I don't know. only used it a few times just testing it out last fall. Had to wait for a new gear box since it was damaged when it arrived.and you never had this problem before you changed hammers?
First real use was in February on a vacant lot so it was mostly just dead weeds and crap. That's where I got into some unknown rocks and cement and broke a few hammers and bent up a few.
I was only going to replace the damaged ones but Betstco's price is high and shipping is really high.
I got a five pack of Titan hammers to see how they matched up and they were a good fit and looked better than the originals. They were about $3 cheaper than the originals and free shipping.
I ended up replacing all with Titans.
They mowed real nice but the consensus is the ridges are from the tires and a combination of soft ground and green, flexible grasses.
I also found my Deere one which rotates the opposite direction cut better in the same conditions.
Anyway, the Betstco is sold so not a worry anymore!
