Post Weed cutter?
Just got a new 40 hp FPR motor. The thing is a beast but is there a weed cutter that anyone would recommend. My buddy has one that is like a blade that cuts weeds wrapping around shaft. He doesn’t remember where he got it.Any recommendations?

Preston used to make them but he no longer does. Can't get them anymore.
Unless someone else wants to start...

the correct answer is that most gaytortail folks don't run through tough stuff till a pd has made a trail through it already. lol


seriously though...i'm sure you could get one designed for a gatortail, but just throwing the motor in reverse for second should throw out most things fowling the prop. it's a nice feature.
