On the plus side we did get a new tractor may have been to much for the bushhog.

I'm making a joke. I did it, just said our neighbor did. πŸ˜…

I'm with you on loan or borrow equipment. My luck I break it.

Is that a ghost driving the tractor Shell? If it is you, you have a certain aura about you. The bush hog looks fairly light duty. Should be pretty easy to weld up and may be able to beef it up a bit. They cop a bit of stress around the pins there if you get it hooked on something like an old tree stump or rock.

Looks like a pretty easy fix. Slap a brace on and get back to work. That is a light duty hog so treat it that way and it will hold up better.

Naw work in chemical plants. 😝

I know ya'll are right. I get a little wild get confused with the bushhog and a bulldozer.

I was clearing a small area that had grew up and I think it did get caught on and old tree limb. Broke bushhog but it sure looks better. My old man weld it a few times before. 😬 that's another story for another time.

Did you note that it was a Land Pride? Those are usually very good units. Which model is it? The RCR 15 series -- like the 1548 or the 1560 -- are very solid. Sorry you had bad luck with yours.

Also if you are running a solid top link, take it off and replace it with a piece of heavy chain that's the same length.

This let's the mover pivot on the lift arms, and keeps some stress off of the tail wheel and lift pins.

Sometimes if you come through a deep ditch with a solid top link, the 3pt runs out of lift and something has to give. Usually those hitch pins.

That is a lawnhog, not a bushhog. Match the equipment with the work and all is fine.

Looks like you have made quite a few steps forward from moving hay on a car hood sled.

We all go through a growing period. When I was hauling 4ft bales on a 12 ft trailer with my S-10, I was an outcast in the community. Now I haul 8 4x5s or 6s, and all the bto's wave, I just givem the finger. Didn't have time for me then, I aint got time for you now.
