    As the other poster pointed out.. King Kutter and Kodiak are not the same, and there is a percieved quality difference between the two.

    Hi Soundguy
    Do you know what the Gear box ratio on the K K is
    The Kodiak t box is 1.22 and the side boxes are 1.46.
    We are still trying to get it to cut the way we want it to.
    Thanks Bruce

    We got the rotter cutter working good.
    We changed the gears from 1.22 to 1. 47 on the main gear box.
    so thats is equal to 1.93 speed up on a 540 rpm pto.
    We also found that the drag chains on the front where in a loop
    Instead hanging seperatly.
    Causing the grass and weeds to be pushed down
    So the blades could not get to them easly.
    We took the chains off.
    Also leveled it up and drive slow.
    The cut looks almost as good as some lawn mowers.
