Brush Mower: Take Back Control of Your Property

by Kelly Richardson, All About Lawns Columnist

Staring out at your yard, you see a jungle. Thick brush and wicked weeds grow unfettered from dawn to dusk. You'd love to use that area for a new garden, a spot for a new utility building, or a playground for the kids. With a brush mower, you can reclaim your property and have fun doing it.

A brush mower is the landscaping answer to the high performance race car. With power propulsion, seriously gnashing brush blades, and a host of high tech features, a brush mower can tackle any size growth your property has to offer and ask for seconds. Where the lawn mower won't go, the brush mower goes happily. And there's nothing quite like the sound of small trees and dense shrubs being sheared to shreds before your very eyes. Here are some of the features of a brush mower and why you should make it a part of your landscaping arsenal.

Brush Mower Power

  • Power to Spare. Most commercial grade brush mowers come in 11.5 to 17 horse powered engines. This is more than enough power to turn a wild field into a manicured area fit for just about anything.
  • Easy Handling. Sealant filled high rotation lug tires are perfect for uneven terrain. If your property is wrought with stumps and rocks, a brush mower will give you the handling you need to navigate these obstacles with ease.
  • Cool Cutting. The combination of a pivoting mower deck, sturdy push bar, and wide cut brush blades literally suck in oncoming foliage and turn it into finely shredded post material for your compost heap.

Perhaps the most attractive feature of a brush mower is the variety of attachments that allow you to perform a variety of lawn manicuring projects. Here are just a few of the value added attachments that you can purchase to round out your brush mower capabilities.

Brush Mower Attachments

  • Snow Thrower. For our Northern viewers, the snow thrower attachment is perfect for digging yourself out of those crippling snow storms that you’ve grown to hate.
  • Lawn Deck. Take your brush mower to your lawn with a 42" lawn deck. This mulching attachment is perfect for even the most delicate grass types.

Stop playing around with those basic lawn mowers and move on up to the power of a brush mower. Your property will thank you for it.
