Well I certainly appreciate all the advice on this guys. I Guess what SURE LOOKED like a Good Idea just isn't so and I am very glad I asked before going ahead and bolting them on the Bucket. Thanks very Much for the wise advice.
Gotta say, I'm really surprised that they would be so weak, As you can see they are marked FORGED FS 85 2 on one side and U KING C30 on the other side... Whatever That Means??
And they are kinda Beefy...I totally understand the Blades being weak but these Guides or Guards don't appear to be that weak
Well, Anyway, I'm sure you guys know better than me, Other than My David Bradley Sickle Mower, I have never even used one before.... .Oh well, I think probably ,I will be abandoning this "Great Idea"....although , I still might bolt them to a Flat piece of steel and make a Drag Harrow to use with my David Bradley, I think that would be somewhat useful & functional. Without any Down Pressure, perhaps they would hold up better. I think that's worth a shot.....kinda Bumed Out about this, they look so darn good on the Bucket....I realy thought I was onto something there....
I just hate Like Hell to throw these things on the Scrap Metal Pile.
