I want to mow the field at my home, but it is almost as tall as I am. I have a ride on lawn mower but I still have to cut it all down enough to allow the mower to navigate. I’ve tried a weed eater but it isnt strong enough to cut down the brush. I know that there are machine’s that I can rent that will do what I want but I dont know what they are, or how to use them.

A motorized revolving blade that spins at very high speed and cuts pretty much anything that gets in it’s path (except metal). Basically it’s a long pole with a motor at one end and the blade at the other – they’re 6 to 8 feet long which means when held properly, they’re too long to cut your feet off with. They take a bit of getting used to but once you’ve got the hang of it you’ll be fine. Get the people at the hire center to show you how to adjust the fittings (it either attaches to a harness or hangs from a strap across your shoulders). Also get them to demonstrate the cutting motion. For high brush like yours you need to sweep the blade from side to side, starting high then lowering towards the ground. Watch out for any small stones – the blades rotate at about 12,000 times a minute, if they hit a small stone it will fly off like a bullet (wear strong boots). Depending what you’re cutting there could be stuff flying in all directions so a safety helmet with full face shield is a good idea as are ear defenders because they’re noisy things (a buzz- saw helmet will protect your face, ears and head). Some brush cutters are badly designed in that the motor is too close to your body, once it’s been running a while the casing can get very hot so a thick jacket is also a good idea. Thick trousers as well to protect your legs from flying debris. Effect Reply February 8, 2012 at 5:32 am (Edit) Alternative to a brush mower? The grass around my home has gotten out of control over this summer. Between a lack of time and just simply motivation it hasn’t gotten mowed and now it’s a big problem. Seeing larger spiders then before so I know things have gotten bad. Pretty much I need something that can handle an acre of land. Well not the entire acre but a large part of it. Area behind house, around and on the septic mound as well. After looking around it seems a brush mower is really what I need to tackle this problem (grass and weeds
have gotten several feet high in some areas and have leaned over) however they are pretty expensive.I’m wondering if there are alternatives to them. Something perhaps below the level of a brush mower but stronger then a normal lawn mower that could get the job done?Any suggestions on what could do the job? Any particular specs I should be looking out for? Brand?I know it’s getting close to winter and if I can’t find anything I figured I could wait until it’s near freezing and try to do something then. However would like to tackle this beforethen.Thanks A.C.R. Reply February 16, 2012 at 7:41 pm (Edit) is it just grass and not woody scrub? if its just grass your own rotary mower will do the job takes longer and you will have to work hard for not cutting it regular. just pick a day the grass is dry raise the deck and open the discharge flap and get going it will cut it. if you have woody scrub a axe or mattock on them then the mower can do it. you will learn the way to cut very long grass tilt the mower back as you approach and lower on the grass once chewing it up no trouble, If have a weed whacker can use that and will work very good as well. the brush mower could be hired and do the job. But use your own first change oil clean air filter, new spark plug, new blades and get started gabbin2you Reply February 15, 2012 at 9:20 am (Edit)Need blade for Troy-Bilt sickle mower,for cutting brush, MD# 34063, Ser.# 340631100139?I own the mower the blade is broken and I can’t seem to find a 42″ blade for it. exbuilder Reply February 17, 2012 at 12:35 pm (Edit) Here is a link to the Troy Bilt mower website: http://www.troybilt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/topcategory_10001_14102_-1 In addition, a Yahoo search for “troy bilt mowers” (include the quotation marks in the search box) yields 1,150 results.

I hear the flail mower does a better job of mulching and givesa cleaner cut.Any information will be appreciated.Keeping hay is not a factor because we will probably just let the cut grass desintegrate naturally.
