I've used a Fella conditioner mower for years now.

JD 630 MoCo is what we use in our Bermuda (and we have Vaughn's as well). Have used disc cutters in the past, but feel that the conditioner just makes better hay.

I used to use JD 1209 swathers. I now use a drum mower. 3 reasons: Tired of sickles, retired to smaller operation, don't need crimper for Coastal. For my SS patches I use an IH 404 crimper. Yes it requires a second pass but it makes short work of curing.
