Anybody ever heard of a name brand called "Brush Hawg" made in Georgia? Know what one is worth? I have a man trying to trade one to me that is almost new, 60 inch I think and real HD.

This brand name is Brush Hawg. I have a Bush Hog brand 3 point hitch for a farm tractor, but this is specially made for a bobcat type machine. I think they are made around Cedartown or there abouts.

Redneck, Is it open at the front with a couple of rollers with chains attached that thrash the brush in front of it? Seem to recall that name on some I saw at a place I worked 25 yrs ago. They where for a medium size wheel loader though.

Looks just like a regular bushhog, turned backward and run on hydraulics.

That's like the one Stiener make for their tractors. Just make sure you have enough Hyd Hp in your Aux Hyd to run it. If you can't find the Hyd Hp of your machines aux hyd circuit you can find it by puting on a flow meter and loading it down untill the engine drops to full load speed. Multiply the flow(GPM) by the pressure(PSI) and divide that by 1714. That will tell you the HP you have to drive it. It would be nice to have 50% more than the mower needs because you will be useing some power to travel too.

Thanks for the info, I'll check it out. Even if I don't use it, it is worth way more than what he wants to trade for. Since he propositioned me with the deal, I thought I would check out the value. Seems to be a nice feller.

I have some Lexan that I have been saving, maybe a door for the kittycat is in store!

Just another thought Redneck, Might want to check this guy out or see a bill of sale on that mower. Lots of NICE people have an Income Supplement plan these days.

Redneck, if you have a Bobcat GaTractorman over on the Heavy Iron board can help you, he worked for the dealer for a long time. I have email address if you need it.
