    Lot's of safety features. Chalk up another one for redneck ingenuity.

    I'd like to know (mechanincallly ) how he/she get the pto drive to turn 90* to run the blade (not less at a decent speed).

    I'd be sceptical before purchase.

    I f I'm not mistaken ( that does happen alot) Wouldn't the center of blade at the axle yoke turn 4 times to 1 revolutin with the wheel..If rear end has say 4:10 gears? The 90 degree is already there. I personally think you'd have to use it only on heavy ,thick brush..couldn't go fast enough to get blade up grass cutting speed? The blae is moving much faster than center of yoke..but my opinion is still to slow- (is this one of those 'mistake' moments?)

    These used to be very popular in Texas. I have seen probably more than 100 of them over the past 30 years, mostly in East Texas.
