John Deere 2320 Brush Cutter

do you think that i can run a 5 ft brush cutter on this tractor? or should i stick with a 4 ft. i will be doing lighter stuff w/o alot of thick brush but with some rocks but i also wanna be able to use it to cut overgrown stuff also. What do you guys think?

stick with the 4ft. I have a 30hp kubota with a 5ft bushhog and even sometimes i can make it bog down. just my opinion though

just like strait grass. but like a foot to two feet that is thick. will slow you down. If you take it slow though you may be alright. the one we use is a rhino SE5

5 ft is a bit much for a 2320. We had a 4 ft for ours and that was enough. The extra foot will add a lot of strain to the powertrain and you'll have to go a lot slower.

So basically the extre foot would just make it less productive than a 4 foot

most likely just because you'd have to go so slow to keep a good cut and to keep the engine from bogging down to much

correct. What kind of bushhog are you thinking about getting, and how do you like the 2320?

Maybe a king cutter xb or a king cutter 4 ft standard? What are your thoughts on which cutter? And I love it. Its perfect for landscaping its compact to get on a trailer and around peoples yards without tearing anything up and its very powerful for its size. I've done stuff with it I never guessed it would do
