BiG M 450

Nelson Birney and family operate Skyline Farms near Cadiz, Ohio, harvesting 1,600 acres of hay, and baling over 12,000 large square bales per year. Nelson has run BiG M Self-Propelled Mower Conditioners for several years, most recently purchasing a new BiG M 450 with Steel Rollers, mowing 36’9” wide.

Says Nelson, “Running one BiG M is a lot cheaper than running two self-propelled windrowers because we’re using a lot less fuel, and we save on labor.  I like the crimping action with these steel rollers because it crimps really good, so you get more bend in the stem.  We can gain about a day overall in faster drying time.”
