Rated 4 out of 5 by from So happy to have this It's heavy, does a great job cutting. Super easy to start. I have marshy terrain with many different types of vegetation growing. It was able to keep up except where there was standing water and the cat tails are so thick. The only problem we had is we used a pin hitch on the receiver of our ranger and with the constant bogginess it was pulled hard at times to prevent getting stuck. It ripped the metal receiver. A friend of ours cut off the end, welded a ball hitch on and reinforced it so it turns easier and can take the heavy towing. Definitely recommend having someone put it together instead of doing it yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The beast So far so good. Any thing the Honda 400 Foreman can go over and knock down the Swisher will eat up. Have not got stuck yet but have a 3500 LB. winch on the ATV. Wanted a JD 3038 but know it will get stuck in the woods and is way over priced. Still might go for the Deere it can dig ,till, mow , pull, & drag. Haddock Georgia.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My review Ok, this is a good bush hog for what it is. I gave it (3) stars for two reasons. One, I like the electric start but would like the pull start option too. I hope the starter never goes out. The other reason is, I can't believe they didn't put wheels on the front. The slightest dip on the ground and the front digs in. You WILL have to put wheels on the front of this thing. You Will need a 4-wheeler to pull it, don't even think about using your mower. If the grade is 30% or more, you will need a 4x4. I do think this is the best model. 14.5hp and cuts off center so you can stay out of the brush after your first cut. Nice for cutting around edge of pond but bolts will loosen after awhile. Pull straight on if your cutting acres of land and don't want to keep tightening bolts. It does great for what I need but is no substitute for serious 6ft acreage bush hogging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. Have had it a couple weeks and have put it to the test already. It mowed my 5 acre pasture with ease, and it hadn't been mowed in several years... (I just bought the place) I also bought it to cut some trails into the 20 acres of woods that came with the property, pulled behind my quad. It does really well on even ground but tends to get hung up in uneven terrain. I think it could benefit from larger wheels in this regard. It also doesn't turn around very easily. Often, it has to be completely unhooked and turned around by hand, which is a pain but if you know this ahead of time, it's just part of the deal. Love the electric start and the power. It mows thick stuff with ease. Seems sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I read all the reviews on this on both HD and Amazon so pretty much knew the weak points from the get go. Modified & reinforced the tow bar to use a 2" ball hitch and did a better job of controlling the wiring. I've been using it in rough, steep, mountainous terrain in the front range of Colorado mowing down scrub oak and underbrush. It has performed excellently and is much more rugged than I expected. To clear we chainsaw all the scrub oak bigger than 2" or so, then pull the trail cutter through it behind a Grizzly 700 ATV. Basically, if the Grizzly can get over it, the trail cutter will knock it down & mulch it. The engine rarely bogs down no matter how heavy the brush. Keep in mind, I'm not cutting tall grass, but scrub/gamble oak and undergrowth. YMMV. It does have a few week points. First & foremost is that being a two wheeled towed mower, when pulled with an ATV, it is very hard to back up. As you reverse, the rear of the ATV lifts up which lifts the tow bar and subsequently causes the rear of the mower deck to drop near or to the ground. Since the minimum mowing height is about 4" that means the rear of the mower deck digs into the stumps you've left behind and stops you from backing up. It is a problem no matter what the cut height of the mower is but may be a bigger issue for me on varied & steep terrain than it is for someone mowing flat ground. To address this problem I'm going to add roller wheels to the rear of the deck like you'd see on belly mounted riding mower. The other thing I wish it had was an ability to control the throttle and the mowing height from the ATV, but obviously that's going to add a lot of cost. Bottom line: this thing is worth every penny I paid for it and is an incredible time saver. I've uploaded a few pics. 1st & 2nd gives you an idea of the conditions and is a typical path through scrub oak & underbrush after being cut with the trail cutter. Last photo shows an area after big trees were cleared of anything over 3" in diameter and then mowed down with the trail cutter. I know the ATV is in the way, but it does show what the trail cutter is capable of over a bigger area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING! I have 11 acres of wooded land. Last year, I had a company come in and clear out the underbrush and thin out the trees. The place looked good for a while, but after about 10 months of the Florida weather, I had new growth up to about 7 feet in spots. This mower cut through it easily. It took a few days of cutting, a couple of hours every day, but the mower worked better than I could have hoped for. I tried to avoid the stumps, but this beast had no problem when I hit them. The only limitation i had was the john deere mower I was using to pull it. There was a previous review about the manual specifying the wrong battery. Not true! You use the common battery as specified and install it at 90 degrees from what you would think. It fits perfectly. The delivery from Estes was good. The driver was very accommodating. Over all, i am glad I purchased this mower. They should rename it to "The Beast"
