The Best Uses for a Rotary Mower
If you own a large expanse of land, there are going to be different types of terrain that need to be maintained, and different types of mowers will be needed for effective results – not to mention that using the appropriate equipment is essential for your safety on the job. For clearing tall grass and thick brush, a rotary mower with a stump jumper will be ideal. Mounted to your tractor, a rotary cutter will control the overgrowth not meant for a mere grooming mower. If you have rough areas that need to be tamed, and don’t yet have the right cutter, it’s time to look at a rotary parts catalog for equipment that will serve you best.

Capable of adjustable cutting heights, a tractor-mounted rotary cutter is intended for cutting through coarse, hard-to-manage plant material, from bushy pasturelandall the way to small, sapling trees. What is left behind isn’t manicured ground, but a rough clearing. Because the terrain will have many small obstacles such as rocks, tree roots, and stumps, astumpjumper for your rotary cutter will be your best friend when it comes to protecting your rotary mower parts and rotary mower blades from chips, damage, and dulling.

Keep your rotary parts working as they should by ensuring that the blades remain sharpened and also balanced. If you’re not acquainted with removing and sharpening rotary blades on your own, go to someone with experience to have the job done safely and properly. (Also, if you haven’t purchased a stumpjumper for sale, you can find one to fit your tractor at your favorite farm supply store.) In the interim, refer to your owner’s manual for proper care and maintenance of your rotary blades to keep them lasting as long as possible between sharpenings.

Finally, a tip for getting the most out of your rotary mower: be very familiar with your work area. Stump jumpers can help, but cutting over a large tree stump or rock a rock that is too large, or encountering an unexpected ditch are just a few ways you could cause injury to your rotary cutter or your tractor, and worse - put yourself in harm’s way. Finally, always keep the owner’s manual and safety instructions handy while you’re working.
