Have bent 2nd blade in 3 wks. Please make avail. a .250 blade for us who have to bush hog. Have been using left over Chopper blades most of the time 'cause these suckers bend if you look at them the wrong. Mower cutting great, just need stronger blades. Spindles don't like well casings either. It ain't a perfect world out here. What factory reps. have to put up with.
