Works after adjustments, 16. August 2011
Entshuldigen, mein Deutsch ist slecht.
I bought this product because it was the cheapest I knew.
I had to adjust the cutter blade guides, before the bar started to move freely.
The main transmission belt from the engine was too long and it slipped continuously. I had to expand the screw holes to get it tightened.
The composite connecting rod broke quite soon when the blade bar met a 1,5 cm tree.
I repaired it with a 20 x 3 mm aluminium belt around the whole composite rod, fixed with screws and glue, and now it does not brake any more.
The belt for the cutting unit jumped off several times. I made better guides. Now it will not jump away.
After these DIY modifications my cutter works now well and exceeds my expectation of in which conditions it can be used.
My land is uneven, rough and has small stones, but they have not caused problem. The machine cuts both tall and short hey.
I noticed that I need not use full gas always. In difficult conditions I use half gas and adjust the cutter belt not too tight so it slips if the blade bar is stuck.
