Interesting video - thanks for posting it. You're really putting that Cub to work, plus finding some neat implements to use also.

Were you cutting in third gear, or was video sped up?

Sometimes we speed up the video to move things along... Our fields are kinda rough, so I’m sure 3rd gear would bounce me right out of the seat. Or at least break something. I usually cut in 1st at a high throttle, or second gear at a medium throttle. It all depends really on the grass, how thick it is, how tall it is, what it takes to get it to fall backwards, etc.

Oh that’s fine. Just couldn’t decide. Yeah, no way I could do it in third. That would be a wild ride. Lol

Edit: oh and by the way, love the equipment!

Excellent video. Thanks for sharing! Looks a lot less back-breaking than this method:
