used the cutter today,
worked great, after about 1 hr, I stopped and felt of the gear box, it was warm
but, it was hot today, so I was warm too.
sure was wet and muddy down along those ditch banks. Heavy weeds and grass due to all the wet weather we have had this spring and summer.
will check the oil level again in the morning and be sure no leakage, but it appears to be working fine.
