    I like it. Might have to save my nickels and plan on that down the road. I have about a 1000' of fence line I will be cleaning up (taking most of the fence out) and reclaiming the edge.

    Make sure to let us know how it works for you.

    expendable/extendable.... my spell checker wouldn't find extendable
    May not get it for a year or two; I dont have 1000' of fence line to worry about...
    Got to admit, it sure is funny....

    Mine wouldn't allow it either. Is it a word or am I spelling it wrong.

    Actually, I think the correct term is boom mower.

    I picked up the 56" flail (value Leader) last year to do my blueberry field(not the boom mower). Never heard of them before that, but couldn't beat the price $1300 delivered . So far so good , had to grind down some on the front skids to get the bottom hole to line up so I could mow the lowest I could. But I'm happy with it so far, could use some hardened steel blades though. Plain on looking into maybe picking up something later from them.
