Whew, I don't think my neck and shoulders would like hanging on to that when it ties into a sapling, but it sure looks like a neat piece of history. Nice find :thumbs:

All the time. there only as dangerous as the operator. The biggest trouble with them is getting it installed on the tractor. Most who have dont take them back off.

When you get it all back up and going I hope somebody can hold your camera so we can see it working :thumbs:  I'm still thinking I wouldn't want to try and hold onto it.

Cool find! The only way I could see it being safe is if that guard went all the way around the blade. :smilewink:
