We cut a lot of hay with a Versatile 400 swather. They can still be found.

If you want to not windrow the hay, take the canvases out and let it fall on the ground.

We just got rid of our 15 foot with crimper last year. Guy that bought it cut over 300 acres no problem. They ain't fancy but they can still lay a swath

Earliest sickle mower i recall was 3 point one behind the ford 961 dad had. Assume a ford mower but dont know. Remember riding with him once at the other farm and having plugging issues probably from gopher mounds. Think between that and me being not very old it was a short mowing day. Lol

After that he got a well used and beat up looking new holland mower conditioner. Cant recall the model #. Did a good job and we had it from then till we sold out in 86 as far as i recall. As soon as i was old enough i spent many hours running it behind an AC 190. Gopher mounds would plug the sickle on it 2 and i invariably i found them all before i was quick enough to raise the bar up. Look back an a strip of unmowed hay and a mound of dirt on the cutter bar. 🤦‍♂️

Here’s my hay cutting unit. JD no. 5 on a 1951 B.

That takes me back 50 years. Dad borrowed his BIL's A and No 5 to cut sudangrass one summer. My first experience on a putput. Uncle retired a year latter and the A is still here,but it has been dead for 15 years. Cut a lot of hay with it till 83 or 84. Got a New Holland 907 swather. Cut several odd patches and so slow to cut and come back to rake. The mower never got hooked up again. But the memories are all good. Thank you tommy.
