What size tractor do I need to run a Haybine?
being sensible here– you need at least 50 hp + a tractor with good brakes to do the job safely. I run a 488 with a series 4 D17 Ac diesel loaded rear tires and still get pushed around some on the steep hills. Live power is a must for those times when she plugs up.
How fast can you mow with a Haybine?
Things happen fast at 8-9mph. Personally I’d like a wide sickle machine so I get decent capacity and drive a sensible speed. On my own fields, I have been cutting at 11 mph.
