Ok, back with another crazy idea. So I've been trying to figure out how to build an independently powered rotary cutter to tow behind the LGT145. Started to weld something up, took the spindles off an old deck I had, found an engine for it, etc, etc. Basically I'm trying to build a DR tow behind, without having to spend the 3 or $4000. But I want something that I can raise and lower off the 3pt, and was looking at aftermarket stuff and it hit me: Could a guy take a Ford tiller that's powered off the rear 145's rear PTO, modify the shaft/barrel that carry's the tines and put flail knives on it and make a flail mower? Would it spin too fast / too slow? Thoughts? Ideas? I dont have a tiller for my tractor yet but there's a guy close to me that has 3 for $75 bucks each and I got to thinking that this might work. Talk me into it or tell me I'm crazy please!
Here's a pic of the tillers I can get locally:
