Hay producers now have another option when it comes to disc mowers.

The new Kuhn GMD 2850 TL trailed disc mower is designed primarily for hay producers who prefer the benefits of a trailed disc mower, but require a machine that will fit through narrow gates and passageways.

It has a working width of 8-feet 10-inches and maintains the same features and benefits of the larger models in the GMD TL Series.

The product provides easy hook-and-go attachment and has superior flotation, unlike caddy models, according to the Brodhead, Wisconsin-based manufacturer, Kuhn North America, Inc.

The new Optidisc cutterbar, with differential disc spacing, ensures a clean cut even in challenging conditions. This cutterbar also is “lubed for life,” the company says, decreasing overall maintenance requirements.

The Protectadrive cutterbar provides reliability and improved suspension with greater adjustability. The mower’s trailed design lowers the tractor ballast requirement, allowing use with smaller tractors, while maintaining stability both at work and in transport.  FG
