A drum mower is used for hay cutting, leaving the cut grass ready for baling. Drum mowers have two counter-rotating drums powered from a gearbox above, causing the cut crop to pass between the drums and be dropped in a windrow behind the mower.
Drum Mower L1000 series
A drum mower can be run at higher speeds than a disc mower or sickle bar mower. Instead of powering the cutting blades from the cutter bar, these mower drums are powered by a gearbox. The standard drum mower has two counter-rotating drums. As the mower travels through the field, the drums rotate toward each other, causing the cut crop to pass between the drums and be dropped behind the machine, placing the grass/hay in rows ready to dry or gather. The rows can then be spread back out with a tedder or rake in order for the hay to dry properly.
