    Hello,
    Can anyone here tell me anything about Sidewinder "bush hogs"? A guy at the local rental place has a couple of 5' Sidewinders for $350 (for the pair). One is ready to go, the other needs a little work or could be used for parts. Good deal? Good mower? Keep looking?

    TIA,
    Mike

    I can give some input. These are basically good units provided you use them for what they were designed to do. You do not want to cut trees with them. I would not hesitate to buy one. My neighbor has a very old Sidewinder and it has given good servise over the years. They hold up very well.
