Food Plot Mowers?

3 posts in this topic

I was just wondering what everyone has been using to mow their clover/food plots. I have been looking at a Agri Fab, but I am not sure if it is tough enough. I would also like something that can cut some small brush on our trails. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

I have a Swisher RoughCut Trail Mower, after a lot of looking around it seemed to be the best value and it has a good reputation. I only have 1 season of use with it but so far I really like it. I mow my driveway, atv trails and foodplots with it. Brush and small trees are no problem, my trails are better (and wider) than they've ever been before.

lungslicer!! Must be a doctor!!! Welcome to the forum!

I also have bush hog type of mower. It is nice to be able to cut off small trees and brush with it but the downside is that it throws the majority of the cut material to one side, it rests in your wheel track and that cut stuff can choke out your clover (or whatever you've planted) in your wheel tracks. You can minimize some of that by cutting more often so you're not leaving as much trash. An ideal mower would spread the trash out. But a nice thing about a bush hog type mower is that you can hit a stump or rock and keep on going without a breakdown.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
