 compare finish mowers Bush Hog New Holland

Hello. 1st posting. I am considering a New Holland 72" 930B mower, used, in beautiful shape, for $1100; or a Bosh Hog RDTH-72, new, for $2000. NH is side discharge; Bush Hog is rear discharge. I'm a homeowner who needs to mow 5+ acres of "fields" and a 3/4 acre lawn. Use a Ford 2000 tractor (about 32 hp). Fields get high w/brambles. My rotary mower is finally shot. Couldn't use it on lawn, anyway, and it scalped hell out of the hilly fields. I need to tame this mowing, and don't mind mowing often. But I want it to look like it was worth the effort. Can I make a finish mower work for my purposes?

I like the 2-yr warranty on the bush Hog, and the price on the essentially new New Holland. Don't know about side vs. rear discharge. These two decks are what's easily available to me here and now. Need to make a quick decision. Wife's getting pissed about mowing, in-laws coming w/kids, and the grass is getting HIGH. Any help MOST appreciated.

You have to be a little more mindful when going around objects with a side discharge because of the deflector. Other than that I would say either one should suit you well. I would suggest however that if your field is really over grown I would rent a brush cutter and get it knocked down before you hit with a finish mower.

Thanks for the quick reply. I think I will have to rent a rotary cutter to get this proccess going again. Things are about waist-high-plus out there. Do the real world prices I mention ($1100 used; $2000 new) seem reasonable? I'm in Northern Virginia-suburban Washington, DC, and the price of everything is inflated beyond reason here. A cup of coffee costs $2.00.

BTW, that tractor/excavator/mower combo is really cool. When my ship comes in . . . .

sounds like you need a front mounted flail mower, runs off your rear pto or hydraulics.
very trick but pricy
no wind rows and it will handle any thing !!!!!!

Can't afford more than $1100-$2000, and need the front blade on my tractor. Current plan: rent a rotary cutter to get started; buy and mount the finishing deck; identify a skilled welder-fabricator to repair the disassembled parts of my present, broken, 5' rotary cutter (over however many months) so I'll have both machines on hand. Leaning toward used New Holland because of cost. All advice very welcome!

I do believe the new Holland will suit you well.

WELCOME! If you can afford a 2K bush hog, Why not buy that New Holland AND then go get you a $700 King kutter rotary cutter. Thats still less than 1 bush hog. Now you have your cake and can eat too (and still save bucks!)

I have the 930B, I bought it used for 600 but it was not like new, not torn up a lot, but left out and roughed up a bit. The side discharge works fine, deflector is gone so no worry about that. Overall it is not to high a quailty. The gear box seal is bad and all oil ran out. It runs a belt so it is not like it took a lot of shock like a bush hog would. Many welds have cracked too. The properly tentioned single belt is not strong enough for the rated HP and instead of bogging a bit, it just slips and burns.

That's interesting. Believe I've seen one of these in operation just recently. It's probably out of my price range, but just for yucks: what are the decent, lower-priced units to look at? Is it true that the knives need minimal sharpening? What happens if I hit a 3 inch stick or other obstruction?
Thanks-
