    I am wondering how many of you other than plowing snow use the winter to clear lots and or cut heavy brush areas on your customers properties.

    I will be doing that this season and I am refitting an old High wheel Brush cutter with an 11hp instead of 8hp.

    Any pictures of the beasts that are out there will help greatly to rework this oldie.

    Loren-We have rented the Billy Goat model from our supplier. It will cut anything you can push over! We also use winter time between snows to clear and prep sites for spring. Gives us a few jobs here and there to do. I plow solo, so when I can work my guys a few days, it helps.
