How much horsepower do you need to run a lawn mower conditioner?

How does a mower conditioner work?

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.

Disc mowers handle thick and lodged hay with ease. High cutting speeds. If you have the horsepower, there is almost no limit to how fast you can drive through the field. Speeds of up to 15 mph or more are feasible, though very few tractors can do this safely.
What should I look for when buying a disc mower?
Visual condition, if it looks beat to hell, it probably has been. Look for hydraulic leaks around cylinder and bar oil leaks around the cutter bar. Look at the blades, if they’re super worn down then the cutter probably hasn’t seen very regular maintenance.
