    Sneaky,

    A neighbor has the 60" Swisher 3 blade finishing mower. It does the job. It is no commercial mower, but it does a respectable job for what it is.

    I personally have the RT-44 Rough Cut mower from Swisher with a 12.5HP engine. It has a single spindle with a stump jumper and 2 swinging "Bush Hog" style blades. We use this behind an ATV to do rough cutting and clear 10K of bush trails. It is rated at 1.5" brush. It does a very good job!! We are usually cutting hay and 0-1/2" brush with very good success.

    So, as for the finishing mower, it does a good job for the price. If you can back up a trailer, there is no problem backing it up. The Bush Hog stype rough cut mower is quite the beast. I highly recommend this one! I am constantly amazed what we can cut with that unit.
