MacGyver for sure!.. I've had similar fixes.

What the heck are you cutting that you've been breaking so many shear pins?

I think the best people to come up with a solution to a problem using what they have readily available has to be someone on a Navy ship or a farmer! Being creative will keep you young skyhightree1. Nice job.

Or you could just buy a good heavy duty mower, like a Brown, Rhino, or a Bushwacker.

Those all still have slip clutches or shear bolts and will slip/shear if you get into heavy enough material... ha

I have heavy duty one. The grade pins are the problem.

That's my way of thinking to, if the tractor will go over it, the bush hog [email protected] well better![/quote]

Yep.. sorriest bushhog I had was a howse came with a tractor pacakage I bought if you bump something it bends in the whole side.
