 Cuting 1-2" pines with Landpride rotary cutter

I just got done cutting a bunch of small pines with my NH1725 and Landpride rotary cutter. I would like to know if I did the right thing. Most of the trees were 2" or less although some of them may have been a little bigger. The things I noticed was a rubber smell (assume the slip clutch was slipping) and that the trees were so dense that sometimes I couldn't ride over all of them. So I tried backing the cutter over them. That did the trick. I am curious if any of this sounds way to dangerous to repeat or is this just another day in the life.

As you said, "Just another day in the life". When I do this I'm usually on a bigger tractor but I find it easier to back into the saplings with the cutter lifted and bring it down slowly. Works pretty well if you take a little bit at a time but you don't need anyone standing around real close because it can throw stuff a long way. The only drawback that I've found is that it will leave 2" high stumps that can be hell on tires if you run over one in just the wrong way.

You did not specify which Land Pride mower you have. I have a Land Pride 15-48, which is a medium duty mower rated to cut 1" I believe (don't have the manual right in front of me) brush. In reality, I think it would cut 2" pines but have not tried to. The 25 Series are the heavy duty models. I am certain that they are rated to cut 2" and maybe even bigger stuff.

I've got the RCR2560 and it certainly looks heavy duty. I was mostly concerned with burning up the slip clutch or hurting the tractor. The tractor has 27hp at the PTO (non-hydro) and it did stall out once. I must have hit something when I was backing in to some trees. Thanks for your thoughts.

Be careful backing up. I have a Landpride cutter and have backed into stumps. Bends it pretty badly. Reginald: I grow trees for a living. I have $20 four-foot pines. I also have four foot pines that I mow down. If you would like to dig I'll sell them to you for a dollar each.

An old ("experienced" ??) farmer told me that cutting 1-2" trees is "messing your nest" if you ever want to mow that ground again. "Best way to pop a tire is with a 1-2" spear". I am old and not experienced but I have found this man's advice to be always be wise. Just a thought.

Bob, I'm "old" and just a little bit "experienced". Some say that cutting 1-2" stuff with a brush hog "shatters" the little stump instead of making a smooth cut (since rotary cutter blades are not really sharp) so that it's less likely to puncture a tire the next time; claiming that cutting one off with an ax or chain saw and leaving a little stump or "stob" is more likely to puncture tires. I think there's some truth to that, but I also think, depending on the type of brush cut, that the old, experienced farmer was right. And I've seen a neighbor puncture a tire exactly that way, so I'm a little reluctant to go back over areas of small trees that have been brush hogged before, although so far I've not had a problem when I found it necessary to do. It'd be interesting to hear of others' experience with this.

 Cuting 1-2

I am a retired police chief at Augusta, Arkansas. I have about 7 acres of wooded area that has large cottonwood, cypress and elm trees widely spaced. The area between the trees was grown up with underbrush, 1 and 2 inch trees and vines. I had cut some of it with a chainsaw and then I had the rest cut with a bush hog. Now 3 years later all that were cut with the chainsaw has sprouted back. The stumps that were cut with the "hog" have all rotted away. It seems that the ragged, jagged stumps cut with the bush hog didn't sprout back, so they rotted instead.
