    Woodbeef & gordon -
    Thank you both for the pic & contact - it does indeed look like I could use one of these since removing brush is what I'm all about right now. I'll have to look around and see if I can't find a source a lil' closer to Texas though.

    Wow! That's one beefy-looking beast! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    For the price tag, though, I'd be inclined to add it to my "welding projects" list, rather than my shopping list. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Just think of all the welding practice you'd get from building that puppy!

    I guess the V-tooth design makes it grab the brush better for yanking them out of the ground, but I wonder if the ol' bucket rake ($600) wouldn't be more versatile otherwise.

    Just to be ignorant here, since the Brush Brute works like a bunch of claw hammers, wouldn't you have to get off the tractor and clear the blades manually after each pull? Just wonderin' ...

    This was in a prior post and someone who actually used one said all you do is drive to where you want to dump the slash, put the bucket down and back up - cleans itself.

    No problems with clean-off as stated just lower the boom,and back up. It actually works better if you leave it level all of the time,for both pulling,and cleaning off. As for building one yourself I do not think you'll figure it out before you spend more than it's worth! I know a few talented welders that have tried unsuccessfully!!The design has both a Canadian and US pattent on it.The bucket rake is not even close to being in the same strength league as the Brush Brute!!!

    Woodbeef,
    What size tractor are you working the Brute with?
    I still must cough up for a tractor. And might not get one with FEL capabilities because I'll go for a used one, as much as I hate to pay those prices for 25 year old equipment.

    Having only seen the picture, I agree that building one would be a chore. Probably requiring a commercial shop to cut and shape the steel and one fine welder and machine to put it together.

    Having lived in N Florida area, I know the stuff you are up against. It sure can be thick and tuff. I think BillC had the right solution. Get one of the locals with a bigger tractor and heavy Bush Hog to do your first cutting. After things are down, it shouldn't be hard to keep it down with a smaller tractor and lighter Bush Hog. I think in the long run, you would be happier spending the extra money on a smaller tractor with FEL than a 50 hp with heavy cutter. Guess I don't have to tell you a good AC for the house is a must.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks to all you guys that answered my post. I have learned a good bit from your responses.

    Actually, the proper way to say this down here is, "Thanks to all o'ya'll."
