Of course, you had to be right.......


Used it today in a landscaping bed that had old tree roots. Pretty much bent the C-channel used to mount the teeth. The welds held but the lack of the mounts being boxed in was the Achilles heel.

Part of me thinks that I straddled the old stump, and thus bending them outward.

I was extremely surprised it happened but it did. The machine has more power than I thought.

I'll be having a shop re-make the mounting brackets again and boxing in the C-channel along with extra gussets.
