Rotary hoe is good for very small weeds with shallow roots. To be efficient they must be run at high ground speed which allows it to flip the small weeds out of the soil while not causing significant damage to larger plants.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I have seen a picture of one in a manual somewhere. I believe it had a shield that went over the top to keep the dirt and rocks out of the driver. Would be a great conversation piece!

As usual, BD is right on...
The standard procedure around here was to get the Hot Rod kid who was interested in speed above all else, put him on a tractor with the M & W added gearing [stepped up the std IH first four gears by about 1.6X or so] show him where the fastest gear was that would pull the hoe, and then leave the field.
That was one place where the 'pop-pop' John Deeres had an advantge, wiht their fifth gear that was considerably faster than the IH 4th and yet had more pulling muscle than the 5th [road] gear of the IH 'H' or 'M'.
The hand clutch on the JD was something of a challenge for a boy that was raised in 'RED' tho... :lol:
Later, when the rotary hoe was mounted on a three-point, they did put shields on behind the driver. The old pull-type hoes I saw, however did not have such a shield.
One of the few advantages of growing older is that I finally realized that I haven't made ALL the stupid mistakes! Yet!
