Rhino Rotary Cutter (Shredder)

shredder

WHY?  Our livestock usually do a pretty good job of keeping our pastures clear, but an occasional heavy rain will cause them to grow too high.  Just like your lawn, they need to be cut back to remove old growth and encourage new green stuff.  We wanted a shredder that was wide enough to minimize the number of passes needed to do the job, so we opted for one that was sized optimally for our tractor--six foot width.  We settled on the Rhino Series 200 cutter that is a heavy-duty unit equipped with slip clutches to avoid damage when the blades encounter rocks or tree stumps.  It attaches to the 3-point hitch and is powered via the PTO.  We purchased it  at Lanford Equipment, our local Kubota dealer.
