  • Re-shiv of Great Dane Super Surfer

    I realizethat this might be a litle dorky, but I have a Grea Dane Super Surfer 61 and I want more blade speed out of it. I'm thinking about re-shiving it to get maybe 10-15% more blade speed at a given RPM. Anyone ever try this? Seems like it could be the ticket

    Not sure, may loose some torque, but I like the idea...

    Would you change the drive sheave, or each blade sheave?

      I was thinking the drive sheave, that way if it sucks, it will be easy to go back. I've got a bunch of woody, stout weeds that grow in my field and it seems like a faster blade would be the trick for them. Its rare that I feel like the engine is really working hard, so it seems like it would work. I will report back after I've done it

        19000 feet per second. Any faster than that and you wont be coming back here to tell us how you exceeded the speed of sound.

        NOT recommended.

        This is a great chance to cause serious injury and death is more likely. If you have to ask this question here- you aint got the chops to THINK about attempting it.

        Not being a dick or even trying to. SERIOUSLY not a DIY....

        I have done this, but will not share.
