    We don't do bush hogging either Thats a whole different ballgame. Not too much into irragation either. But thanks anyways. We do work mainly in Hardee, Highlands, Southern Polk county. Its good to hear about someone close by.

    CJC, Iwould suggest looking in the yellow <br>pages in your area under bush hogging or<br>land clearing/firebreak contractors.Dont<br>bother hiring a machine or trying to put<br>your mower through overgrown land.Either way<br>it would cost you heaps.Using a tractor/slasher is real different from using<br>mowers,especially on steep ground.Lot of<br>guys get killed over here on tractor/slashers.You don't want to end <br>up playing cards with Elvis! :)
