I am running a Deere 50D and a Torrent. I love the set up. I mostly do fence rows and road sides.

Hey Buck I would love too hear about the Torrent. I really want one but there are no dealers here where I am and no way to get any feedback on them and they are a little pricey.

I priced one before buying the Rockhound, it looks awesome just more $ than I wanted to spend.

Almost twice as much. I need to be able too mulch trees rather than mow so thats what sparked my interest.

My Torrent is the EX30. I got mine direct from Torrent. Yes they are a little pricey. But I have to say it does everything they said it would, and more. I had to plumb in a case drain on the mini, but other than that no mods to the 50D.

I just wanted to add, I don't really mow. I eat trees, I do road sides for townships and county. I also do lots of farm work, cutting back fence rows and the trees that hang over the field. So keep that in mind.

Yes I have lots of pics both of work that I have done as well as machine. But I have no idea how to post them. I will try and figure it out.

If you have them on pohoto bucket or other photo hosting site then you use little square link that looks like a postcard and copy an dpaste the photos address in it.

Or you can upload them onto Lawnsite through the Attach files button under additional options at the bottom of the page when your writing a post.

What size trees do you mulch with it and how is production? I have a Kx161 which has similar flow as teh JD 50.
