Pretty good rotary cutter............ Review by Michael

Okay I have not had this too long but I can give my impressions up front after puttind this cutter through the ringer on a tough 3-4 acre cut of heavy brush and wild grass. Not too difficult to hook up but it is really easy with two people for sure. I did not have to cut the drive shaft to fit my New Holland Workmaster 40. So that was a plus. Just a caveat here folks...........always when engaging the PTO do so at the lowest rpm on your tractor you can if you have a electric switch PTO like me. It will certainly weaken the shear bolt if you don't or snap it. If you have a clutch engaged PTO to be able to feather it then you won't have to worry so much. Now back to the cutter. It worked flawlessly. If you hit something solid it will shear the shear bolt to protect the gear box no questions asked. But that is what it is suppose to do. I would suggest keeping a good supply of shear bolts on hand. The flex system works to a degree but if you do go from a relatively flat section to a incline if you don't have a draft system the front of the cutter will dig in the ground. I don't have a draft control so when I approach a incline I have to manually draft. The only other thing I would suggest purchasing is the chain protector for keeping any object from flying toward the tractor or The other issue I wish KK would have addressed is the sides of the cutter are thin in my opinion in regards to objects being hurled. It will leave some good dents in your cutter for sure. If KK would have only double plated the sides alone this would have been great to eliminate this. You can go behind them and do this if you have a welder and are handy. I do not have one so I am out of luck. Buy some gear box oil/grease too to keep on hand. Mine was a tad low upon arrival. The cutter did a great job overall with a few little issues of design and structure. I am sure if KK reads these reviews they will make provisions to improve it hopefully. Overall I am happy and if I get a good 7-10 years medium use from it I will have considered it a win. I would have given it 5 stars on quality if the sides had been reinforced but subtracted for an obvious oversight. Also value since the system needs the chain in my opinion and that is another $150 to the cost!!!! And that is only for the side toward the tractor. I think the smaller chain toward the wheel is another $100 almost. Those things should be std. in my book.
