ShadowCat no longer uses a bushhog as they are inefficient and make a mess of the property if there is anything other than just grass. A bushhog is limited in use to grass and small bushes, as the name implies. ShadowCat can “bush hog” your fields or pastures to eliminate any overgrowth, including small trees, palmettos, and large brush, by using our Forestry Mulcher. We sold our bushhog as we do not mow grass anymore, however many customers still use Bushhogging as the description when in fact they need a forestry mulcher! Let us know what you need done and we will be happy to assist, or advise you if a farm tractor is the best option for you to save money.
Sometimes a farm tractor with a bush hog simply cannot do the job due to safety concerns. A farm tractor pulls the bush hog cutter through the grass and brush, however when the grass and brush is too high, a farm tractor is at risk to cut their fuel lines, damage the engine, etc due to hidden items in the grass. Enter a Cat299D3 compact track loader with its armor protection and the fact it pushes the mulcher through the tall grass and brush eliminating any chance to be damaged.
