    Hi Guys,
    This is one of the mowers I'm testing I wanted you guys to take a look and let me know what you think. The ditch im cutting would normaly be line trimed, but with this artiulating offset wing im able to mow about 90% of the ditch. It also works great around the lake and under lowgrowing white pines aswell as on flat ground. I hope the picture gets attached i have not posted a pic before.

    That is a very interesting idea. Kinda like a built on flex-deck. If you had a lot of ponds or low trees...that would be a savior.

    If you have the work for it and saves you time and money go for it. Thats how I justify purchases.

    Sweet, when do you think it will be out on the market. I could use something like that for mowing ditches or even just wide are mowing.
