    Landpride RCR1260 Spring Maintenance

    Well I got the bush hog out of storage and started giving it a good go over before putting it back in service.

    The front belt was showing a little wear and I had some horse stall mat left over so that got "upgraded".

    I noticed some small stress cracks in the sides right behind where the skids end. I picked up some 1/8" x 2" flat bar to reinforce that area.

    I am also going to use the same material to build up the back where I "bumped" it a couple times on some stumps and then cut some more stall mat to replace the rear guard.

    This was last year after the oops....

    Looks great! A little time spent here and there goes a long way for the longevity of our equipment. When I buy an implement I consider it a lifetime purchase.

    The first couple of years cleaning up my brothers place were a little hard on the cutter, but she is holding up pretty well.

    Some places along the edges of the old fields I was backing into to get under some trees and "found" and occasional stump.

    Figured it was time to give it a good once over, and maybe build a bumper for the back end...

    I did.

    It faded.

    Almost bought a new RCR1860 at the auction the other week. They went for a good price, just didn't have the pocket change.

    When using my Bush Hog in the woods most of the time, I do a lot of backing up between trees. Those small hidden stumps will get you every time.

    I did get a green one and the rear chain curtain lasted less than an hour.
