Yes, it did do a very nice job! My BIL used to have one of those & he loved it. Coincidentally, Maynard & I both were bush hogging today also. But I was using a 145hp MF2745 with a 14' batwing on some hillsides hard to walk up. "But pucker" hills! Hey Maynard...what were you hogging with?
I didn't have to deal with any "butt pucker" inducing hillsides but when the front end of my mf12 dropped into a large abandoned gofer hole I think I pee'd a little!

I looked at my pasture today and thought it needed bush hoggin but the last time it was done my sweetie came in looking like dirt when she was done so I might have to increase the bribe to get her to do it again anytime soon.

Hey Maynard...what were you hogging with?

Here's some pics of the job I did today, this was actually a woman's yard. I had a lot of fun and the bush hog paid for itself.
Looks like an awesome job on getting that mower to work and pay off for you. Just a word of caution: If possible, walk the grounds you intend to brush hog. I've found a lot of metal and big holes with my brush hog and sickle bars over the years even after I thought I had checked the area good...you can ruin equipment fast not to mention hurting yourself! Be careful out there! ;)
"But pucker" hills!
We live on a hill and my septic system is in the middle of my front hay field. After we cut the hay I usually brush hog down the grass on the front of the septic mound with my MF 1552....I back up it to cut and mid way up I am basically standing on the floorboards with my back against the seat it's so steep! I always leave my bucket on as well as a safety precaution. That is my "butt pucker" hill to mow!
