Those pictures are a perfect example of what your setup is built for. Those little 50s seem to be money makers.

Ya, this 50 setup is working out very well for the work I keep getting.

And no Chris, I didn't hit any cars The trick is to keep it so that the area to the left of the mower (from the operator's viewpoint), is aiming away from anything that you don't want to riddle with chips.

Here is another project that was just done recently. Here, we had to clear out an embankment that ran underneath some powerlines along an old, raised railroad bed. Originally the vegetation on the embankment was going to be cut, dragged up to the top, and cut by hand, but after people saw what the 50 could do, it was decided to use the 50 instead.
