Subject: sycle type mower vs discbine


We are in need of a new mower and are contemplating wether or not to switch to a discbine or just upgrade to another sycle type mower. We currently cut with a NH 12' 499 and it's starting to need more and more repairs.

What are the benefits/drawbacks from going from the 499 to a discbine?
Do the discbines pick up more dirt?
Whats the difference between the two in maitenance?
What brands are good and bad? We have NH, JD, Krone, Hestton, and IH dealers (also MacDon if they make discbines).
Also what type of rolls for alfalfa and grass hay? rubber-rubber, rubber-steel, etc.
What do we need to look over when looking at one?
How many acres/hr can you cut with your discbine and what width?
I'm sure there will be more questions to come...
