I can't see the vid right now, but let me know how it works out. I'm going to do this to a mower I have, but I was thinking that the blade needs to be exposed more in order to cut small trees properly.

I'm going to be testing it soon. And i would expose more of the blade but the more of the deck you cut the weaker the mower deck frame is. So im going to leave mine the way it is.

You could brace it underneath with some flat stock steel. Just brace further back since you only need the front edge.

If you were to attach a comb type thing you might be able to get even better results. It will help separate the stuff... a little bit easier to cut instead of a big ole clump.
