    If it won't fit into your moving van bring it down to the barn and we'll give it a good home.

    Hi Y'all,

    I have a 15 hp DR Brushmower & I love it.
    It has a 26 in. cut w/ a 1/4 inch thick reversible blade.
    When both sides are dull on the 3, I have, I touch them up
    on the bench grinder.
    They'll eat up brush & saplings up to 2 inches. I cleared several
    acres of woods, w/ it.
    I love the way it handles multiflora rose thickets.
    Thinking about buying their chip-grinder next.
    They look good.

    We also have a DR chipper (goes on the 3 point hitch) and it is a good machine.. however..

    Their customer service SUCKS. And we live within driving distance. It sort of goes beyond sucks and falls into some new and abysmal category. Also, all the parts are grossly overpriced.

    We also have the brush mower from DR. Bought it new 12yrs ago. Works a treat, easy maintenance, no problems with it. Very reliable and does a GREAT job!
