I have hinted on social media that we’ve been having some significant issues with the DR Bush Hog. And before winter sets in, I am inclined to film a, “video review” of it.
But I wanted to share this tidbit first.
After a few weeks of waiting for the deck to be fixed (again), I decided to do a test-cut in the main hayfield that readers see around the pistol pit. No big deal. It’s flat. Debris free. Easy-peasy, right?
Well I’m about 40 minutes in and I drive up on a very dark black spot in the cut grass. At first I think it’s a dead animal? Maybe some kind of trash or foreign object? And when I get really close, to my absolute and complete horror! It’s the battery to the very bush hog I am pulling!
In a millisecond of panic I actually concentrate on the sounds around me? Is the bush hog even running!?!?
Battery fell out and on to an already cut path. So I didn’t hit it.
Trust me. This thing has been a nightmare. And while I take responsibility for breaking it some of the time. The fact even a simple part like a screw or switch takes a minimum 3 weeks to get from DR?
Keeping the range cut this year has been an unmitigated disaster.
I bet this thing has been down for service 9-10 weeks since purchased new in the Spring. And that is NO WHERE near an exaggeration. If anything, that estimate is charitable.
More to come.
