    RC 2072 safety chains or guards

    I just got my new tractor/rotary cutter (RC 2072) and i didn't know chains or other guards were extra. I had to mow and I knew the area was free from debris, so I mowed. I will be in the future mowing area i don't know and would like a guard of some sort.

    The chains and a little bit of cable from JD is over $300.

    Are there 3rd party chains or guards, my google fu was seriously lacking on this - I tried for quite a while and got almost no where...

    Or, do i just take my medicine and get the JD chains?

    I wasn't aware that they came without a guard....

    Some have the baler belt, others the chain.

    Pretty sure they HAVE to come with a guard.

    Same thought here, I know mine came with chain guards front and rear.

    Iíve never seen them without the guard. Iíve had chains on all of mine so I canít comment on the rubber. Chains seem to work fine.

    Hmm, I am still a few thousand miles from home, but maybe I'll email the dealer and due to the quick nature in which they put it together they forgot to put the chains on.....

    My RC2072 came with the rear chain guard, the dealer never mentioned it was an extra. But, as you can see from the photo below, I no longer have a rear chain! I lost it the first couple weeks I owned the cutter. Seems that backing into small brush will bend the guard causing the cable to come off. The cable holds the chains. The good news was I found the cable - wrapped around the tines of my 6 foot tiller.

    I know it's not the same unit, but my RC2060 came with the belting in the front and the solid metal shield on the rear. Depending on how your dealer specs the mowers, it should have either the belting/metal or the chains.

    I am guessing the guards are optional. They are for other brands. My Bush Hog has chains. My first Woods nothing, my second Woods belting (front only).
