    Yeah, minimax has the cat's ass of a brush head on a mini, I believe it's a US Mower, a flail design mounted on his Deere 35.

    That is a damn fine set up, Hitachi reliability and flails are a nice combo.

    Make sure you get a 5/16" return line plumbed to the tank for the motor on the mower, even if the motor doesn't require it, it's a good insurance in case the seals pop.

    Is a Bobcat going to beable to handle a mower head ?

    Any Bobcat mini I have run it doesn't have the stability. You start reaching out with the mower its going to be making the machine flop around.

    A mower would work good in around my area but with the ground being so rocky there are large boulders lurking in the weeds that flail mowers don't do well with.
