48in or 60in Brush Hog

Guys I have a 2305 John Deere Tractor with weights and loader, I am looking for a used brush hog. I can find all kinda of 60in but not many 48s and if you find a 48in they are near new price. I dont mind a little fixer upper project but I dont want something that will need rebuilt from the ground up. the 2305 is a 24hp tractor also.

I think you should get a bigger tractor 24hp is about 1 cylinders worth on my orchard tractors.

Thanks Mike!

I wonder if i could put a turbo on mine?


I may have found a 4' by international technogies for an ok price. Need to call and see what a new one sells for. You ever heard of them?

Call around after work and can get a new frontier rc2048 for 1300 bucks and can get a landpride rcr12 48in for 1000. The frontier will absoulty work with my imatch quick hitch and has a slip clutch, the land pride may work with my quick hitch. So the question sheer pin or slip clutch?

Also posted a wtb on tractor house for a used one. Have not heard back on the one i found on craigs list.

On while i was a John Deere getting the price on the frontier, they said i need to stay with a 48in model.

Well I thought i had a killer deal on a used 48 brush hog brand 48 cutter last night. Found the add on craigs list and called and told the guy i was very interested but want to see it first hand just to make sure it was what i wanted, so i expected him to be cool with that, well he sold it to someone prior to me being able to get there.

So the search continues. Also found a dealer that sells international technoliges and a new one runs 750. So im still watching and waiting..

You want to try it out on my lawn? Its 6" larger then my lawn mower. My 14' flail mower is to big and the 15' Batwing to big to manuver around. I think your 48" would be just right!
