If the whole unit is this knackered, the gearbox can't be much better.

It would be nice if the above listed 5' model could be bought
with an upgrade of the 75 hp gearbox (and 2" spline stumpjumper)

Not upgrading drive shaft, steel plate etc. just the gearbox, as they
are all made in china these days, would pay to over build.

Slip clutch beats that shear pin setup any day.

True, but that clutch set-up don't come cheap.
Note the OP's brush hog is the "economy model"

Cheap being the word here eh ?

You are 110% correct on that I informed him he should install a slip clutch
due to several reasons..... city boy trying to be a farmer/rancher of sorts
so there is not very much working knowledge but he is learning and I try to advise him on the ins and outs do's and do not's.... and just because it has something commonly called a stump jumper does not mean that 20" diameter stump sticking out of the ground 12" mean you can just glide over it....

So if anything will help with the unseen small stuff that should never go under a operating shredder the slip clutch will help save it to a certain extent but once I have this thing done it's up to him to keep it up and maintained properly

I just realized this is someone else mower... With that tidbit, scrap it!

I would not want the liability.

Oh god.....
I hauled a brand new brush hog (6 months old or so, no dents)
for an older guy, he put it on an old "M".
With tricycle steering, he spun around and hit things with it....allot.

Being a retired college 'fessor, you couldn't tell him anything.

He then bought a tiny Lamborghini orchard crawler with 3-point
and put it on that.....it was so mangled up in very short time.
Go thru a ditch and up the other side....the poor brush hog
would get smashed down into the ground hard.

The top link was mangled, the drive train got mangled, the tail wheel....
Smeared and bent to utter junk.

We patched it up a few times.....
