Hay producers, start your engines, because Case IH, Claas, and New Holland have all announced new mower lineups for 2022.

Each lineup from the three companies has a variety of models to fit small or large operations.

Case IH DC5 series disc mower conditioners

Case IH is now offering new size options for center-pivot DC5 series disc mower conditioners, designed for higher performance in a smaller build. Other changes to the mowers are designed for better crop flow, faster dry drown, and no-tool adjustments to the implement.

The DC105 disc mower conditioner is a new configuration from Case IH with a modular cutterbar that has a width of 10 feet 1 inch. The conditioning system is available in rubber or flail style. A smaller center pivot and overall size is designed for easier road and small-field navigation.

The DC125 has a longer swath gate, with adjustments made to fins and wedges to enhance cutting and windrowing over previous models, and has a cut width of 11 feet 7 inches. The DC135 model is replacing Case IH’s DC133 in the company’s mower lineup. This model has a cutterbar width of 13 feet 1 inch, with eight discs. Both of these models have the option of rubber, steel rolls, or flail conditioning.


The new DC165 is replacing the DC 163, as well, with an even larger cutterbar at 16 feet 5 inches and ten cutting discs. This model is offered with rubber or steel roll conditioning.

The new DC5 series disc mower conditioners are available to order now. For more information, visit CaseIH.com.


The new Disco 9300 mower from Claas has a large working width available in either 29 feet 2 inches or 29 feet 10 inches configurations. Despite the size, the Disco has a lower profile, with 150 PTO HP power requirement, and doesn’t require a monitor for operation.

The cutterbar is designed to be maintenance free, with a bolted, torsion-resistant build. Each cutterbar has eight contra-rotating mower discs, uniformly spaced for an even cutting pattern. The one-piece base plate is made of 5 mm thick steel and creates a dirt-removing tunnel effect in connection with the skids. The intermediate pieces are shaped differently for converging and diverging mower discs to enable an effective cut as a counter blade and for maximum overlap.


The protective curtains on the mower fold out wide for access to the cutterbar for maintenance, and the build is designed to prevent the turning and attachment points from rusting. The mower bar is equipped with a quick knife change system, with color-coded blades to make changing them out easier, and the replacement blade box is divided into three compartments to keep them sorted.

New Holland Discbine PLUS series

With the introduction of the new Discbine Plus series, New Holland focused on enhancing cutting and swath controls for its center-pivot disc mower conditioners. All the models in this series use a newly redesigned cutterbar, similar to the one featured on New Holland’s Durabine Plus disc headers on the Speedrower Plus windrowers.

The cutterbar has longer knives for a faster tip speed, designed for improved cut quality. The models have a 30% lower cutting height than previous models, to leave less behind in down and tangled crops. Reshaped rock guards help with crop-to-knife engagement.

The Discbine Plus’ conditioning system is sized for each model for uniform conditioning and fast drydown across the entire series. Conditioning options include intermeshing rubber or steel rolls. A flail tine conditioning system is also available.


The swath gate is 5 inches longer, with adjustable crop spreading wedges to break up crop streams. These also have adjustable crop fins to make windrows as 3- to 8-feet wide. The forming shields are also 5 inches taller than previous models and work with the swatch gate to make a tunnel effect designed for more windrow control and neater swaths.

The Discbine 310 Plus has a six-disc cutterbar with a cut width of 10 feet 1 inch. This model can be equipped with a 540- or 1,000- rpm drive, and requires as little as 80 HP to operate. The 312 Plus has a 11 feet 7 inches wide cut, with a 1,000 rpm drive. The 313 Plus has a wider cut than the 312 with an additional 1 foot 4 inches to its width. The 316 Plus has the widest cut in the series at 16 feet 5 inches.

PRO-TILL 20/26

With the Pro-Till 20/26, Degelman Industries is able to offer the same high-speed, high-performance discs as our three-plex machines in a size that fits the 300 – 450 HP range, all without sacrificing our frame size, or the average weight per foot. In addition, we made the 20/26 Ft Pro-Till our first ever, completely greaseless, maintenance-free machine. It’s true “drop the pin and go” mentality.


Put away the grease gun. The window for spring and fall work is quick and unforgiving. Give yourself the upper hand with game changing maintenance-free technology.

Farming operations are becoming bigger and more complicated every day. We know time is money, and that you have more to worry about then greasing your tillage equipment. Zero-maintenance pins, completely sealed bearings, and bullet-proof disc hubs make the Pro-Till 20/26 worry-free tillage.

Pin Eye Cylinders

The welded pin eye cylinder series is designed to withstand the most demanding applications on the market today. Lion’s extensive design experience has resulted in a premium rephasing cylinder with the latest in sealing and rephasing technology and standard Lion1000 induction hardened rods for the ultimate in corrosion protection and durability.

Exclusive Self-Lubricated, Zero Maintenance Bushing

These bushings, manufactured from a friction liner applied on a glass fiber structure, have excellent friction properties and improved wear resistance without external lubrication, even on high loads.

Bushing Seal

The wiper edge removes even the toughest dirt and contaminants from the pin, keeping the system running clean and at its peak performance. The metal enclosure ensures a secure fit in the open housing, preventing expulsion of the wiper, even under extreme conditions.

Oversized Electroless Plated Nickel Pin

At 2” in diameter, these high-tensile steel pins are 60% larger than any other pin on the market.

Safely Transport To From The Field

Pro-Till is user-friendly, allowing the operator to engage the transport position from the safety of the tractor seat. The wing-forward design is incredibly compact and stable for road transport. It incorporates an ultra-low profile-under 13’ (3.9m). which is ideal for clearing bridges and power lines. The hitch weight is positive, creating a safe and highly maneuverable machine.

Swing Away Deflector

The swing away deflector is a strong, simple part that redistributes soil from the front discs to the rear of the back discs to ensure no ridges or grooves are left. The depth of the deflector can be adjusted. The teeth vibrate to allow fine soil to sift through without sticking. The deflector can be rotated 180 degrees when not in use.

New for 2021 and now standard on all 20 and 26 foot machines are hydraulically adjustable gauge wheels. These end wheels provide additional flotation in the field, especially in softer field conditions, and help provide a level and consistent field finish. Gauge wheels are retro-fittable with all previous bi-fold Pro-Till models and feature a high-quality Alliance 400/60-15.5 tire.

Pro-Till 20/26 with HD Arms

The Pro-Till 20/26 comes with optional HD arms to accomodate 26 discs. This allows for consistent increased depth in the field and extreme soil movement. Designed with potato and vegetable growers in mind, the Pro-Till with HD arms adds another level of versatility to our high performance discs.

R1 Series

Don’t be limited by transport width. In just 30 seconds our Road Friendly Transport TM option, transforms both our 13 and 16 foot R1’s to a narrow 9 foot wide transport. This allows for quick, safe travel to, from, and between fields.

Some products and/or options may not be available in all markets. See your MacDon Dealer for availability.

No Mow Limitations

No matter what the harvest situation or conditioning need, the R1 lays down well-formed, well-conditioned windrows with the industry’s widest roll at 129” (328cm), and four interchangeable conditioning options. Don’t limit your harvesting possibilities, find out why more top producers trust MacDon for their harvest.

9’ Wide Road Friendly Transport (Optional)

Road Friendly Transport TM option is available on both models. This dealer installed option transforms the R1 to a road friendly 9’ (2.75m) wide transport. Switch from field to transport in 30 seconds, for quick, safe travel to, from, and between fields. Moving from a 10 to 16 foot mower can increase productivity by 60%, making this option ideal for operations where width restrictions are the limiting factor.

Clean Cut 3 Year Cutterbar Warranty

Our low profile forward mounted cutting discs provide a flat header angle resulting in a cleaner, smoother cut than ever before. And this new design is backed by MacDon’s 3 Year Cutterbar Warranty. That’s our way of ensuring worry-free harvesting performance.

Serious Conditioning

Featuring the industry’s widest conditioning roll at 129” (328cm), and 4 interchangeable conditioning options. Choose from Steel Inter-Meshing, Polyurethane Inter-Meshing, Finger Conditioner, or No Conditioner option. The R1 lays down well-formed, well-conditioned WIDE to NARROW windrows to suit a variety of conditioning needs.

Low Horse Power Requirements (PTO Completion Package)

Requires only 100hp for 13’ and 125hp for 16’ model. 1000 PTO 1.375” (35mm) / 21 spline or 1.75” (45mm) / 20 spline. Less horse power means less fuel consumption.

Polyurethane Iinter-Meshing Conditioning Roller Option

Conditioner Action

  • A combination of the wide rolls (129”) which promotes a thin material mat and the roll profile (crush type) is ideally suited to such crops as alfalfa, alfalfa/grass mix
  • Also effective for finer stemmed plants which usually have more solid stems like native hay, timothy and bermuda grass

Steel Inter-Meshing Conditioning Roller Option

Conditioner Action

  • A crimp style is especially effective for stiff or solid plant stem material
  • Produces well-formed windrows over a wide range of widths
  • For high volume crops where aggressive feeding through header is an advantage, such as milo, sudan grass, and oats
  • In smooth stemmed crops like timothy, the steel bars provide positive crop flow from cutterbar to the windrow
  • For alfalfa producers, the steel inter-meshing roll action assists plant dry down by creating uniform crimps on the plant stem, without bruising the delicate leaves
  • Able to provide consistent conditioning through uneven crop volumes
  • In areas where crops and or conditions are considered to be abrasive
  • Extremely durable requires minimal maintenance

Finger Conditioning Roller Option

Conditioner Action

  • Crops and conditions where removal of stem waxes combined with fluffier windrows are able to achieve desired dry down times such as Coastal Grass and other mixed forages
  • Requires the least amount of horsepower of the conditioner types

A rotary disc mower is a gentle tool for harvesting the pasture

Kellfri’s rotary mower gently harvests grass from your field without damaging roots of the mowed culture. This increases efficiency and the probability of a good crop at next mowing.

This machine is specifically designed for grass surfaces and should not be use on stony terrain. For mowing rough terrain, we instead recommend Kellfri Flail mowers.

Our FDM200 rotary disc mower is a practical tool for simply mowing grass for feed or hay. The rotary disc mower is designed and adapted to enable you to slightly larger pastures gently and effectively. This rotary disc mower has a working width of 2.0 m and is adapted for tractors from 50 HP.

The mower is equipped with five oval rotary discs that cut the grass effectively, with better cutting performance that gives good growth. There are two raised rotary discs with guide blades in each outer edge, which raise the throughflow speed and ensure that the crop flows freely without interruption. Individual skids under each disc protect the bar, which lies well balanced and very lightly against the ground. The cutting height is 0-100 mm and the row width is 1000 – 1700 mm.

The rotary disc mower is fitted with a protective cover over the whole cutter bar, protecting both the tractor and the surroundings from stone chipping and grass spray. The protective frame around the cutter bar is constructed of a single frame which gives stable support to the entire protective frame and protective cover. The protective frame can also be folded open during maintenance.

The cutter bar is fitted with gliding plates at both ends. The bar is set at 90° in transport mode and can if necessary be lowered to 10°.

Collision protection, relief springs and hydraulic raising

The machine is equipped with a stone ejector as collision protection, which ejects backwards at an angle in order to reduce stresses in a collision.

disc, mower, requirements, mowers, market

Adjustable relief springs relieve the pressure of the rotor beam against the ground to minimise damage to the ground.

The rotary disc mower has a hydraulic raising function with a manual lock for a secure transport mode. The transport width is no wider than the tractor.

Geometrical and powerful energy transmission from PTO to beam by means of ventilated belt drive and bevel gear.

Supplied with PTO drive shaft and transmission oil. The rotary disc mower requires one double-acting hydraulic outlet on the tractor. Two hydraulic ½ inch quick coupling male hoses.
