I am looking for a good rotary cutter (5' or 6'). Do all brands have stump jumpers? Any good sites on the web? I have seen Bush Hog page and I've heard that it is a good cutter.

I can only comment on my 5 foot Rhino (SE5) cutter. It has been excellent so far. I have mowed some very thick, tall weeds and saplings. I have run over at least 200 trees an inch or so in diameter. It mows prettier than I thought a "brush cutter" would cut. Seems very well made and very durable. I'm using a B2710 to operate it. I recommend this cutter.

I use a Woods M5 "Dixie Cutter. This is your basic 5' bush hog although the Woodsis quite a bit heavier built than the less expensive brands. I got mine used forabout the new price of the cheaper ones....about $500. I wouldn't buy a brushhog used unless it was one of these heavy duty types. And I was reluctant to buy this one, but it has worked out ok.except for a leaky seal in the verticalshaft which I need to replace. Till now I've just been watching the gear oil level.Mine does not have a stump jumper but I don't think it would help in my mowingwhich is mostly pasture and field. When I shear the shear bolt it is usually arock or a chunk of wood sucked up or else mowing the dirt off of a gopher hole.Hate those gopher holes..... My only criteria was that the gear box have lots of lateral support and thatthe three point attaching points have a swinging parallelogram type of mountso that the mower raises and lowers on the horizontal plane, instead of swingingthrough an arc. The M5 has these features. As much as I have used it, I wish Ihad bought a new one. Roger Land lowers level

Can you tell me more about the parallelogram link and how it differs from the usual type of three point?

The entire three point attachment can pivot forward around the lower hitch pins.So as the mower is lifted, the upper link can move forward. The continuation ofthe upper link attachment point continues rearward to about 2/3 the length of themower, and is terminated in a pivoted raised mount about 6" above the mowerbody. It is not a true parallelogram, because the sides are unequal. I shouldhave called it a pivoting mount....but I couldn't think of how to describe it! Because it is not a true parallelogram, the self-leveling feature only worksin a small proportion of the hitch's total rotation. But this is sufficient formowing. I suspect that any mower that has a three point attachment where the upperlink is free to pivot and swing frontwards and rear a few inches would work justas well.. Roger L.

No I haven't tried to sharpen them yet, as it only has 25 or 30 hours on it.

Thanks Roger, I now understand. Thats why my Hico cutter has a slot for the top link attachment. It allows about a three inch slide back and forth. I suspect that is also why some cutters have a pivoting u-shaped link between the top of the mower and the toplink arm. Happy mowing.

For what its worth, a friend of mine once told me that cutter blades worked better if dull. He said the shattering effect on sapling retarded regrowth. I sharped mine once after I hit a pipe and took some chunks out, but they dulled right down very quickly. I must admit that in spite of this I am tempted periodically to yank them out and grind them, but I have resisted so far and they still cut great. Happy mowing.
