Not sure what trouble with let ricks and knive it just ate guards is?

The newest razor bar disc mower is second to none, and the WR series power units have been good machines. There were a few problems when they first came out but the uodates have made them run great.

Agco has just introduced a 5300 series draper head, it has dual sickle drive now. Don't know much about it as of now but it sound like it will be a good head.
