 Rotary Cutter for JD 2210

I'm wanting to get 48" rotary cutter for my 2210.
It will primarily be used for occasional cutting of tall field grass, and small clearings in the woods. I have cut with, and have access to, an '8 foot Bush Hog and an old Allis D17, so I wont be needing heavy cutting capability with the smaller cutter. I think anything bigger for the 2210 will be pushing it due to limited PTO HP (17.5) and the extended length which would create a need for more weight in the front of the tractor.

Does anybody have the JD LX series rotary cutter? I believe I can get a JD LX4 or a 48" Land Pride cutter locally. I haven't priced them yet. I saw an LX4 awhile back, but have not personally seen a Land Pride RC. I'm assuming the LX4 will cost more being that it is painted green. Are the LX's worth the money? How about Land Prides? As I stated before, I need something only for light duty, but don't want to buy junk, either.

Mow, have you looked at the 44 inch cutters Corriher has? Your other option might be to check out your local TSC, Rural King, or Coop.

Only thing that I don't like about these is the crappy blade tip speed (9139 FPM) but the 4 ft. all seem to have a low blade tip speed.

Chief,

I had looked at a RC at a farm supply store awhile back. I believe it was a King (not Keen) Cutter. And, if I recall, it was too big for my machine. I'll run by there again. I have considered going through Corriher, but I've found out through past correspondence (about a box blade and core aerator) that I will get dinged pretty good on the shipping costs, as well as the logistics of unloading the unit(s) at the freight terminal.

Chief, the LX4 blade tip speed is 11,440 FPM, about 20% greater than the one from Corriher.

I've got an LX4 for my 2210--works pretty good for maintaining "open" fields. I go through about 3-4 times per year--the tallest grasses are about 6 feet high, with assorted other stuff. In low range there is minimal engine lugdown. Also cleared some good size sapling/small trees last fall and the LX4 went right through them.

b8fish,

Do you have the IMatch on your 3pt? I have read that some 2210 owners have had their PTO break because is wasn't the right length when using a 3pt implement. Did you have to cut your shaft down?

Mo--I do have the iMatch, did not cut the shaft. I have not noticed any extra length issues with the LX4 shaft (maybe the dealer cut it prior to delivery?? I'll check with them next time I'm in)Todd

a 42" brush hog is really what the 2210 can handle. The 48" models are pushing its limits on power. Shame you don't live closer to me. I got a mint 42" landpride for sale. see clasifieds.

Thanks for the heads up on the size. I'd prefer the 48", but since what I'll be using it for does not have to be done quickly or in one day, I'm sure the smaller RC will be easier on the tractor.

b8fish, the shaft problem might just be something on the earlier production 2210's. I'll talk to the dealer about it, as I don't have the iMatch.
