How big of a brush hog do I need?
A 5′ wide will probably work for clipping pastures, mowing tall fescue heads and weeds, but not down in the thick stuff or hay. A 4 ‘ wide would probably be better for lower cuts in thick grass, but I just don’t think it will be heavy duty enough for 5’ tall brush and saplings.
What size tractor do I need for a 7 ft bush hog?
Silver Member. Your PTO HP should be 5HP per foot ( width ) for things like a finishing mower, rotary cutter, tiller, etc. So for a 7 ‘ bushhog you should look at least 35HP @ the PTO and for a 9’ bushhog you should look at least 45HP @ the PTO. This is just a general rule of thumb.
