    For your sake, I sure hope I'm not looking at Canada thistle.

    Not sure what kind of thistle it is. After a quick search, it does not appear to be Canada thistle. I can tell you it was over 6' tall in places and has spikes all over it. Not fun to work in. Maybe Scotch thistle? I think I mowed everything, but I'll look and see if there is a survivor or two that can help me I.D. it.

    When mine was delivered, I had asked about the chains. I was told that the front and back were somewhere around $160 each. He did not have his info in front of him, so he could very well be way off on his estimate. I will give him a call tomorrow and ge ta better idea.

    If your sales person is possibly correct I'll be needing to talk to them.

    Canada thistle will have side shoots which run in a horizontal fashion, and the smallest piece broken off when cultivated, will reproduce. Canada thistle is the only member of the family which doesn't have a typical root system. From the picture you posted, I don't think it is Canada thistle. Canada Thistle

    Amstaff,

    That confirms the price I was quoted out here plus shipping. Since the holes are already on the mower, I think I need to get a stick welder and make my own. I'll buy the chain from a rigging supply shop and have the links cut to length, weld to angle iron and mount to the mower. I know I can do all this for less than total cost of the ready to mount set up.
    Does your dealer have a set that you could see. I need to have a link length count and the size. 1/4" or "?". Then I can build it. Better yet, does anyone have a close up photo of a set.
