    Picking up a Woods Rotery Cutter today!

    Got a great deal on a 5' Woods Brush Hog picking it this morning for $200.00 and it includes a set of extra blades too! It is from a neibor that is moving near us I know. It has not been used much except when I get it I have a lot of work for it to do. Thinking of mowing for $50.00 a hour around here and maybe some grading work for extra bucks to buy toys with for my JD4044M! Pictures later of it. Did get a nice 18HP Craftsman 42" Mower to make a Lawn Tractor out of for free. It was dropped off here? Runs great after I fixed the plugged fuel problem it had in a few mins. I won't mow with it just drive around and pull a little trailer once in a while on the place fixing fences ETC. Click image for larger version.

ID:	636440I was also given a 12HP one a little smaller I can mow the fence line with that runs also. When it rains it pours around here!! Had to buy new back tires for both? Tread was like new just the rubber was old and cracked!!

    Mowing for yourself with that 5ft brush hog would be one thing, but mowing for someone else would get tiring pretty quickly. I am planning on accepting a few jobs with my 10ft brush hog, but I would not even think about doing it for $50 per hour.

    I charge by the acre, so the fewer you have, the more it costs. I use the mowerplus II app to track how many acres. I just did 8 acres yesterday in about 3 hours with the 4510 and woods BB60X. Thats about $14-18/hr or so. Not bad for extra equipment funding.

    Nice app. I downloaded it, but it could not find a mower for me. It seems to be more about lawn and garden tractors. I use a 110 inch RFM for my yard and have been using it for rough cut also, but now I will be using my 10ft Rhino brush hog for rough cut. I had a 6ft Rhino, but it was not big enough for me to bother with. Early in the year before the ground gets hard, I can do 10 acres an hour with the RFM at full speed in B range. Later, when the ground gets hard and rough, I have to cut down to 6MPH or so, which reduces the amount of acreage I can cut per hour. With the 10ft Rhino, I will go as fast as I can in B range, but will likely be around 5-6MPH, so about 5-6 acres an hour. This might be faster or slower, depending on what I am cutting. With these numbers, you can see why I have to charge more per hour. However, I normally charge by the job, so the customer knows in advance what his cost is going to be.

    Another thing that is important: Customer must state whether there is anything in the brush that could damage my equipment. If he says no, then he is advised that if there happens to be something hidden in the brush, he is responsible for the cost of the damage. I always have the bucket on the loader when mowing a property for the first time and keep it real close to the ground (tilted up) to give warning of any stumps, etc.

    It is a M5 Rotery Cutter

    OK I picked it up not new but I still think a good deal. It is the older M5 and it is hooked to my tractor right now to try mowing with it. The PTO Shaft was not long enough cause someone had cut it to shorten it for some stupid reason?? I will get a new one later with a proper shield but I just cut and welded up the shaft 6" longer. Spun it up to PTO Speed and it was smooth or smoother then when it was to short. Just want to know how it cuts ect before putting any money into it. It came with a set of extra blades and the ones on it look OK. I might even paint mine if it runs good??? This is the model I have.Click image for larger version.

    For that price , even if you had to buy a set of blades that would have been a good dear.

    OK Here it is and yes it cuts! First for me in 21 years!!

    Just had to much fun mowing but saved 60+ acres I can still do later. Cuts nice even with dull blades there now sharp. Been out mowing for a few hours and mowed the Lake Pasture down to a better eating height. I took some pictures of the area I mowed. Mowed a nice Fire Break the whole length of the property line on one side and on both sides of the side road.

    I can do this all day and enjoy it long as I don't hit any ROCKS! Hit a couple small ones in 3 plus hours of mowing. Haft was in unknown tall grass and I found a couple small rocks the mower just ate for breakfast! It did make crappy tall looking pasture nice looking for eating again. The pictures are taken near the riding arena next to a area the water goes thru when it is high by the Lake. Coat of paint sure would help on the looks department? Plus I will buy a new PTO Shaft if for nothing except safety reasons it is worth it, there covered this one isn't! It would just suck in what ever got near it when spinning. Picture Problem??

    Pictures not working to post for me?

    Not sure why I just did one but the place I need to put it in is gone? Maybe later it will work if I refresh my computer.
