We have land in the hill country and I am looking for something that would best meed our needs since I don't have a tractor. Land is rocky with hilly terrain. Not a lot of areas to mow but grass gets pretty tall where it does grow. Looking at either a tow behind flail mower or brush hog type mower to pull behind our ATV. What are your opinions on which would be best for this type of terrain?

The property is not fenced at this time so goats aren't an option. A flame thrower would be fun but... too much cedar. I'm interested in the dr power brush mower but am curious how it would hold up to the very likely rock strikes. The place seems to grow rocks.

My neighbor has one he pulls behind his ATV. It is very tuff. I can't believe it still works. I will get the brand name if I don't forget this afternoon.

Swisher rough cut tow behind.
But, you'll have to set it so you don't contact rocks often.
Spinning metal blades and rocks are a bad combination no matter what you use.

Maybe a walk behind self propelled brush cutter so you can see the rocks & raise mower deck before contact.
Swisher makes them too.

I saw a guy that had a Bobcat steer skid with a mower attachment on the front "mow" a field and the bar ditches and creek moving along like it was all flat ground. That or one of the flail mowers would be my choice.

Thanks for the replies. I don't plan to intentionally hit the rocks but with the amount that is out there it is inevitable that it will happen at some point. Dogcatcher, could you tell me why a flail would be your choice?

I had a chance to buy one of those (old ones) for about $300 and passed because I thought he was a little high at the time. Wish to hell I'd bought it.

I have a SWISHER Mower that I use for the Trails and around the barn at our lease. It is awesome and works well for the 3-4 acres I mow at once.
