Not sure my plans for the mower but for $80 with the aFrame cat zero was hard to say no. The terra mower has been altered but I may try to figure a way to run it on one of the JB's for fun. $120 for it all.

I bet that mower didn't work very well as a 540

I first thought it might be a 2000rpm mower till I saw the Yamaha sticker and I knew what it was originally attached too. This guy said the owner used it on a small kubota- you think he was using the higher 1000 rpm setting?

The aframe is a Case/Ingersoll RF27 3pt hitch adapter. I knew I had seen one before, but was not sure who made it.

The terrapro four wheelers had 2000 RPM pto, should be easy to adapt to the Bush Hog.

Thanks, I have been looking for the pto rpm info all night. From what I can gather these mowers were made by Woods. I use to have a Yanmar Y147 with a 2000 rpm rear pto. Wish I had found this back then.

Let me throw this one at you fellas. I went with my friend to PU two 982 Super Cub Cadet's. From Tennessee going to Arkansas we ran out of road and had to get on a ferry to cross the Mississippi river. When we reached our destination this freakin brush hog (we call them bush hogs no matter who made it) is attached to one of the Supers (both tractors had issues but they ran). The cutter is a Cub Cadet marketed product. I have no idea correct rotation or RPM on the implement but it and the Super closest to the goose neck sold before we got home with them! Super with the 3 point that had the "Hog" attached to it did come home to my friends farm, I just went for the ride that I WILL NEVER forget! What a trip!

This mower is a bush hog style rotary cutter. Should have looked at the labels yesterday when I was in a hurry to get it cleaned.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1454255424.931527.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1454255434.400997.jpg

That looks more like a finishing mower. Bush hog doesn't have all the wheels to stop scalping...

It does look like a finishing mower, but it is definitely a rotary mower. The RC42 stands for rotary cutter 42". I have not had time to study it yet, but the front hitch part is connected to the rear wheels and looks like it adjusts each other's height settings as it moves along. Keep in mind this was originally a 2pt set up for a Yamaha 4wheeler with a rear pto. In 1988 that set up was probably pretty expensive and unique.

They produced a finish mower as well- FM48.
