The terrain we are using it in is rough; it's the flooded areas of Minot, ND. The weeds have been grown up to 6+ feet over the past two years. There are one-inch saplings and a hedge row on the property(s). The machine is as easy to use as a snow blower or rotary tiller. The forward and reverse levers are very comfortable to use. We have operated this piece of equipment 4-6 hours daily for the past four weeks. I like how everything is left behind ... chopped down cleanly! One thing I am impressed with: today I was operating the machine with the forward lever squeezed fully and it kept on going. Only one time in a very thick extremely wet spot did the machine stop. (We received a heavy rain last night and early this morning.)
