    Checking the alignment as in the photo only shows where the blade ends up after the cut has been made. Unfortunately, it would seem that the blade isn't tracking at a perfect 90 degrees, only ending...

    I thought I would add to the confusion the term "Limited Category 1 and Quick-hitch compatible"
    Which (I think) means, I'm really a CAT 0 but I'm being sold as a CAT 1.

    I personally would prefer...

    That's exactly my point.
    Small tractors have their place just as much as large ones but they should not share the same category of attachments.
    Within the same category, you can have an implement...

    That's like saying a we need small CAT 1 (CAT 1-A for sub-compacts) and a Large CAT 1(CAT 1-B for compacts)
    It kind of makes the system that already exists pointless by having such a broad spectrum...

    I have the previous version, a 6 1/2" saw. They work great.
    I've had mine for 15 years so I'm not sure if that's a good price but the tool is good.

    Personally, I think it's because CAT 1 is right there in between home owner and professional.
    You can certainly get every attachment you need in CAT 1 in a QH comparable fit. But there are just as...

    I have telescopic links on the lifting arms and they really help with some stubborn attachments and less than level ground.

    We don't disagree at all.
    The short answer is that not everything is quick-hitch compatible, although I wish it was.
    If anyone is considering getting one, you need to know not everything will fit...

    With respect, this is just not as clear cut as you make it sound.
    The term "standard" is interpreted rather loosely from one manufacturer to another.

    Yes they add about 2 inches or so to the length of the lifting arms, which is not a big issue in most cases.

    I use primarily Japanese planes, I tend to put them down on the sole. One reason is that laying on their side, unlike western planes, they are more unstable and likely to fall over.

    I don't think a BOB is snake oil or absolutely necessary to complete a bowl.

    IMO, I think the constant tensioning and de-tensioning are worse for the blade (metal fatigue) than leaving pressure on the tires.
