    Dick...

    Did anyone ever tell you... you have excellent taste in implements.... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    How long have you had yours...? They do offer the 472 with dual tail wheels...

    My next upgrade will be the 672 or the Tree cutter… TCO-2615 … I figure by then I’ll have to upgrade the tractor as well… [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I think the underside of a rotary cutter is considered "Tractor Porn" [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    John - I bought my Brown in July of 2000. At the time I looking for testimony. Didn't get any but decided to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.tractorbynet.com/cgi-bin/compact/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&amp;Board=owning&amp;Number=1 0108&amp;Search=true&amp;Forum=All_Forums&amp;Word s=bought%20the%20brown%20rotary&amp;Match=Entire%2 0Phrase&amp;Searchpage=0&amp;Limit=50&amp;Old=allp osts&amp;Main=10108>buy it anyway because of its Bush Hog 286 similarity, but friendlier dealer. I like the mass of it.

    Oh, and to allay any fears of blade metallurgy causing straightened ones to crack (pennwalk above) - they are dead soft at the pin end.

    Bottom of John Deere 513 rotary cutter... (regular duty using 3" wide blades)
    {see attachment}

    Notice 1" thick steel blade holder {missing optional stump jumper pan}

    On the heftier rotary cutters, these are huge "flywheels" up to 40" diameter @ 1 1/4" thick weighing as much as 625lbs. alone...
