How well does that ground shark do in grassier stringy growth? Looks designed for more woody applications

With sharp knives it does "ok", but you're right, it's made for heavy cutting. If grass is your main objective, there's no reason to look at one of the most heavy duty mowers on the market.

What is the best style for tall thick grass and goldenrod? Where are you guys buying your mowers? Mail order or local dealers?

But I would go with a lighter duty, rotary style mower suitable for your carrier. What is your carrier?

That's my problem. I have a 52hp TL 120, 15 gpm. I haven't purchased attachments because I'll be committed to the machine. I can't decide wether to go bigger or not. I don't have anywhere near enough use for two machines.

Interesting video. I've run that particular Bradco. By the direction of the cut I can tell they ran the blades clockwise. Run it the other way so it discharges out the side and it cuts much better than that.

Bobcat is known to take some advantage in their advantage videos. I would think the suspended deck and two spindles would be a benefit, but that's it.


Personally I would go with a 60" Bradco, I believe. Rated for 15-20gpm.

If you upgrade machines, getting another mower shouldn't be a big deal, given the added performance.

I have been selling more Brush cutters than ever this year. The Bradco Groundshark high flow unit is awesome....for mid flow and low flow CID is hard to beat.
