Answer: 
It connects with a pin that drops down through the hole. It is a very bad design(you can read my review about what happened). I would fabricate your own attachment.

Answer: 
I got mine a couple weeks ago and pull it with a Cub Cadet, Kholer motor and 52 inch cut. It gives me about 7 feet cut with a small overlap. Not sure of my h.p. but it must be 20 or so. The Cub Cadet is a 2006 model and the side cutter doesn't slow it down very much.

Answer: 
Rough Cut Trailcutters are typically pulled with an ATV or UTV since you are using it in brush. A riding mower can pull it, but the size needed really depends on a number of things. Your average mower with an average sized person should pull it just fine. For more information, please feel free to call Swisher's toll free line at 800-222-8183.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by recoil start problems had it for a few years now and have to say not happy with the recoil start I have had to replace it almost every year and I only use it maybe 8-12 times a year at my place in Wisconsin.It is made of plastic that doesn't stand up to the force of starting the engine. June 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine We have 40 acres.that is fenced and I pull the trail cutter behind my Kawasaki Mule to cut the grass along the fence line. I followed the instructions and pull it slowly and it does a great job. It cuts the grass and the small bushes with trunks around 1 - 1.5 inches. NOW read how Home Depot did at the end of this review!!! June 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice mower! Good product. Starts first pull every time. Fuel tank is adequate for two hours of use. Hitch assembly is of lightweight construction and could use a serious upgrade. Cuts like a charm! June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect cutter used the cutter to cut roads and food plots for deer, started first time, cut approx 20 acres awsome machine, good fuel usage, stump guard on blade holder is excellent design. September 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great field mower I love this rough cut mower, really gets the job done and and pulls pretty good behind my ATV. The only thing that bothered me was how stiff the hight adjustment crank was. but over the last few week it has gotten smoother. My only problem is that I didn't buy the model with the starter and that was me being cheap. August 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine Bought this unit to cut tag alders on roadsides where we moose hunt. This machine far exceeded our expectations. Keeping in mind that we had to make 4 passes we completed about 8 miles of road in a 9 hour day. Machine is a beast. Driven pulley nut wasn't torqued right from the factory and it did some damage to the pulley and bearing. Did a backwoods repair and worked it for another day. When we came back town I called and got all the new parts under warranty. Drawbar is a tad weak but once you get the feel of pulling it with a quad there is no issue. March 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Swisher Rough Cut I have been using this for about a week and so far I am inpressed. It had cut everything my Honda foreman has pulled it through. July 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower for the price If you are reading reviews, trying to decide whether or not to buy this mower (like I was), you won't be disappointed in buying it. I was really surprised at how well it works. I'm headed out today to use it again! April 28, 2015
