OSHA approved!

My best guess is most likely not.

Adjust height of cut by tire pressure.

Wouldn`t want to fall off the quad going down a steep hill tho...

Man-------I really like this.

Never have seen a Bush-hog with brakes before------this must be the Deluxe model!!!😂

Sorta think way back in my memory that I have seen a manufactured ground driven cutter (maybe back in '40s or early '50s???-)-------before PTOs became a popular item.

With a little refinement-------that might work better than you think (investment $$$$ sure would be low------until it went through the marketing channels).

Kind of like the old horse drawn grond driven sickle mowers with more modern appeal . I agree might need a little more refinement. Maybe brand it " The Whopper Chopper " 😀🤣

One of my first thoughts to be included in my "refinement" process.🤣

When you zoom in on the picture you can see that he has been cutting grass with it.

Probably be nice to have some sort of manual "dog clutch"---------so to knock blade out of gear for road travel.  At road speed-----that blade might be humming (sounding like an inverted helicopter).

And------further adding to Farmall Fixer's Whopper Chopper thoughts.

I can see this refinement process is gonna move that $100 sales price up significantly.😳

Sure would like to see a video of this apparatus working.

Looks like a spring steel blade. Very durable. Does it flex straight when it gets up to speed?

Farmer ingenuity just getting things done.

How many beers did it take to get this up and running?

Just read a report on Fox about a woman who took a projectile in the neck from a riding mower her husband was running. Even if the discharge chute was off that the blade would have 95% shielding. I sure wouldn't want to be anywhere near this thing while running!

All kinds of homemade stuff on Utube.

I think he has sharpened a leaf spring as the blade....
