    Brought home a new toy .........

    errr, ahh Implement..... TOOL! Found this on CL this morning for $575. It is the 50" deck sold as 48" on TSC. Been looking for one for some time now. Guy bought it last year used it one time. Didn't work well with his 900 series. The blades are still sharp. Can't wait to hook it up and get it set up for the tractor. Currently no grass/weed to mow so it can wait.

    that is a terrific price for that. i have a jd 4fter. the only problem i have with mine is width. 48 inches doesn't cover my tire tracks at all. i have just had to make extra rounds over the yrs.. which i guess is not a bad thing-right. but ahh-i would love to have that extra foot to play with each round

    Yeah, I knew it was shorter than my wheel base. But with the hills, trees and rocks I have to mow around I knew it would be my best bet. I would be able to maneuver between the trees and be able to lift the cutter and not have to worry about weights on the front. The actual cut is around 50 inches, so it will not be too bad. I hope to only have to use it twice a year. If not that is fine also.

    The only question I have would be, do I need a slip clutch for the cutter? Or is more of an item to prevent stalling. Not so much damaging the PTO drive.

    I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you've got it on the wrong end of the tractor. (J/K)

    Here's my story: http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...placement.html

    I did not have a slip clutch and that kind of failure happened without breaking the shear bolt, or the tractor for that matter. If you are not using a clutch, make sure the shear bolt is correct, if you are using one, make sure it's is adjusted and not rusted together if kept outside. I have one to put on after the rebuild, I just need to get around to it.

    I will say that I am probably the worst case user of a brush cutter. Maintaining deer lease property finds huge rocks, hidden stumps and all kinds of other things that are not nice to them.

    I think I would want a slip clutch plus make sure you have the correct shear bolt.. Don't replace the shear bolt with a Grade 8 bolt.

    I would rather take a smaller pass once in a while than replacing the rear PTO of tractor or replace the tractor.

    Shear bolts have worked well for a very long time and with the correct one installed require no maintenance. Slip clutches need to be cleaned and adjusted yearly. Strange accidents like Bubber had can happen with either one, it just comes down to how much you use the mower and personal preference.
