Dad got this DR walk behind brush hog a couple of years ago. Boy does it sure earn it's keep around his small farm.

He had initially thought he could put a sulky on it and use it, but it has way too much movement for a sulky. I use it all over the farm and am cutting pretty large saplings and such. It was a good investment for him.

I was wondering if others felt the same if you have one.

About two years ago, a friend of me Dad hired us to mow a lawn at a house that had not been mowed in about two years. He is a realtor and needed it cut. The realtor had one similar to one like that and I used the walk behind brush hog then my dad would come through with the '75 for a finish cut.

I have one with the brush cutter blade. it'll take down a small tree if you need to.

We are going to use it for Multiflora Rose in the old pasture.

I have had one for about 10 years now. It has a Kawasaki twin with a 26 inch brush blade. It has been used hard clearing many different areas of brush and undergrowth (up to 2 inches trunks on saplings) It'll do brush and brambles without a care, but you will need leather pants and gloves :laughingteeth: Other than the chain to the drive gear occasionally getting out of adjustment and/or pulled off on a stump it has never had any issues "none". It has paid for itself many times over. I change the oil and filter, plugs, and sharpen the blade regularly and have not needed any repair parts. They are as good as they claim from my experience.
