    was wondering what suggestions others may have for heavy duty equip that would be more suited to do the Bi monthly srvice on the bank owned property I work on.

    The grass is usually very tall and thick. making it very difficult evan on the best equipment.

    Also looking for insight on better ways of knocking down the jungles I come upon every summer at the end of July.*trucewhiteflag*

    I thought Swisher made a bush trail cutter. It's a pull type. We bought their 50" pull finish mower and it works great.

    Give them a try. :)

    Buy a DR.Field it is arguably the finest brush and long grass cutter made on the planet, their made in the USA and built to the extreme. go to this web address and check them out.

    it will pay for itself in less than a year. if you offer brush cutting and lot clearing with the machine.

    it can take down a 3 1/2 to 4 inch trees and spit out chips and cut 12 foot high grass

    No all that practicle to use on an overgrown lot in the city.
    I have done lots that the vegitation was as high as the house. I don't think there is any piece of equipment designed for this type of abuse. Never hurts to ask of other's expierences.

    I had been leaning towards using a sickle bar type mower for these lots to lay the grass and weeds over.
    The sad part is these lots only get worse and worse aftre being vacant / neglected all spring and summer, they are a real treat in the august heat!
