Skid Pro Open Front Brush Cutter

Is anyone running a Skid Pro 72" Open Front Brush Cutter?

http://www.skidpro.com/open-front-in...-brush-cutter/

They are running a promo right now with free hoses and couplers, free shipping and $100 off for new customers.

I am looking for a mower to put on the front of my 04 Cat 257. I have 15.9 GPM so I am right in the window for this mower. It looks to be the most rugged mower with an open face that would actually run on my machine.

Anyone with any input on this unit?

Thanks for your time.

its about time that VT gives up its obsession with brush-hogs and chain saws and admits that there might be a better answer!

With the promo its about $6300.

ZAB I totally agree. The tractor mounted brush hog is nice for large open fields but my 257 could do some very nice work on steep banks, ponds, tight spaces etc. Trying find a niche mowing and moving snow for my machine.

Where in VT are you?

You can get a cutter for 3500.00 dollars that will do everything your machine is capable of. The one I have is similar too what dirtman uses and I have knocked down 8 + inch trees with it.

AWJ,

What mower are you running and on what machine? What are your GPM?

I am shopping around. Not really sure what I want. Just know I want a mower for my cat. The only mower I have seen is a bobcat brush cat at the local dealer. I didn't like that it had the safety roller but its the only mower I have seen.

RF, how do you like the wildkat? Do you have the push bar version? What are you running it on? I am also considering them because of the major price difference.

I understand I am on the lower end of the flow spectrum but I think my machine could still handle a mower.
