 Buying the right machine

I am very new at this equipment. Among the reasons I'm buying a Kubota is to mow 12 acres of overgrown farmland: high weeds, brambles and the like. I am told by the dealer that the center mower will do the job, but that brambles- mulitflora roses, raspberries,and locust will damage the tires. Does anyone have experience with this problem if it is a problem.

 Buying the right machine

You should be bushogging, not mowing this. It would tear up a MMM. From your description at least. I have went through some pretty terrible stuff on my R4 tires, you should be fine. Once again, don't bush hog with a MMM or finish mower, buy a quality rotary cutter. If this property is 12 acres to cut, I would look at an L series with a 6' bush hog, or at the least a B7800 or B2910 size with a 5' bush hog depending on how often you are going to cut it. You could do it in a long day with either. Seat time is good though... I like bushogging anyway.

I agree w/ Mohican - get a rotary mower. We have a Kubota L4310 and bought an off-brand 5 ft mower for our 6 acre pasture; ours has a shear pin. I'd say get at least a dozen since the rocks tend to hide below the weeds on the first run. Subsequent mowing events will be better since you will remember or mark the boulder locations.

The industrial tires will help to deter problems with the thorns do to there thickness. You won't need an industrial duty type bush hog for mowing but one with a 1" cutting ability would work fine. You might want to look at a L3400 with a 72" cut or the 4400 with an 84" twin spindle Bush hog. I would recommend the use of check chains with the use of any bush-hog.

I tend to agree on the tractor size, dont go any smaller than the 2910. I have a 2410, and while it can drive a 5' rotory, it felt unstable, then again it was a king kutter and not really made for the B2410, a Kubota brand one at 5' would probably do quite well, but is on the fringe HP wise off the PTO on the 2410.
