    Happy enough with it as you say follows the ground really well . Wouldnt be the best for cutting really lodged grass . Paint quality was never a kuhn strong point . Only thing thats given us bother on it is the threaded rods with the spring at there base that set the tension on the torsion bar . Have broken the one on the gearbox side twice . A pain to change and expensive .

    We'd have to cut down an awful lot of bushes first to cover that off :laugh:

    It has only broken when I’m on the mower :rolleyes2: always in the field. No particular reason level field . We`re blaming it on the boucing at speed on rough raods aint helping them . Your kind of beat when it breaks as the mower drops almost completely on that side . Now you can still work it alright but floating over the ground is gone . The 2 times it broke in work . It broke in the same spot snaps clean off just above the nut under the spring . Was able to get a nut threaded back on to broken piece so could keep mowing albeit with no spring .

    Not much actually new. Was a scorcher if a day. Not a massive crowd either as I think most are getting on with their own work

    Very true. And by rolling they mean some young lad bombing up and down the field with the window closed and the tunes blaring.
