I picked up our Hydracutter when we were tending a lot of field area, well-watered (by Mommy Nature) and thick, full of multiflora rose and all the good things that grow wild in New England.

Now, our field area is still pretty big, but my wife decided to mow it with the J44 deck set high-and it did fine. Really fine. Shockingly so.

The new field doesn't get the massive water, nor has it been left to go full wild. No rocks, no stumps, no giant anthills. So being able to mow that field without hooking up the Hydracutter makes a lot of sense.

For the areas that do have brush, we have a 26" brush hog for our BCS that maneuvers well in the woods.

The problem is, I doubt I'll ever find another Hydracutter. I'd hate to get rid of it and regret it. What if we start mowing another 2 acre field? A 26" mower takes a while to do 2 acres...

Any thoughts or opinions?

Sometimes.............a $20.00 Come-a-long solves this dilemma by allowing you to hoist that HC into a vertical position against a wall in your garage or shed. That minimizes the amount of space it takes up but it also allows you to justify hanging onto a valuable attachment that you may need every now and then. If you do sell it now, count on kicking yourself in the ass later on.

I looked for a hydracutter all over hell's creation, Maryland, Michigan, in your back yard, etc. I finally got one from another member that found it somewhere in New York.
These hydracutters just don't pop up everyday, so give it some thought before you decide to cut it loose. The good side is, they do a very good job and are rather easy to sell. You should do well selling it, but you are going to wish you didn't! :trink:

On the other side of the coin, if it's just gonna hang in your shop off of a come-along, what good will it be doing you? Will it just hang there to self destruct from non-use? I'm sure a member here would give you a fair deal on it so it can be used as it was intended to be used instead of being a wall banner. Man-opening up a can of worms ain't I? :sidelaugh: :trink: BUT- if you have the land that may be opened up to mowing and if that is a real possibility, then by all means hang on to it. also remember, it's a bush hog type machine, not a finish mower, though I hear they do a good job. Maybe a 60" tow-behind finish mower?

This is the type of attachment that is very handy when you need it but that can be an infrequent need so another option is to find other Case owners in the area and offer to rent it to them when you're not using it.
