    DR 3pth Trimmer?

    Has anyone tried one of these on their tractor.
    The DR 3pth trimmer. It looks good, according
    to the reviews, setup is important.

    Looks good! The "DR" company makes some really nice products from what I've seen over the years.

    I like the idea that it will angle down to mow ditch banks.

    Looks like a neat innovation! I kind of puckered up when he was trimming the bank by the pond though. Envisioned the tractor sliding down the bank into the water. I wonder if it works with Green tractors.....???

    Some of the reviews on this are misleading from what I can tell.
    Saw at least a couple with 5 stars but the comments indicate the customer was not happy with the trimmer.

    Here's one regarding their 90 day return policy:

    We returned our three point hitch mower today, it could not handle the rough grounds of the cattle fields. We do have a walk behind DR what we like and i was going to ask for a equal value trade on the return guarantee, but they deduct 'free shipping' from your returns so out of the $1K that I spent, I am only getting back $600 on my trade therefore I will not order another machine

    That threw me too on the star rating. But reading through the
    reviews,it sounded like many people were having setup issues.
    That is why I am asking here if anyone has tried this product.

    DR is CRAP!!!!!!! I have a pto chipper, that has a belt drive. I was feeding it one day, and the thing got jammed. The pto shaft twisted before the belt slipped. I had a heckuva time getting that thing off the tractor when it was stuck in the highest position on the three point. Now, recent models might have a slip clutch, if not, you will want to get a hole drilled for a shear pin.

    Just my $0.02

    I've looked into one in the past for trimming around our post and rail fence. The actual results and reviews where not good. DR does make good stuff, but this one isn't strong. I've been considering a lawn vac for a number of years - maybe one day.

    What I did end up doing is using Cal-Mix pellets as a soil sterilant under the fence to keep things tidy. Works great.

    I gotta admit. It looks like a cool implement if you have alot of grassy fencelines to mow.
    Although that along the pond slope cutting for an extra couple feet looks like a recipe for disaster.

    This is the thing, I know a lot of people with lots of fence line that is
    accessible to my size tractor. So this looked handy.
