    Default Woods MD 160 for $1K?

    A guy down the road is moving and selling all his tractor stuff.
    He has a Woods MD 160 rotary cutter for $1k, could probably
    deal and get it for $900. Would you jump on this?

    My situation: kubota 2910, would need the cutter for clearing
    undergrowth and trails through my woods, so the 2" capacity
    would be a big plus. The 160 has chain guards, slip clutch,
    and laminated tailwheel. Not sure if it has a stump jumper
    (this was an option).

    I was planning on buying a BB60 in the spring but this might
    be my best shot at an MD cutter. I know Glennmac is running
    one on a 2910. No way would I feel comfortable with a BB600
    (>1000 lbs) on a 2910. I really like the design of the BB60
    and am wondering whether the 3/8" x 3" blades on the BB60
    might not do almost as well on thick brush as the 3/8" x 4"
    blades on the MD 160.

    So my Q is: MD160 now or BB60 in the spring? For anyone
    who has cut brush with a BB60, what is the thickest stuff
    you have gone through?

    This guy also has a JD 770 with loader, asking $12,900, and
    a 3PH tiller with about 2 hours on it, asking $1400. Email me
    (see profile) if interested for contact info. This is southern NH.

    I bought a brand new MD 172 with chains, slip clutch and stump jumper for $1700 so if you can get it for $900 and it is in good condition go for it. Most of them seem to come with the stump jumpers and I am not sure but I thought it was standard equipment. Good luck

    Finally got back over there this morning to look at the tiller.
    It's a Kuhn model EL 32 with slip clutch. 48" cut, 51" transport
    width. Used 2 hours and stored in garage since.
    He's asking $1400.
