The cutter is just rebuilt land pride that all the flat metal was replaced except the H and power head.... 72" that seems to chew up the scenery just fine since I took it upon myself to do the rebuilding or buy a lesser product..

Great job Ernie, That really looks good after the hogging. I figured when I saw the thread name that you would have some pictures of a hog operation :D :D I sure guessed wrong.

Hey Chief, An idea for buying a fairly good Hog if you do not mind used is to check for local auction houses that handle AG equipment and vehicles around where you are living. My neighbor Dan just recently pick up a 2 year old Bush Hog brand rotary cutter for under $750.00 Just a thought in trying to save you some money.

Michael, I just did the sides and all the flat metal on this land pride and the cost was not counting my labor of welding and wire and sticks

Michael, I just did the sides and all the flat metal on this land pride and the cost for just the 8" channel and 3/16 flat was $480.. So your used hog is a good deal indeed.:thumbsup:

Thanks Michael, :thumbsup:

I have been keeping my eye on all the local auctions and papers. I am bidding my time in hopes that something will come along at the right price.

Chief. if at all possible look into a Land Pride rotorary cutter used or new... The one in the picture is 10 yrs and never comes out of the elements. So between the rains, salt air and the acids from the assorted ground cover that has been cut the main part of the deck finally rusted through. The power head has about 6000hrs since last replaced when sewer drain and cutter met in a field my supervisor at the time was mowing... Other than that it is very dependable and strong.. Just a good piece of equp. to own or use in or on unimproved fields.. My next recc. would be a Bush Hog brand ..A little liter duty but a good investment if it is taken care of, which I am sure that you maintain all of you equipment...

My chain saw ran.... Thats why I rebuilt the Land Pride onl the rear end is extensively diff> Square instead of original round . Had no way O makeing that curl out or 1/2 cold roll...
Those weeds are called Dog Fennel here and it does smell like fennel when in full pollunating stage now however is where it gets its name Dog as in wet Dog:furious: Lots of seat time now which is good. Right?
