Pull behind mowers.
« on: April 30, 2020, 01:00:43 PM »
It's time to put another check beside the list of things the quad can do.  This has been part of the plan all along...  Looking at this cuz it's on sale.  Not cheap but seems pretty nice.  Anyone ever use one of these?  How about other Swisher stuff?

No personal use, but a neighbor at the olde place had a Swisher that he offset-towed behind his lawn tractor.  I don't recall him ever complaining about it.  It would have been about 16 or so years old (at least) the last time I saw it being used.

Just saved you $350 

I have no experience with swisher but was looking at their finish mowers when we bought our property. My research looked like they were good equipment. Love a rough cut mower. I have a 5' bush hog for the back of the sport touring tractor. I just giggle as i back over a 3" tree and hear it going bop,bop, bop underneath  :bigsmile:

Yeah, Kim already found that.  This one is rated for 3" as well.  Hope to not have to cut anything that size as I don't have much brush per se.  Just a lot of potentially tall weedy grassy bits.  This will be overkill but I also have so much rock that I want something that can withstand a bit of a beating.  Since it has something called a stump jumper, I'm guessing it's designed tough.  That savings will pay for the additional warranty taking it up to a three years.

I don't have one, but I want one.  I've seen used ones for sale on Facebook Market Place for $500.
