    PZ Haybob

    I am looking for a PZ haybob - which is about 4 meters wide. I dont know if they still make them from new, or if there are any companies that manufacture them. I know that many companies make the single types (either row or turn). However, i am looking for the dual type (row and turn). We currently have one - which we have had for the best part of 15 years, and has never let us down - so looking to replace it with the same make, and same size. We bought a PZ300 last year, however it is too small, and we prefer the larger type. The one we have at the moment has 4 separate carriers - which all spin off of the one PTO shaft. The outer two swing back in when not in use to minimise the size of it. Any information would be ace. Tom

    I think it'll be the PZ HS360 you might be meaning. It's just like a normal 300 but with a telescopic middle. PZ only made them for a short while because they had a bit of gearbox trouble in heavy crops of grass. People used to try and put too much, too fast through it. The only other one I can think of would be the Jumbo420. It looked like a big Haybob but couldn't spread.

    My mistake - It is the 360, with the telescopic outer turners. We never had to replace the Gearbox....but that could be due to a 'careful drive'....on second hand, could be down to luck! I would be willing to take any make that does both rowing and turning....and does at least 4 meters... Tom

So much for wanting your business! [;)]

    There does seem to be a problem with the link. Sometimes when I click on to this posting, there's a log-in / password box that comes up with 'Portal Authentication' marked on it. I'm not sure what sure to make of their website, it's slow and complicated in my view, and then when you've waited it's not that special what's been found. What does anyone else think of it? Or is it just me and my slow dial up connection?

    We have had both, And i can say that the 360 was without a doubt the better one. Because it has 4 different turners, all with their own wheel, and fully adjustable, there was hardily ever any waist when using it (didnt miss any Hay). Not only that, but less tines were broken. The 360 was obviously that little bit bigger - which meant that you could cover move land, yet not huge when traveling along the road. Tom
