I'm looking for an address for Howse mowers. I'd like a 4 footer for attaching to my Farmall A and need to know if they make one for a drawbar application. If not a Howse any 4 footer would do as long as it was a drawbar model that had height adjustments. Thanks, Shep

I use a 4 ft. King Kutter cheap brush hog behind by 1940 Farmall A. It works fine, but it does take a while. I can get 5 acres of 6 ft high "grass" cut in about 4 hours. I have 180 small trees and some rough ground to avoid so it could go faster if it were just flat without obstructions.

I actually bought the 3 pt model and used angle iron to connect it to the drawbar initially. I now made a simple 2 and a half point hitch and use a winch to raise and lower the height. Of couse I cannot pick up the entire mower with this setup. The only way this causes a problem is when I am on the road in 4th gear. The one rear cutter wheel has a tendency to flop around and shake everything.

What are you going to cut...???

The "A" will run a 6' Woods finish mower just fine.... I'd think a 48" Bush Hog would be a waste of time... You'd only be cutting about 36" with it......

I'm up in Maine and my new place is about 50 acres of reverting logged off land.. It was logged about 15 years ago and has come back in a lot of white birch and popple and some oak and beechnut. I'm slowly but surely cutting all the stumps flat with the ground, mowing the smaller stuff and discing it for food plots. It's a pretty rough operation. I've got a worn out old 42 inch bush hog right now that's got a big crack in the spindle and is almost ready to quit on me. It's and odd ball belt drive and it's time for an upgrade. I was kind of afraid to go to something like a nice woods for fear of beating it to death in the real woods!! I've got my A set up narrow so it'll fit between the trees when I'm mowing. Thanks Burrhead for turning me on to the Howse website.
