    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

    Ya I think ill go 4 foot. Like you said I wouldn't be ganing productivity maybe even losing it plus with a 4 foot I can cut heavier stuff and its slightly cheaper

    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
