“We’ve cut 6’ (1.8 m) sudan grass at 10 MPH (16 km/h) with our M205 Rotary Disc windrowers.”

In our custom cutting business what we need is speed – down the road and in the field – and that is what the M205 gives us. On the road the M205s DualDirection™ is a huge thing for us as we can travel at 22 mph between fields. When cutting, I can go as fast as I want; I’ve cut sudan grass 6’ high going 10 MPH (16 km/h). I actually slipped the machine into high side transmission to cut because I couldn’t go fast enough in low. MacDon’s R85 head can handle it just as fast as you’re putting it through – the only thing that slows you down is the condition of the ground. Before these machines we used to cover 2000 acres (809.4 hectares) and now we’re up to 6000 acres (2,428.1 hectares). And I don’t see us slowing down right now. The time we’re saving with these machines is helping us get more business.
