I don't know what you guys are getting so freaked out about.

 

There is a shield at the rear that it pretty much dragging the ground and there isn't any debris coming out towards the operator.

 

You can see at the beginning that there was a gap between the ground and the shield, but when he adjusted the rear roller, he eliminated that gap.

 

Looks like a perfectly safe attachment to me.

 

My concern would be that the nose of the walk behind would drop, from hitting a rock or other solid object, and the flail mower raising up as I stepped forward with my sneaker clad foot.

Have not worn shorts in many years much less know what a shoe feels like but even with all the safety gaurds and such i still have scars on my legs from rotary mowers and brush mowers hitting unseen rocks, stumps or kids and dog toys.

My father taught me to be careful near the road with pto equipment

 

 

 Flying stones and debris could go into open windows of cars before AC . Even so , hitting anything by accident still causes trouble.
