    Do you have a backhoe? Get rid of the stump! Or paint the stump Kabota Orange then blame it on Kabota. I didn't think the manufacture of a tractor made a difference on the blades. The blades are most likely made in Japan anyhow from the steel we send them. Seriously, bending the first blade most likely caused the second blade to bend if you kept it on. I do not know of too many blades that can withstand a stump.

    i do not have a 60d But i am amazed how good my blades look after 3 years since i replace them -about 150 hours I hit roots stones and boulders from time to time hard jd x540 48 deck To answer your question -they are hard to bend
    On a second thought maybe pto drive deck will bend a blade much easy than a belt drive deck
