ATV & UTV Mowers Buyer's Guide

ATV & UTV Mowers Buyers Guide

Night and day it grows. That is what it does. From March-October the grass grows nonstop along with other plants that must be dealt with if you own a small yard or 1000’s of acres. The ATV ESCAPE headquarters and proving grounds sit on a 100 acres of land, and during the growing season about 20 of those acres must be maintained or they become completely out of control with anything that grows. That got us to thinking, what can a land owner do when they own acreage and an ATV or UTV, but they don’t have a tractor? Can land be maintained off the back of an ATV or UTV? We set out to answer that question by pulling together a list of mowers designed to be towed behind an ATV or UTV that are up for the challenge of maintaining acres of land. Like us, we are sure there are plenty of ATV and UTV owners out there scratch their heads as to how to maintain large areas of land without taking the plunge for the cost of a tractor. There are two types of mowers available: Finish cut and rough cut. Finish mowers are more for cutting grass down to an inch or so, and these mowers tend to make things look “pretty” once the mowing is done. Rough cut or field and brush mowers are heavier duty, can cut brush and saplings up to 3 inches, and can cut down to say 3 or 4 inches. In a perfect world we would love to have one of both. We hope this helps in the battle to control the “growth” that never seems to take much of a break for six months out of the year.

DR Power- Drpower.com 

We have all seen the commercials at some point for a DR Power product for accomplishing something to do with land. It turns out DR Power makes all sorts of implements for the ATV and UTV owner from road graders to harrows, tillers, trailers, and more…but…they make tow-behind finish and rough-cut mowers along with a trimmer mower. In fact, they have been making this equipment since the 80’s. DR Power offers a 6-month home trial and special financing offers.
