    Looking to see if anybody has any knowledge of ORSI boom mowers. We are considering a River 2049, and are looking for any feedback.

    My uncle has a Three point hitch mower like the one in your picture but it is a land pride. It works good as long as you are on flat ground, when on any type of hill it is very unstable and that is on a Case MX200 witch is about 185 Hp. tractor. It is a big tractor and I felt very unstable on the slope around our pond. That is all I know about those type of mowers. Sorry if it is no help.

    He has a history of posting stuff that makes zero sense.

    Lots of those boom type mowers out here, the county uses them to clear right of way where it's just too steep to use anything else. They wack down some good size sapling branches as well, seems to work pretty well.

    I bought one of these last year.
    The paint on the cylinders sucks and an o ring blew out. But the operation was fine. You just have to remember it's only ment to cut 2" or so material.
