 KK 48 Brush Cutter on a BX?

I thought I put this up yesterday, but I guess not.

Has anyone ever ran one of the King Kutter Bruch Cutters with their BX? (XB Series) The new property has some tall field grass to chop down and I don't want to do it with the finish mower. For that situation, is my 2230 strong enough to handle field grass and very small saplings (way less than 1"Wink yeah right?

Does any one have an opinion on these units? My KK box blade is a simple chunk of steel and works fine at that, but a brush cutter is a bit more involved. Should it have a slip clutch or is a sheer pin good enough?

Little help for the new "gentleman farmer" please.

Believe your 2230 will handle a 48 brush cutter just fine. I have a 5 ft 3 pt bush hog that I use on my L-35 (26 PTO hp) and a 6 ft pull type on a MF farm tractor. They both eat high weeds, brush, and even small sapplings with ease. Although one has a shear pin and the other a slip clutch, I perfer the slip clutch. However, make sure the clutch is set up and you look after it annually--tore up a PTO several years ago because of hitting a stump with a frozen clutch. Take it easy--your tractor will tell you when it's needs to gear down. Watch out for those stumps!

Even the XB series (supposidly made for sub-CUTs) still rubs? I was hoping to avoid that problem by going with the KK-XB unit.

Horsepower wise you should be fine, just take it slow & easy.

As for "Poor Richard" and his advice, I would be skeptical, especially after reading his profile as DRankin pointed out earlier.

Maybe a post, or an email to Art will clear it up.

Best of luck.

I agree with Murf. I think this is a guy who has been shown the door twice before.

He has very brown eyes.

Other than the attitude, the repeating of, and incorrect use of the comma gives him away.

I also recall the late night, presumably after a few cocktails, posts.

I'm not sure about the XB cutters. But the lift pins on my 6' King Kutter brush mower where to high when I got it.
Made the cutter to close to the tractor and limited my lift height.
I drilled new holes and lowered the lift pins 5"( not a big deal, only took a few minutes to drill the new holes). Works fine now.

Not exactly sure on the brush cutter, but the KK XB Series attachments fit nicely on the Sub-Compacts. They are built for the lower lift heights and hitch up nicely. They have category-1 pins with category-0 spacings, so the stretch is reduced along with a shorter top link height. I have never heard of any one drilling holes in an XB to hook up to a Sub-compact. You will need to cut the PTO shaft to fit the tractor, but other than that, should hook up nicely.
