    Bush Hog

    What would be the right size Bush Hog I can us on my 1023? I was thinking a 48" but my dealer has a good buy and 60 used.

    It's all relative to what you will be cutting. Some will say that a 60" is fine. I, however, found that 48" is all my 1025 will handle.

    I asked around and came on here researching and I went with a 4' bush hog for my 1023e
    .I used it down at camp a couple weeks ago and it did outstanding with no real loss of power even up hills. Look up my thread from a couple weeks ago for some pics I took after using my 4' hog. You will need front ballast if you didn't already know.
    Let us know what you go with.
    John Deere 1023E with front loader and 54" deck
    John Deere ballast box....JD 647 tiller....County Line 5' rear blade....Howse 4' rotary cutter.
    All the following are homemade....Brush guard/front weight bar with weights....boom pole....middle buster....front hoe bucket....pallet forks....bed for hauling tools....rear weight bar/hitch....snow plow.... box blade....and anti scalp roller on the deck as seen on TTWT
    Modified ROP....LED lights on the ROP and ammo boxes for tools.

    I just brush hogged 5 acres today using a five foot brush hog on my 1025R and it handled it just fine. Most of it was taller than the hood of the tractor and had not been mowed for long time.
