Opinions on brushcutting/land clearing

The biggest thing besides cost is that in order to run one efficiently you need a CTL with 90-100 hp putting out over 35 GPM. I would like to be able to use the machine for landscaping as well so I am thinking of something like a CAT 259B3 which is powerful enough to run an HD rotary head but still small and light enough to use for landscaping work.

I know the cat dealer 35 mins from the house has an HM315 mulcher to rent but I'm not sure about a high flow rental machine to go along with it to rent. Have to check into that.


I think that one of those Diamond rotary mowers paired up with a 259 would still be relatively efficient but obviously not as much as a dedicated mulcher setup on a high hp high flow CTL.

Any other thoughts?
