Beginner brush hog

Up to now I've push mowed (self propelled of course) the thing so I'm leaning on the cub handling it ok, and I don't have to worry about any rocks or saplings.

Welcome to the Forum!!!
I too am unfamiliar with the new Cub, but it should be able to cut what your are wanting. The first cut will look horrible, but let it lay for a few days and cut again, then stay on top of it.
I have an old Sears suburban, it usually has to cut up to 3 foot tall stuff as the field usually get away from me on first cutting due to raining springs.

Another option is this- Pay a neighbor who has the right equipment to handle the high growth and take over once it's down.. Cheapest way unless you gotta have the toys!
Where in NY are ya?

And it'll definitely help my sanity since push mowing 3 acres turns me into a grumpy sweaty mess!
Now all I gotta do is convert my trailer!

Not a rider but a very durable brush hog would be a gravely walk behind,the older ones not the newer ones. I have reclaimed quite a bit of land with this. If you have the $$ you can get one of the old gravely riders and install a front mount kit and a 36 inch brush hog on it. The gravely brush hog states in the manual "if it can push it down it can cut it".
