 Need Help - Rotary Cutters

Another question since I am so new at this and the folks on this board are so helpful. Need a rotary cutter (we call them bush hogs where I was raised) to cut fields. Priminary straw and corn stakes, briars, some small brush. Will use on 53 hp pto, need 10 to 12' or so unit. Will probably buy from dealer.

Can anyone recommend a brand and suggested price range???

Seems like a 10' would be a bit large for the pto HP your producing. I would think an 8' would be about the size you would be after.

 Need Help - Rotary Cutters

I have spent many hours mowing with a IH 574 and a 10 foot bush hog mower. I believe it was around 53 pto HP, and it had no problem what so ever. I mowed cow pastures with dense thick growth up to 2' and corn stubble. .

Brush is often easier than thick grass as the momentum easily lops off the trees and there isn't a lot of volume. the corn stubble was as if it wasn't even there. Rhino, Bush hog, Land Pride, JD, all good machines. I like to use 5 HP per foot of mower as a general rule of thumb for minimums
