This only took me around 8 hrs to build. I am lucky to have a plasma cutter available to use which cuts down on grinding time. Also makes for a perfect striaght cut. This blade has been cut right down the middle long ways to make it that short and to use for adding wings on. I plan on makeing a get up like the factory blades with a handle to unlock the blade from the top side. Just got excited this far along to share my project with someone else.
That's okay! It started the old juices flowing through the think tank and I'll be doing one later this Spring. Probably only 4' wide. Got most of the plans stored in the head, hope I don't forget where!
