 48" Rotary Cutter

I am looking to get a 48" rotary cutter for a 4115. I have looked at some at the dealer but I find each one has there merits. does anyone have input on the JD LX4 vs BH SQ480 vs Woods 48". I was told the SQ480 was not availible with a slip clutch but most other differences seam minor.

You are right, there is not a Slip clutch available for the squealer.

All three are fairly good. I don't believe any 4 ft come stock with the slip clutch any shear pins. The woods also has various levels of weight, but in general the 4ft are a light duty mower.

If you cutting is just high grass and not "knocking down 2+ inch trees", then I would get a 5' for that machine. You will be able to locate a used one cheaper than a new 4'. I personally have the SQ48' and my 2210 has absoutely no issues using it. Hence if the machine had a better stance, i.e., height, weight, etc., I would have got a 5'.

I know that sometimes it looks and feels that we would be able to do that but The mower is not just a foot wider but a foot farther away from the tractor which makes it even worse as far as leverage on the tractor.

As far as the shear pin slip clutch goes here in central NY it doesn't seem to make to much dofference as to which way they are. I see slip clutches that are frozen up as they don't get slipped enough and I see shear bolt units that don't get sheared enough and they don't work. Most times when people use there mowers on there own land or on the same land they don't really need either system. The units might miss the annual renew and will break the gfear box instead of the safety system built in do to lack of maintence.

Lubricating shear pins is part of my regular maintenance if I don't break them often enough.
