its a 6ft cutter. im keeping my eye out for a used 8ft cutter for some of my larger jobs.

working on a contract right now, with my local Union Pacific office for maintaining some right of ways and their train yards.

im really working on getting into some industrial contracts, i have all the licenses, so time to put them to work.

i also picked a used yamaha 250cc utility 4wheeler for $200 from a buddy. needs a lil work, but will make a great spray rig to bring along while bushhogging.

Nice tractor, I want to get a little 5ft brush hog for mine but over the past year and half the few jobs I bid I never got and there is not a huge market around here for it

KrayzKajun, what's up yes that's nice. That's what I'm talking about making another big step. If I can get a used one that's find with me.

But, did you ever read my question about finding a helper and what do you think is a good pay for them in our area. You know how it is. It's hard to find good help, and when you do you must pay them good!!!

8ft is a little to big in my opinion, theres not enough PTO power.

I agree, that's why I suggested a larger hp tractor. Won't take a very big job to out grow that setup. Could still run the smaller cutter on a bigger tractor for tight area jobs.
