I haven’t found much online about folks using their UTV/Side by Side with a pull/tow behind mower, particularly a brush mower. There are plenty of promo videos by DR, Swisher, and Kuntz/AcrEase, Dirty Hands, etc., but not much from actual homeowners. Is that because it’s not the way to go? After finishing a large acreage survey this week (the second of which I could have used a Gator on in the last 2 months), and fielding calls about several more, I’m exploring buying a Gator (just to generalize of course).
I would like to get a brush mower as more land I work on goes to brush every year, and I could cut some paths along lines, etc. I would also like to get a brush mower so that I could be ready to mow at pretty much the drop of a hat, seeing that some years we run out of time to use the brush hog, and then it’s time to mow again and I take the brush hog off, unused. I am intrigued by being able to mow our rough field with something with a suspension, and being able to offset the mower so we don’t have to drive through the tall grass (not really any brush in our field). I realize towing a “trailer mower” will have drawbacks from a 3PH type mower. I plan to also put a plow on it for snow removal, but that’s beside the point.
Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.
