    Default Brush Cutting with an ATV

    To All:

    I am curious if there any rotary cutters made for ATV use. I have a RC on my tractor, but I am interesting in cutting a trail in terrain that would roll my tractor. I would appreciate any available information on makes and models. Thank you in advance. Jay

    Check out the acrease rough cuts.

    I ordered the MR55K and have used several times this summer to cut areas too steep, or otherwise inaccessable. You will need a larger ATV to pull this unit as it weighs almost 600lbs. It is heavy duty, well built, and an awesome machine. The Kohler Vtwin is very smooth too.

    You will also need 9ft of trailer length to haul this mower.

    I'm sure that the manufacturers have thought about it now, but about 10 years ago when I tried one I kept burning up the engines. Apparently on the steep hills the engines on the tow behind cutters lost oil pressure and quit picking up oil from their sump when I used them on some relatively steep hills. Again, they likely have addressed this situation, but I'd sure check to be sure. I burned up 3 of them before they just gave me my money back and told me that it wouldn't work for what I wanted to do with it.

    HF moving dolly - high torque! Dogbone multi-wrench too..wait, it split on first use.

    Good Point to consider Dargo.

    The Kohler on the acrease is rated for slope mowing. I don't have the actual specs here but I called Acrease direct to discuss this issue befor I purchased mine.
