    “Brush Hog” or “Bush Hog”?

    Help me solve a debate with the wife, do you call your rotary cutter a “Brush Hog,” a “Bush Hog,” or something else entirely? I get the feeling this is a regional type thing like soda vs pop, just curious to see if there’s a general consensus.

    Good advice, I promise though this is a “friendly” debate.

    I would call it a "POJ",, then park it in the weeds, and go buy a flail mower,,



    EVERYONE knows what to call it, you get a nicer cutting result,,
    and ALL the arguments go away!!
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Bush Hog is a brand name and I use it as such. “I happen to own a Bush Hog - not a Frontier”.

    When generalizing I will say brush hog. “I’m going to do some brush hogging today”.

    I would call it the 3 point rough cut mower......

    If I had to choose between "Brush and Bush", it would definitely be "Brush".....

    Bushes grow around your house in the landscaping and in our area, Bushes are cut with "Hedge Trimmers" or "Reciprocating Bush Trimmers".

    In our area, You would make a real mess out of your landscaping to trim your "Bushes" with a "3 point rough cut mower".

    Many in our area also refer to those mowers as "Woods Rear Mowers", or a "rear Woods Mower", because of the brand of mowers made by Woods.

    The Bush Hog brand is not real big around here, so when I first started seeing and hearing people say bush hog, I thought they were misspeaking, as around here everybody BRUSH HOGS their fields and brush.

    A sidebar is that it is also common to hear the term "woods mower" used for a rear finish mower around here. I would imagine that is more for the brand name.
