 DR Brush Mower

Anybody have a DR brush Mower? I'm thinking of buying one because I need to cut brush on a slope and mt tractor is too top heavy for the job. Any comments on its operation?

 DR Brush Mower

I've never used the DR Brush mower myself, but recently moved to the town where they are made, and have a few friends who own one. They love it! Easy to operate, and works as advertised. It will take down more than just weeds... handles small saplings as well (I don't know what the upper limit is, but one guy has taken down some 1" saplings).

Kevin, I do not own one but have rented and used one. You won't be dissapointed, they work excellant. I did find that with both drive wheels engaged (4 wheel drive so to speak ) you will want to hang on to it for it will go places you can't follow, uphill, downhill or staight out through the woods it is a mowing machine. The Billygoat company makes one called the Outback, which is designed very similar, see enclosed link, although I would be a little concerned about the strength and durability of there handle bar setup.

 DR Brush Mower

Kevin... I own a dr field and brush mower. I've had it for about 2 years and find it to be a real blessing. I bought the 15 hp model mostly because of the pumped oil system that works on hills. It is very easy to use, cuts saplings up to one inch in diameter and can get into tight spaces. With it, I doubt I'll buy a mower for my tractor. Dave

 DR Brush Mower

I rented one once to cut hillsides that had over grown. My hillbilly days in Kentucky. It worked quite well but got sticks jammed once in a while.
I mowed the same ground with my tractor and bush hog. Much easier, but I had 4 wheel drive. I am not sure I would have taked the brush trimmer anywhere I would not take the tractor. In fact I thought it was more dangerous with the trimmer.

Kevin, I had a chance to watch the video I was sent on the Billygoat Outback and I have to say that if I were in the market for such a machine I would have to give it a serious look. The video shows it to be quite a rugged mower with a well thought out design, they even show a guy mowing over a cement block with nothing but small chunks of concrete left in it's path. I am sure the blades were consideribly duller. The handle bar design appears to be well reinforced but only down low, no supports and braces up high were the handles would take a lot of twisting and abuse, and as I recall I even had to tighten the handlebars on the DR when I rented it because they were loose. The Outback with the 11 HP Honda electric start engine was listed at $2330 Mark

 DR Brush Mower

I own a Billy Goat and haven't had any problems with it. My only complaint is that it only mows a 2' swath. One of the earlier posts is right about these types of machines pulling and pushing you around. My Billy Goat doesn't have a drive wheel differential lock and so if one wheel gets stuck and spins, the machine doesn't move forward. I don't use mine much anymore since I got my TC29--the 5' hog is much more efficient. Billy only comes out every month or two to munch on the grass between the christmas tree plantation. Had I given that much though up front, I would have planted the trees 6-7' apart instead of 5' apart and mowed in between using the 5' hog.

 DR Brush Mower

It's me again (Kevin). Thanks for all the replies. I am thinking about buying the DR or something similar to handle small sapling growth and grass on steep hillsides. I own a John Deere 4100 with a brush mower but I haven't been able to get over the "I'm about to tip over" feeling when I use it on slopes. I'm not really sure how steep of a slope I can use the tractor on but I know I can get out of the way of a brush mower if it tips.
Are there any good sources for finding used DR (or similar) mowers for sale?

Kevin

I've owned a Dr Mower for 5-6 years and use it on slopes that I wouldn't think of taking my Kubota B2400. It's a great machine. It's tough, runs well and starts first time. At present I've got the lawn mower deck on it just now and I use it for trimming around the yard before hitting it with the 5' mower on the tractor. You don't see many used ones for sale and I'd have my doubts about buying used after seeing how I've ill treated mine over the years. I think the Dr company themselves sell reconditioned models that they have taken back in trades or they may maintain a registry of machines for sale by owners.

You might try contacting the manufacturer Country Home Products in Vergennes, VT. They have a 30 money back Guarantee. I know a few of them do come back (not often). I'd try asking what they do with the returned ones. They can't legally sell them as new. I know a couple of locals have picked up cheap ones, but it may be the kind of thing where you have to be in the right place at the right time.
