I wouldn't try it. Running a 540 rpm at 300 rpm would be about the same and that just won't "cut" it.
Plus, the PTO splines will be different. The cost of converting it over to 540 with a new gearbox and PTO shaft (or at least replacing the splined end) would be prohibitive.
However, if the bush hog was extremely cheap and the deck in decent shape then it might make a project.

You can purchase 1000 r.p.m., to 540 r.p.m. adapter sleeves
from a number of retailers so you can run your brush mower.
Please look at the Agri Supply - Farm Supplies, Tools, Lawn Mower Blades, Cast Iron Cookware web site to see them for one example.

You can buy adapters or PTO parts and convert it to "work", but it aint gonna mow well at all. Running at half its rated speed will make for some VERY slow mowing in heavier stuff. I am sure you will be dissappointed.
Depends on how cheap it is and how much work you want to do, you could also put a 540RPM gear box on it, but they cost $100-$200 for just a cheap one.
And you didnt mention where you are located, but if it is anything like where I live, Bushhogs sell cheap ALL the time on c-list. I'd check that out and wait till the right one comes along.".........there is only one way to find out."
