 Front Wheels for Bushhog

My 5' bushhog does a pretty good job of cutting the pasture, but my wife likes it cut pretty short. This puts the skids on the ground fairly often. On straight runs this doesn't seem to be a problem, but when turning it sometimes diggs in. Does anyone know where I could find some wheels to keep the front of the skids slightly off the ground? Like anti-scalp rollers but bigger and on casters like a finish mower.

JParker; My Land Pride rear mount finish mower has caster wheels front and back, they do a good job of keeping the mower form scalping. Check with the maker of your bushog, perhaps a wheel kit is availabel. Caster type wheels are a must to make it work properly. If not available it would'nt be much of a job to fabricate a front wheel attachment if there is room between your tractor and the front of the mower, be sure to check for clearance when the mower is lifted to it's max on the 3pt. If you use air filled tires be sure to put tubes in them otherwise they just roll off the rim when you lower the mower if they are turned sideways (been there done that). Check the Land Pride website for pictures and I also think the tire sizes are listed. Hope this helps. Frank.

Northern tool has a pretty good selection of caster type wheels of all sizes and types. You could probably attach them relatively easily. I would make the mounts height adjustable.

Agri-Supply has a nice selection of wheels/brackets available as well. Funny you mentioned this, as I was going to do the same thing to my 5' Woods brush hog. Decided to buy a Woods 7' RFM instead. Glad I did...sure cuts down on the mowing time!

Looks like a good excuse to head for Agri-Supply. Ours is not near me, but I like going there for ideas & toys er... tools for the tractor.

I haven't added welding to my list of skills yet, so something with pre-made brackets is best.

I still think bush hog was better choice than FM because I usually can't cut very often and grass / weeds get 12 - 24" between cuttings. I don't think a FM would like that.

JParker-
Get out that old stick welder and get practicing! You'll be an old farmer in no time

As for the RFM.. mine will take all you can feed it up to about a foot high but I thought when you said "the wife likes it cut short" that you meant at all times, not just after cutting.

JParker; Seems like there's nothing like a good excuse to run to TSC or Fleet Farm. Somehow the Mrs. never seems to understand my cravings, but then again I'd rather take five minutes in the ring with the former Minnesota Governor than go to a mall. It's off to the lake for a few days, have a great 4th.. Frank.

She would like a finish mower, and to have it cut weekly or more often. We don't live on the property yet, so I don't want all my time just cutting the pasture, so it gets a little grow time.

I think I found another source for the problem. Apparently my 3 point is leaking down. I noticed it while the cutter was attached, and I was doing a wash down. In about 15 minutes, it went from 3" above ground to resting on ground. I started the engine and repeated the test. Same result. Tractor is in for its 50 hour right now and they found a scored valve they are replacing. Hopefully that will solve my problems.

JParker, why not cut your pasture the same way farmers plow, then you don't have to turn with the mower down. Cut a swath wide enough to turn around in at each end of the pasture, then just cut back & forth between the two areas of 'headlands'. Lift the 3pth a little to turn then set it back into the stopper to go back to cutting.

This also prevents those annoying little tufts of uncut grass in the corners and leaves a neater looking finish.

Best of luck.

I kind of do part of what you suggested (I think). I usually ring the pasture a few times then start carving out long thin rectangles to cut, and only cut the long sides. This makes the turns more gentle, but the cutter still tries to dig in. Now I think this is primarily related to 3pth leaking down.

I don't think I can easily "Lift the 3pth a little to turn then set it back into the stopper...". The B7800 doesn't have a position control on the 3pth. Thats one pretty good goof I think I made and why I'm telling anyone that asks to pay the difference for the 2910.

Wish I found this site before I ordered the tractor, not while I was waiting for it. One day I may attempt a modification or tractor swap.
