I was cutting around 2 fields and then the race track in our field. I stopped multiple times to check that the blades were able to move and free. It was not a horrible vibration, but you could see everything on the cutter moving and feel it in the tractor. It seemed to get better twords the end.

I sprayed some pentrol in the blade holes to try to keep them moving. Alot of the paint has wore off where the blade spins.... I have not hit anything with this and I have been very careful since this is a new unit....

I can remember my mx5 doing the same thing, but once I lubed the blades it was better. Is this something everyone goes through? Or am I being over sensitive to the issue?

Probably over sensitive. I would guess, the blades may still be tight and took a while to sling out to full operating position. Ken Sweet

My dads mx6 has done that but only when i hit something. It will shake the whole tractor while it tries to get back up to speed. I find all sorts of stuff in our fields. Mostly chunks of concrete and masonry waste.

I thought the same thing Darin. I thought maybe it was out. Its hard to tell with the plastic covering it.... I am waiting for the new tractor to get it out and see whats up. I feel a bit more safe with a heavier tractor, plus my 3 point issue of dropping and raising is getting pretty bad. It dropps about an inch in ten seconds and then raises with the MX6 back there.

You have be thinking becasue it is a pretty fast vibration. about 3 vibes per second maybe 4..... How hard is it to bend a driveshaft. I am wondering if it might have got tweeked in loading or shipping? It goes in and out smooth?
