Do you have anything in mind? You have a light chassis and to go to far maybe even four foot on a four foot cutter you would need additional counter balance.

Flail mower head is what I want that will handle limbs and light brush. I know the tractor is light and mower must be also. Not expecting a long reach either.

Thank you

I believe I have seen their brochure before. Aren't they made in Ohio? I had forgotten them. I think they even had a string trimmer head!

 Best Boom Mower for Kubota B2710 Tractor

Bomford, a company long known for it's boom-mounted mowers, which are BTW, top-drawer stuff, make the Micro-Mower. See the link below.

However, before you get all excited about them, give your piggy-bank a good shake and check it's weight.

Spendy is a VAST understatement with this type of stuff.

We looked at a mid-sized unit a few years back. It was even the small end of the mid-sized category. The mower was going to cost MORE than the 80hp tractor (with cab & A/C) it was to be mounted on.

It is easy however to build a small boom mower for VERY little money if you're a bit handy. We ended up building our own unit.

Best of luck.

The piggy bank is what I thought the problem with Bomford units was. I was on their web site when your message hit. I have considered building my own but was stuck on the cutter itself. It would have to be hyd. driven and I could not find a hyd driven flail mower and to put a hyd motor on a pto unit looked like some what of a rpm challange. Any advice on your experience would be appreciated.

 Best Boom Mower for Kubota B2710 Tractor

Ibrown, I've never built a boom mower but have allways dreamed of one too. I've looked at the one the county uses, it must be a high dollar machine with all the hydraulics to control the boom plus the hydraulic systerm to run the cutter, it's also on a pretty good sized tractor with lots of wheel weights on the oposite side of the cutter. I've backed off now to dreaming of a less complicated, lighter 3pt. mounted frame and 90 degree gear box to mount a conventional 3pt. rotary cutter that would produce a full cut just outside of the rear tractor wheel track. My thought is that I could mow aprox. 5 ft. of the ditch bank from the road and if the slope is longer mow the rest from the ditch bottom. Just another one of my dreams, some work, some don't. Any comments are welcome. Frank.

As long as you are contant on leaving the mower running on caster wheels, although they could be hyd. height-adjustable on the fly, it would be very easy to put a gas engine on top of a regular bush-hog and use a 6:1 belt & pulley reduction to drive the gearbox at about 600 rpm. Then all you need is an offset hitch to pull it from.

A self powered boom mower is also relatively easy, again just mount a vertical shaft gas engine, no reduction required, directly on top of an old riding mower deck, add caster wheels and a small boom to move it.

Best of luck.
