Woods,LandPride, Bush Hog, Rhino? Are they all about the same? Looking for a 6' #1000 lb. machine with slip clutch. Got 70 hp to spin it. Any opinions?

Anybody have experience with Titan? They spec out pretty close to everybody else but seem to have a good price advantage.
The dealer quoted me $2225 for a #1506, which is a 6', 900# machine with slip clutch. I know I could run another foot or two width with 70 horse, but after borrowing my neighbor's 6 foot, I appreciate the nimbleness of it. Had a Woods 7-ft on a MF 275 which certainly did the job, but in retrospect, it seemed big as a barge.

Depending on which 70 hp tractor you have I would look at a 7 or 8 ft bushhog. You want pull type or 3 point? Back in the 1960's I bet there were a dozen Brillion 6 ft pull type rotary in our neighborhood. Must have been really cheap, and fairly reliable. Though Dad did find out the gearbox wouldn't handle a full load of 3+ft tall grass at 5 mph with 90-95 hp. He broke more stuff in 2-3 days than I broke in 3 years of chopping stalks, mowing hay, clipping hog pasture. I ran that mower with a 33 hp Super H, 3rd gear, 5 mph was just the right speed.

I have a Bush Hog brand 307 made in the late '70's that I wouldn't take three times what I paid for it. I would not say the same about the newer Bush Hogs. The heavier made ones are gonna cost more than the lightweights. 70 horses is a lot of power for a mere 6 footer, depending on what you're cutting of course. I've seen a lot of Titan mowers advertised lately, they look heavy duty.

We have a 6 foot Bush Hog, the lighter wt. one, pretty disappointed with the design.

Woods has a very good reputation. Mine is 35 years old.
