    Default What Bush Hog would you buy?

    I am in need of a new bush hog, I have had the same one for 20 years (land pride 5') but it is small and warn out. I would like a 7' or 8' it will go on a L4310 but I am hung up on which brand to buy . I am looking at Woods Land Pride and Bush Hog I want something with a rugged drive terrain and a rugged deck that doesn't dent up the first time you hit a rock. any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I recently purchased the Bush Hog 296 and am extremely pleased with its performance.

    you might look at your max lift cap for brush hogs (lift type) in your manual. it probably is less than the max lift capacity of your arms since the hog will extend out much further. great idea going heavy duty, but 7 & 8 foot lift models really start to get heavy.....my rhino 8' hd (twin spindle) is around 2000. perfect for my 8540, too much for your model i suspect....7' would heavy duty would be pushing it, but maybe not. be safe!!! check your manual specs.

    In my opinion, all three make good cutters though a couple will disagree on at least one brand. I use a Land Pride RCR2672 on my L5030 and it would not handle a 3PH 8', so as per Big Bubba, check your specs. We use a Woods DS1260 10'6" pull type on our M8540 as the weight was a little more than we wanted on a 3PH.

    If you want a big mower, relatively speaking, on that tractor, you "may" have to go with a semi-mount or pull type.

    What is you budget limit?

    I've had Woods, Bush Hog, and a few other minor brands. MUCH MUCH better service out of the Bush Hog mowers, but keep in mind I tend to gravitate towards heavy duty or extreme duty mowers. With "economy grade" mowers' there isn't much difference in ANY brands. They're ALL built light and cheap IMHO.

    Also keep in mind, there is no "gold standard" as to what heavy duty is....Some brands versions of heavy duty aren't even as rugged as others light duty. It takes a LOT more than an artificially inflated big number for the gear box rating to make a heavy duty mower once you put them to the test.
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    kubota L4310 Power:
    Engine: 43 hp [32.1 kW]

    PTO (claimed): 38 hp [28.3 kW]

    Im gonna say a 6ft is going to be at the biggest you can go(3pt),just my opinion.But I like the LandPride RCR line of shredders have had good luck with them,and also like the Woods Ds model.

    Your going to have alot of shredder back there if your go with the 8ft pull-type,im not saying it wouldnt pull it but it better not be to thick.I use one on my M5040 and it does just fine in whatever you put it in.I have also used my 12ft with the M5040 but I wouldnt get it in anything to bad or im going at a turtles pace.........

    New 6'(3pt)under $2000 New 8'(pull-type)over $6000 Landpride#s
