Haymaking 2020 – Mowing

A look back to summer with a video of the first part of the haymaking process, mowing. We were woefully unprepared this year and therefore had to hastily recommission an old Massey Ferguson 732 fingerbar mower which had been languishing in a hedgerow for many years.

In the end the mower did a sterling job in spite of the difficult conditions, producing cleanly cut and well swathed hay ready for tedding.

Plenty of heat and WD40 applied and everything began to move
Knife removed for replacement of sections
