Got a 9770 with 600 series flex. How fast can I cut and do a decent job?
Salesman says 5-6 mph should be no problem and to increase backshaft speed.
I thought backshaft must be at 510-530 max. What do others run at for backshaft and
how fast cutting?

520 is max recommended speed for backshaft
if you start getting above that, you can overspeed the knife and cause a major vibration

depending on stalk conditions, it will cut at those speeds
