Question

Bush Hogging?


I think it's called that...

Anyone know of an affordable trail cutter...something to easliy get rid of brush. I was looking into a Swisher brand...that's all I could find.

Depends if you want one to be pulled behind a tractor or ATV or a walk behind. Swisher makes both. DR makes walk behind.

The pull behind ones from swisher have a separate motor for the cutters. My FIL has one of these

Its uses a PTO from his tractor to power it.

Then of course you have the chainsaws and things like this

I too want to cut some trails this summer. I was thinking of renting something like the DR after I cleared the big stuff with the chainsaw. I may also need a backhoe due to terrain issues. I have about a mile or so to do.

Oh yes, I saw that one too. I don't know how much it is though. I am looking for the kind you walk behind and not pull. Swisher has one that retails at about $1200. I guess that is the going rate.

Greetings--

I rented a walk-behind brush mower, similar to the DR and others. It worked like a champ !! Cut through brambles, small brush and trees like I was mowing the lawn (ok ok .. kinda....). It had metal blades, not the string thingies.

Check the rental places. I had to call around to several before I found one that carried these beasts.

As much abuse as these things can take when mowing, I decided to rent one a few times, rather than tear up one I owned :-)
