    Open Station with the drive over MMM

    For those of you that have this setup, how is the dust and debris from the machine as you're mowing?
    I'm currently using a 3pt hitch finish mower that does a great job but am seriously considering the MMM option this year. I'm nervous as a sinner in church about spending this much cash and not being satisfied but I'm hoping that the dealer will allow me to try one out even if it's at the business. I'm also counting on the experience from many of the members in here that use the MMM.

    This is the only way I mow. If there is wind you'll get it in the face and the rest of your body when it's blowing toward you from the discharge shute. If the grass is sparse you'll get the same thing in the same areas only it will be dust. Wind is what gets you every time. At the same time wind is your friend when them little bitty flies won't leave you alone or it's hot out. I've thought about a 3PH mower but I like the convenience of the MMM. Don't have to look back to see where the mower is and redo my way of making turns. There are times a 3PH type would be better but it does make for a long piece of equipment.

    Here are some links that will provide some helpful information to your questions.

    Belly mount VS. 3Ph mounted finish mower? Rotary VS. flail type mower?

    Belly Mower vs. Rear Finishing Mower -- Grooming Mowers Finish Mowers -- Page 1

    Viewing a thread - Compact tractors & rearmount finishing mowers

    Belly mower or 3 pt hitch mower

    And lastly here's some information about rear flail mowers that you should consider.


    Hope this helps!

    I appreciate all the info. My woods rear mount has the bar set pretty high in terms of mowing the grass and I'm mainly concerned if the JD MMM will perform as well or better and also the convenience or inconvenience of having the belly mower under the tractor.
    Also, one of the primary reasons I'm considering the MMM is to take advantage of removing my leaves in the Fall by having the ability to pull my trailer and plumb the mower in to my debris loader and in to the trailer.
    With the amount that a MMM cost, I want to make as sure as possible that I'll be satisfied.

    Can't think of an inconvenience with the MMM unless you count having to go under tree limbs that are to low for the tractor to get under or possibly scalping on uneven ground.

    Does the 72" come with an anti scalp roller? Or maybe it doesnt need one since the height adjustment is maintained by the tractor and not by the casters??

    sorry for all the silly questions

    For the last 31 years, I've worn a respirator with dust cartridges whenever I mow. If I mowed lush green fields of grass, I probably would not do that. But I mow grass, weeds, dust piles, yuccas, cactus, elk poop, and many other things that I'm not sure what they are but they create a dark cloud when I mow. And it seems that I always have the wind blowing just the right direction to coat me and the tractor with all of this. I carry my electric blower and stop when the tractor temp goes up and blow the radiator screens clean. After a really good mowing, my wife meets me in the garage and insists that I take my clothes off before entering the house. (My "coating" makes it impossible to turn this into a romantic moment.) And I still leave a trail of debris all the way to the shower.

    It would be nice to have a sealed, air-conditioned cab with space for an ice bucket and a pitcher of cool drinks. But then the tractor and I wouldn't be in this together. This way, we're a team. A dirty team, but a team.
