PTO Powered Brush Cutters

Tractor Rotary Brush Cutter

After land has been untouched for a few short months the grass and brush can really get out of control. The weeds slowly take over, the grass stands tall, and saplings even start to sprout through on their way to become trees. When the time comes to use the land, it can be plagued with heavy brush, briars, bees, and other annoyances that are hard to get rid of. The simplest way to get rid of all of the unwanted mess that comes from long-term unmanaged land is a rotary brush cutter. It only takes a short time for growth to become thick enough where your standard lawn mower will be very ineffective, meaning that a brush cutter will be the only way to clear and reclaim overgrown land.

A rotary brush cutter is an implement that has a PTO powered gearbox that connects to a spinning disc with usually 2 blades attached (sometimes 4). The blades are covered under a thin sheet metal deck for protection. The rotary cutter blades are heavy cast iron blades with a sharp edge on one side, and can cut through brush and small trees up to 2 inches in diameter. When using a brush cutter, it is important to wear clothes that will protect you from the briars and thorns that you are likely to find, they can easily cause cuts and scrapes to any exposed skin. Tractor rotary cutters are designed with guards so that they can properly mulch up the brush as you cut it for faster decomposition, but will not leave a clean finished look like a finishing mower will.

  1. The way these mowers are constructed are just incredible to me. Sitting on top of a giant spinning blade should scare you, but with how well they’re made it doesn’t frighten at all. That’s not to say that you should ignore safety though.
