We're doing agroforestry which is rows of trees 7m apart with grass in between. I can't imagine many contractors being keen on taking the care needed to mow between the rows and we'd like to get something bigger than the 6 foot topper for doing some jobs about the place so we're thinking of buying a mower and cutting it ourselves. There's two basic questions, what mower to get and then what to do with the grass after it's mowed. We have the 7610 now which I'm assuming will be capable of driving any mower that might suit the job, speed is not going to be high running between the trees anyway. I'm thinking mounted not trailed for maneuverability between the rows, but how big and conditioner or not? Then how do you make a single row? there isnt room to work two passes of a single rotor rake. A fransgard 390 is supposed to be able to take two conditioned 8 foots into one and they don't cost the earth. haybob 380 or lely hayzip 380 are all on a similar theme. 8 foot mounted mocos don't seem to be mad expensive compared to plain discs, I'm guessing because they're too small? or if I went with a plain disc and a haybob could I go up to a 9 foot disc? would be taking 6 of the 7 metres as opposed to 5 with the 8 foot. if you rowed up with the haybob could you bring the two rows together on a second pass? The 8 foot moco and oversized haybob certainly seems the simplest approach, anyone have any other ideas? I know the haybob doesnt leave the perfect row, but I also know that most haybobs are rowing up in their tedding mode and they can be improved upon.
