 48 Woods vs. Bushhog Squealer vs. King Kutter??

I'm picking up a 24 hp (18 pto) Kubota 7610 and want a rotary cutter to reclaim/maintain 2 two acre pastures at my place in VT.
I can get a King kutter from Tractor supply for $600. The Kubota dealer has BH and Woods in stock for $1,000. Any features to make the more expensive ones better? Any other considerations?
The other thing is that I will be storing it outside for lack of space in the barn. How will they hold up in the weather?

I currently have the BH Squealer 72 and am very happy with it. My dealer also sold BH and Woods, and at the time I think the only reason I ended up with BH was that was what he had in stock with the options I wanted ( flat-proof tire, slip clutch, 72"Wink yeah right. I thikn the price was very close on both. My only experience with KK was a 60" rear-mount finish mower back in the late 80's early 90's. I wasn't really impressed with it but I have no clue what their current product is like.

For non-commercial use, the KK would be fine. As far as holding up when stored outside, I think they would all suffer about the same. Lots of them have been kept outside and lasted for 20 or more years.

I've used a KK finish mower for the last 5 years and have no complaints.

Good luck,
Bill

I've got a KK 5' rotary cutter on 2003 New Holland TC33D hydrostat. I use it commercially and it will cut 3 and 4" trees with ease. 6' tall grass/weeds--no problem even in high range. As far as "quality" KK to me is entry-level, but for what I do it works fine. The only "problems" I have had is the deck sides cracked at the front and the rear wheel pivot wore out in a matter hours. I cut it off and replaced it with a cast iron, true bearing-type caster from a JD planter with a true bearing hub versus a non-bearing type wheelbarrow wheel/hub KK uses. Mine sits outside unprotected in Michigan all year (I keep it painted). The biggest thing that kills any grass cutting equipment is wet grass left under the deck (rust) and bearing failure due to loss of lubrication.

I bought a Taylor Made (off brand) similar to KK. Mine is 4'has to be 18 years old now. It origanially went on my little 20hp tractor. I still use it on my 35 hp tractor.

As EW said keep it greased and cleaned. Mine has sat out with out any cleaning the deck is beat all to pieces (cutting other peoples land) several rips in the welds and not some rust thru is starting to show.

It needs a good winter overhaul. But I only use it a couple of times a year so it keeps getting putoff.

Buy the cutter cheap abuse the crap out of it then up grade some day if you need to.

Thirteen seasons on my 5' BH Squealer. Kept outside until the barn was completed four years ago, very little negative effect on it. I bought the clutch to protect the gear box, extra hundred or so at the time. Seems I paid around eight or nine hundred at the time.

The King Kutter would be fine.
I run a King Kutter 6' brushmower. Cleared my overgrown 15 acres with it (cut down some trees/brush around the diameter of my wrist) with no problem.

I just used my KK disk. This time after plowing! It sounded like I was disking a gravel pit, had a rock lodge inbetween disks and had to hammer it out. Bounced off many rocks we did not see large enough to lift disk off ground. Absolutely NO damage!! Unbelievable! The more I use my KK equipment the more I am starting to be hooked! I own a Woods brush cutter, I am very happy with it! Although I am starting to think I paid about 400 too much and could of got a KK with a slip clutch and been just as happy. My KK equipment now included a 84" landscape rake,box blade, 6' tiller, box disk, No problems with ANY of them. IMO, Will the name products probably be built better? YES. Am I happy with ALL my KK products? YES.
You make the call? I think KK will do you fine but make sure you compare apples and apples. Gaurding and a slip clutch will add to the bare bone costs of KK!
