I was strongly leaning towards a ASV SR80/
PT80 high flow for this. I'm finding them just too pricey for my taste. What would be a good compromise of either ctl of wheeled unit with OTT's? I'd be using it for about 50% mowing and the rest normal skid work( forks,dirtwork,grapple). Is high flow a must? I was interested in Ted's comment about what to do with the tree when down. I was figuring to lift the cutter and then lower it into the brush. Is there any reason not to do this? Sorry for the Hijack Chris.
High flow would definetly run the cutter better and Imo is easier on the machine. as far as lowering the cutter onto brush or trees, the only reason not to do this would be if you are near houses or cars because it throws things like crazy. i hit my Dads truck with a stick he was about 200 feet away and it dented his door
