    That thing is used for car parks and all those silly little roundabouts as the suburbs get sillier. NOW to think that we/I used to use 12E's 12 G's 140's to do the same thing makes me wonder now..... LOL :D

    That back blade looks about as productive as using a garden rake to hunt tree squirrels.

    I seen a near new roto blade working last fall in Charlotte,N.C. on a freeway repair/resurfacing job. As I slowly drove by in the manditory traffic jam it looked like they were roto-milling the asphalt shoulder with it.

    Yes thats true... the blade belongs to the front, so the driver has better view to the front blade.

    When someone has photos from roto blade in working, I'm happy when you post it :)

    We do use it in tight places where a grader would struggle llike car parks and it also goes on full auto
