Road with my dad when he cut acre after acre with one of those. He had his on a WD45. Same PTO with no shield. Everything would go good until the pitman arm would break. He would cut a new one out of a piece of oak. In the end it got bad about jerking the sickle heads off. That thing could really cut though.
