Wow, I've never seen anything like that.  It looks like an evil torture device.  But it sure looks like it did the trick in the field.  I liked the Roto-ette too.  Thanks for sharing those videos.

Works really well in that field!  Looks pretty dangerous to use without any sort of guard on it.

Looks like it would be good for brush.

The cones help to windrow whatever you are cutting.  Where the alfalfa was much taller than the cones, I had problems with the alfalfa jamming up and stopping the blades.  

 

I have a buck saw attachment like the photo that I will set up closer to Rough & Tumble time and do a video.  It is still wired together as it was when shipped to the dealer.
