    I agree with OxPath, nice weld Arlen and a tough weld, around such a small rod/pin.

    I’m surprised I haven’t done this yet...

    I brush hog around the perimeter of my mowed areas usually this time of year - have to keep the forest from creeping in. I have to back into the 4’-5’ tall weeds the whole way around. I know there are some hidden stumps here and there but can never remember where they actually are.

    That’s what got me. We cut a bunch of trees last year on the edge of a meadow. This year the weeds grew up 10 feet tall!

    Yes, I have a Emerson that I bought at an auction at least 30 years ago, and it looked like it was at least 40 years old at the time.

    I saved a hundred bucks because someone else stuck their hog in the wrong bush!!!

    I mean, they only tore it up a little (you could tell they were amateurs), and I knew I was tooled up to get past the damage pretty easily.

    Cost me about 4 hours of bangin' in my garage... but I don't mind doing some the bangin' if it saves me a couple bucks...

    I had to put my beer down a couple times when I needed both hands, and I was on my knees a couple times, but for the most part it was a pleasure doing it, as I was in my garage with great lighting and some nice music on.

    My work was a little sloppy, but those parts are underneath, where you can't see unless you go looking.

    My back was sore for a couple days for sure...

    My story...
    I saw an ad for a used rotary cutter at a dealer I wont name (not "my" dealer)... called, tried to haggle, and was told "you can see from the photos it's clean, the price I gave you is the price"
    Drove an hour away to go get it, and when I saw it with the blue mower deck removed from the top of it, I could see the entire rear of it rolled under. Like.. what use to point back, was pointing front... no bueno.. I don't mean a little... I mean, you could have used it to plow...
    (Poor design by the manufacturer.. the rear comes to a point...if you back into anything, it was going underground. Its like Taylor started making a tree spade and then decided to flip it over and make a bush hog out of it instead...odd.. I've reinforced it, and put a "skid" on it to keep it from digging so bad...)

    I apologize for not taking pictures of the "before" damage (wasn't thinking pics of a bent hog would interest anyone...)... and maybe I'll take a shot of the "after" and post up.. but here is the picture from the ad for those of you who'd like a laugh... I shoulda seen it comin'...I like to think I'm smarter than I was that day. I made an assumption that because this was a bona fide Deere dealer, that I wouldn't find this kind of behavior. I saved enough money, after some discussion, so that I didn't feel like I was the one gettin' screwed.
