Hi Guys,

I picked up the new to me Hydracutter on Saturday afternoon. Got some time today to hook it up and test it. The grass in my field is about 16" tall and completely saturated from the weekend full of showers. I made a few passes just to see what it could do and I have to say that I am impressed. It runs smooth, very good quality of cut and it didn't tax my 448 for power at all. I can't wait to see what it will do with dry grass.

The price was reasonable, not too cheap and not too expensive, and I didn't have to deal with freight or any of that crap. I want to thank Nutcase446 for making it all happen, I couldn't be happier.

That thing looks pretty sweet.

I want some more details. Is it just grass you're cutting? Are you creeping around in low range or using high range?
I have about 1.5 acres of field that I mow 3-4 times per year just to keep it from getting overgrown. There is roughly 1 more acre that has some small bushes and saplings that I want to reclaim.

Today's test mowing was on 16" tall wet grass and I made a few passes in low range. When the field dries out I plan on trying high range to see how it reacts. I am also interested in seeing what it will do with the bushes and small saplings. If the today's performance is any indication, I think the results will be good.

The HC will make short work of the bushes and small saplings. Just feed them to it slowly. Are you aware that it is customary to run a front bumper when using a HC? This is done so you can drive over stuff like that with the tractor and bend it with the bumper and the axles before it reaches the HC.

I've yet to hear from an unhappy HC owner. Case got it right when they designed that attachment.
