Yes we bought it off a construction company. They didn't use it a hole bunch and then quit. I used it to work up some low spots that werent drained properly and the willows were taking over. Worked really well. No broken blades and any sticks left over got chopped up. It was used to break up some old hay land to. Worked well for that also.what did you use it for? Primary breaking after brushing? I thought those were mostly for road builders? I use a regular Wishek 842NT for that job, and I do break a few blades and scrapers.
