    Default Batwing Mowers.

    While I enjoy my "Tractor Therapy" as much as the next guy, 9 hours of mowing in one weekend is a bit much.

    I have a JD 2355 and a Bush Hog 10' (offset) rotary cutter. We also have a kubota L5740 that has a 72" Landpride rotary cutter.

    I'm considering one of the Landpride batwing mowers, RC 3615 or RC 6615 as I expect it would speed things up. Both list min HP of 50. The 5740 is 59 HP but shows 50 HP on the PTO. I don't know if the specifications for the cutter are referring to the engine or PTO HP but it should work, either way.

    Does anyone here have either mower and care to comment.

    Thanks, in advance.

    No experience with either unit. The 6615 is much heavier duty. If you are just maintaining fields and mostly clipping grass the 3615 would be fine. I would expect the 3615 to be more expensive. I would check Bush Hog out also for comparison.
