The teeth on my mower look pretty similar to what you see there. I have a few less chunks, but the edges are still dinged up a bit with about 150-200hrs on them. I do have the third thatch blade between the two flail blades, and those seem to have no damage to them. I'll try to get some photos of them next week when I hook the mower back up to the machine for some upcoming projects.

In terms of sharpening them, I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. I'm thinking that I'm going to run them this way for 100-200 hrs more and then flip them around to use the other edge. I haven't heard from anyone whether sharpening them would be a good idea. I'm open to suggestions though

I have the long stick on my 50D.

I can see myself crying like a little girly man, that's a tight looking ROPS.

I sure hope I can swing a machine with a cab this fall. This is my second bout with poison ivy this year and I don't walk around in the brush.

Geez, I don't think my skinny azz could fit in that ROPS. You thought about a sheet of plexi over the front? The gaurding you have right now looks almost comical(IMO), and t would improve your visibility by a lot.

I finished the work for the farm on Saturday. I took some pics during lunch. Before I got off the field, they were already working it up for beans. Tomorrow I'll be back clearing roads again.

When did you guys get a tandem axle oil truck? Seen it working in my area today and never realized that you had a truck that big.
