I am looking to purchase a new brush mower to mow pasture and right-of-way. I currently have a Great Bend lift type 6 1/2 footer. Does anybody else who does brush mowing along with turf maint. have strong opinions about the new MX series from John Deere vs Bush Hog brand. Also lift type compared to pull or semi mount? It is hard to compare when all you know is what you are used to. The finish mowing is easy, EXMARK all the way. Any suggestions would be helpful.
