You won't get 10 feet if you go in with the field cultivator first. If you aren't going to moldboard plow it,then I'd say yes,use the brush hog first. Then you'll have to disc it a few times to cut the stalks up even finer,then MAYBE you can get the field cultivator through it.

I have a 3 moleboard plow with 14 in. blades, but my tractor can only pull it if its no more than 6 inches in the ground.

Just it will make a fine seed bed. disc at an angle to better cut up the stalks. Disc it a 2-3 times and if you can put a harrow on your disc and pull it the 2nd or third pass even better.

Larry has it, although I did not have the option of a harrow so I used a drag. - I ran my disc through it 3 times - 3 different directions and then planted with a brillion planter - result was a very nice pasture.
