The kickback will always occur if you run into something like rock. Which actually happened to us on this job. And yes it a light machine that you can handle yourself.

Yeah, same here I can't think of anyone that can match you're fabrication skills.

Don't have any more for sale buddy. Was only able to sell one pair. The gardners here don't really want to spend the money for something nice like that. You should see the ridiculous racks they use or make here. They retail here for $200. We sold ours for $150. Also the price of of metal here has sky rocketed making it dificult to fab something and sell it for a profit.

Ok. Could you get me some ideas as far as needed materials and how long to cut everything? Basically a short tutorial? I have and Oxy/Act rig, stick welder (access to a wire welder), and a chop saw.

I know huh, thanks man. The type of turf is actually Tif Green Bermuda. But it's over seeded with a rye blend. Which the rye will vanish once it really starts to heat up here.
