I've put over ten hours on this machine and it has worked great for me. It has taken down 8' weeds, saplings, briers and other mess and totally destroyed it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kevalananda Swisher does the job
Despite how difficult it was for me to unload this product because of where the trailer arms were stored in the crate, the actual use is great. The product cuts the tough high grass and weeds and small saplings. I really needed to do that to a new pasture I established but could not cut with my regular mower because of some left over stumps. The stumps were basically eaten up by ants and replaced with anthills after four years of not being mowed but once by a bush hog I hired.
I really wanted my own equipment to do the job my way. My lawn tractor is only a 17.5 engine that I took the mowing deck off of it and have been towing the Swisher behind. The Swisher gets caught on the big anthills and in some of the high thick stuff but I am always able to get free and keep mowing with it. Once this first cut is done I expect the next few will be a breeze with the Swisher. I just recommend a little bit more power in the towing vehicle so that getting over the anthills is very routine as well. It is a little bit stubborn about starting with the pull starter, but it will start after a couple slow pulls as long as the key is put on run on the controller. Don't forget the key on run. It really is a very handy product and I am so glad I did not have to purchase a tractor and a bush hog for this job. I used to own those and really was not pleased with the time it took to change out implements and the awkwardness of the mowing process. Switching to a lawn tractor later on, when the pasture was tame and smoothed out was a great improvement to the grass and the process of mowing. This new pasture will become just and smooth and easy to cut later on with the help of this Swisher. Great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rjm 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.

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!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sweep1308 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by moose 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.
