A TV mower for rushes?
« on: April 01, 2023, 06:52:17 pm »
Hi
Looking for recommendations for a mower (think it would be flail?) for towing behind a JD Gator? Will have a lot of rushes to deal with.
TIA

I've got a logic flail.  If the rushes are thick it's going to be slow going chewing your way through them but regular topping will keep them thinner and easier. I top once a month thtough summer and it seems to keep them under control. no thick clumps now  :farmer:

Thanks Philcaegrug, I'd been looking online at Logic, bit pricey though  :( , we have a Logic weedwipe, to treat them with, I wanted 9ft version, husband ordered the 12ft one (using my money, never been used, to wide to go through most gates, so annoyed  >:( ).
