If it has a receiver hitch on it already just put a 2" ball on it, it will pull it

Can this mower be off-set towed, or does it have to be towed directly behind the tow vehicle?

The offset is set left or right.

This is a great product. We have had it a few weeks now. Sturdy rugged construction. Easy to adjust to your hitch height and uses a standard 2" inch ball hitch. Key start makes it easy to start (started on first turn of the key.) The key start and remote make it easy to cut it off while traveling to a new cut path which conserves gas. I found the when the gas runs out usually coincides perfectly with needing a break from riding. We pull this mower with a UTV (side by side) and find if we can run over it with the UTV the mower will cut it with no problem. Great for those tricky areas. We had a thick briar patch that was overgrown in a path. We offset the mower (to the passenger side) and in 15 mintues we had an 8ft tall 15ft wide briar patch mulched down. This would took hours with by hand and would have been painful. We are using this in our pines stands to keep volunteers down during the spring growth spurt and it does not damage the pine straw beds. After much debate on making the purchase we are only sad we didn't do it sooner. This is well worth the investment for us because it has cut our labor time from days to done before lunch on several projects.

The delivery was fast and free, I had it shipped to the Store with in 5-min. I was strapping it down, it was in a crate no damage, The Swisher Commercial Pro 44 is a BEAST it will cut what it said it would, whatever my side by side (UTV) will drive over this sucker will cut it no problem, it said it will cut up to 3" it will no problem, I have used it cutting the under brush at the house really made the place look better, I take it to the deer lease and mowed my hunting spots and my buddy's spots, I can mowed where tractors could not go, starts easy and runs great, I really like it so far no problems , Thank you Home Depot for a great price

Poor battery box design, as only has a rubber bungie strap to hold in place. Also the Kawasaki engine calls for a min 550 CCA battery, but the battery box will only fit a U1 sized battery which comes in a maximum of 350 CCA.
by LL
Response from Swisher Product ExpertMay 5, 2020
We are sorry that you are experiencing issues with your battery. Kawasaki recommends the same 550 CCA battery for engines regardless of horsepower rating, for example the Kawasaki manual for the FX1000 35HP 999CC engine also recommends a 550 CCA battery. Of course, the higher cranking amps may turn the engine over faster but 300 cranking amps will start a 14.5 HP engine at 32° F and the battery bracket is sized to fit the most common size lawn and garden battery. If you are in a very cold climate, perhaps a higher CCA battery would be better. If we can assist further, please contact us at 800.222.8183. Swisher

This thing can cut!!!
The Swisher 44” country cut did exactly as advertised. I assembled the tow arm and attached a battery and it started no problem. The Kawasaki 14.5hp engine was powerful enough to meet my needs. I attached it to my Honda 500 and cleared a 5 acre yard that was abandoned for years with ease. It cut thick 4’ high grass and shrubs with ease. I was even cutting 3” thick trees with ease. If I got my quad to run it over, nothing but wood chips out the end! I found that if my quad could run it over, the swisher would cut it it. I even ran over a few unseen obstacles like rocks and concrete with very minimal Knicks or damage to the blades due to the folding blade system. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone to use in a similar circumstance.
