    Default Hedge Trimmer?

    Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a 3pt mount, PTO driven, vertical hedge trimmer available? I have almost 5000 ft of bushes I would like to trim. Would be neat if I could do it with my new JD790.

    Thanks for any help.

    This may not be what youíre looking for. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    But I had one these many years ago. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    I always thought that if I ran it in the up position (canít be done) I could trim the sides of a trail back in the woods. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I'd think a brushhog type mower that highway maintenance crews use (the kind that sticks out to the side and you can tilt the deck) would work, but the ones I've seen require a big tractor. I don't know if they make smaller models or not.

    None -yet. Until then FunBuggy (EZ-Go) will have to do!

    Here's a link to Tiger Mowers . This is the kind of thing that Bowhunter was suggesting. I didn't take the time to look through it, but I would suspect that they might have tractor size requirements for their various models. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I think what you are looking for is a sickle bar mower. Here's a link to one of the manufacturers of them. Many more if you do a google search on "sickle bar mower". I've never used one, but have thought about it.

    Really cool that this sickle bar mower will cut at 90 deg. vertical position. I don't think the old ones would do that. John

    Bebster that looks like what I'm looking for. Ron H had a pic of something similar. Now if I can just get the BOSS to let me buy one.
    Thanks everyone for the help.
