: OK, takes your shots! I am a rookie!! We are attempting to grow and harvest alfalfa for our horses. I have about 20 acres already planted. Cut and baled last year with pretty decent success. However, I am hoping that someone out there might be able to help me with a problem that I am having with the JD 1219 moco.
: I have managed to break that bracket that attaches the blade assembly to the pivot pin on the wobble mechanism a few times. Seems like it lasts for six to eight hours of cutting and then comes apart.
: If you have experience or if you know of someone who might give me some input, that would be appreciated.
Sounds to me like a dull blade and/or too much ground speed.
