    Anyone out there doing any of this. I have a friend that has an ASV RC100 and a Bullhog Cutter head. I have been contemplating buying an ASV RC30 with a much smaller rotary head to fill the gap between his business and mine. Any comments or suggestions?

    I don't think you will be able to do it.

    First off, I don't think there is a smaller cutter head than ~60", and that would be a flail-type of mower as opposed to something like the Bullhog. Secondly, the RC30 won't run one very effectively; you need a high flow machine and the RC30 only puts out around 10 gpm.

    This is the attachment specs. from ASV's site. It has a max of 2 inch cut. The area I want to work would be this and smaller. This would be for mostly residential and fence projects. I believe this would be marketable. Let me know what you think about the this model cutter.

    I don't know. I've never used one of those, or the Bullhogs. We looked into the Bullhogs about a year ago, but didn't get the contract for the job we were looking at them for.

    You might try registering over at Arboristsite and contacting a guy with the screen name Yellowdog. He's in Texas, and I believe he's used the Davco's a fair amount.

    HTH.
