    Yeah, we talked to Jon about it when we were in Idaho. We all agreed that the cost didn't justify the benefit. He typically puts those on machines working on steep terrain that have the hydraulicly leveling chasis. Once you level your machine, the boom/head is no longer parallel to the ground.

    The reason I mentioned the tilt attach is that I have worked with another company who had a rotary disc mulcher very similar to the AFE but used stumpgrinder teeth and by tilting the head were able to grind the stumps below ground level. Thought it was a great idea.

    Yea no doubt a great idea but the Afe disc uses feller teeth around the outside cutting edge would probably wear them out alot quicker using it as a stump grinder. If u could get some carbides for the outside teeth I would imagine it would work an last.

    Already planted. We removed the mulch, then landowner applied lime, fertilizer, and drilled peas and oats. Found some huge tracks while we were there.

    Good idea. I've thought about getting some carbide teeth made for the edge of the disc. That would add another option. May need to check into the tilt.
