Questions & Answers

7Questions20Answers

Are the blades for Swisher "heavy duty"? Are heavy duty blades available for additional charge?

Asked by Dana October 27, 2020
1
Answer

The RC14552CPKA comes equipped with heavy duty brush blades which are capable of cutting brush up to 3” in diameter.

How long is the reach of the hight adjust unit?

Asked by FarmGirl1 May 1, 2019
2
Answers

Height is adjusted by loosening 4 each 3/4" bolts and lifting (or lowering) the deck to one of the other height adjustment holes and re-tightening. This is not done from the seat of the vehicle pulling the mower. It is a two-man job.

What is the maximum angle you can cut at?

Asked by CJ May 31, 2018

Answers

I have cut at a 30 degree angle horizontally on a hillside, and I've pulled it perpendicular up and over a hill with the same incline/decline. You just need to make sure that you have 4' of level ground at the top and bottom so you don't high center or prevent the machine from cutting to the proper height.

It requires a 2" ball to pull but, it could be modified. I pull mine with a 400 cc Arctic Cat but my 25 hp garden tractor would pull it just fine

Apparently you never read my 1st review. When we got it home it wouldn't start. It spent the first 10 days we owned it at the repair shop. When we finally got it back it ran for about an hour and a half then quit, so back to the repair shop. Since we have picked it up this time it has run correctly ......so far.

This commercial 52" rough cut Swisher mower with the Kawasaki 14.5HP engine does the job taking down up to 3" in diameter. I would only recommend the Kawasaki engine and the electric start. This mower has not bogged down at all no matter what I've thrown at it, and it takes dense alder in Alaska's interior to smooth ground with fine mulch in one pass.

This is a great mower, we had almost 3 acres of last years field grass / heavy 3ft high weeds that I was able to mow easily in about 2 hours. Our is not a flat field but sidehills with some 2" cottonwoods and apple tree starts. This mower ate those and spit them out without slowing down or missing a beat. It arrived 4 days ahead of schedule. If you are looking for a field mower that will take small trees and tall heavy weeds. Buy this one!
