I like wise have had to amend that inner ledger plate holder.
I probably would have been just as far ahead to start with some flat stock, rather than starting with the NH skid, for the price of it!
I did put one of those knife-and-a-half's out on the end. It helped. My problem is I mow edges and ditches with this mower, so it's alternately a dozer, rock picker, wire cutter, brush cutter/chomper, you name it!
