I need to write down the model of this mower/shredder I have I can still see the model if the light is just right I think,, anyway wondering how many have seen or used this model, the twin blades with a stationary mounted one that runs between the two sets of swinging blades really does a heck of a job,, I normally run it with a 20-30 hp unit but I like the cab a whole lot better this time of year, plus it keeps you out of the dust and flying debris,, I was chopping up the regrowth tumble weed row along the strips here, as you can see it leaves nothing of them even walking 8 mph, just thought i would share this is the only one I have ever seen out here
cnt

It's a 25. I've seen them. Haven't used one. Tough unit, but not as rugged as the x10 or x11 series. Don't know if you will be taking down trees with it.

See video below.

Holy cow! And that's why so many old rotary cutters are beat to death, gearboxes destroyed and decks bent, warped, and a ring around the top where the blades have gotten them. Nice promotional video though.

I'm amazed the grill on that tractor got off without a dent.
The mowing down a tree part did not work out so well for the last mower I saw that tried it. Maybe if it was an IH instead of a Woods.

Mine looks to be a older built unit as mine has a different drive shaft and gear box,, that model # sounds close though if not right on the money,, the one in the vid only has one set of blades also where mine has two, I would not use it for that kind of cutting as I have no tree growth like that to control,, Neat vid thanks for sharing it

it has a shear bolt in the drive system so there is no more hp put through the gear box than the shear bolt allows,, and then I am not trying to cut trees with it like in the vid lol

Hutterites came along last summer with a shredder cleaning up the field edge. Across from my drive way is a larger tree. Operator decided to back up to the tree and cut the tall grass...nobody told him there was a rock pile there. Gearbox exploded and parts laying around after he limped home.

I have a model 5 foot model 311 pull type that looks quite similar. Works real well and is in quite nice shape.

I have a similar IH cutter that I haven’t used in years. My blades are fixed, not free on the end. It has shear bolts. I have cut a lot of trees off with it. If the tractor will push em down, it’ll cut em off. I’ve even backed it up on bigger trees and let it down to cut them off. Maybe I oughta clean it up and try to sell it.

Didn't notice it before, but the axle clamps, axle & gear box are the same as what is on my hay conditioner. Interesting. Didn't think that box would take that much of a beating.

I have one exactly like yours, but not in near as good a shape. No idea what model it is. There's no sign of markings left. I have mowed down some trees with it. Maybe why it's not in so good shape but it keeps going
