Location: Leavenworth, Kansas
Trailed Mower: TM1410
Tom Schwinn, a third-generation farmer and second-generation owner of Schwinn Farms Incorporated in Leavenworth, Kansas, has spent his fair share of time in the field. Mowing, raking, baling, chopping, planting, harvesting and choring. While Tom was pretty happy and content with his current operation, he made one change and wow did it make a difference — switching to a Vermeer® TM1410 trailed mower. The Schwinn family was pulling three 10-ft mower conditioners with just as many tractors, and they had to hustle to mow 5 acres an hour with each machine. Now they’re mowing at 12 – 14 acres per hour with a single 20-ft trailed mower.
