 LX-6 Capabilities

I have a 4710 with an LX-6 brush cutter. Recently I purchased 80 acres of CRP ground which needed a good deal of clearing. There were about 10-12 acres of saplings that needed to be cleared by August for the ground to stay compliant for the CRP contracts. Most of the trees in this area were in the 1-1.5 inch in diameter range with some as large as 3 inches in diameter. I was sceptical that the LX-6 would handle the job. After talking to my dealer about this, he told me that the main difference between the LX-6 and the MX-6 was the fact that the MX-6 has a double deck system where the LX-6 has a single deck. He told me I might put a few dents in the LX-6 but it should handle the task at hand. He did advise me to stay away from the largest trees (anything over about 2-2.5 inches in diameter).

I have now completed the clearing and he was correct. I have a couple of dents in the decking where some of the larger trees hit but overall the LX-6 worked like an animal. I now have about 1/2 acre of the largest stuff that I will have shredded by a guy with much larger equipment.

I don't think I would want to make this kind of work a steady diet for my rig but don't underestimate the capabilities of the LX series of mowers. My LX-6 paid for itself almost twice on this job alone and still runs like a champ. Heck, I might even treat it to a blade sharpening.
