Mulcher vs Slasher
I would appreciate anyones experince on Mulchers versus Slashers.
I recently purchased a mulcher rather than a slasher on the basis that it would be able to cut long grass and small saplings as well as a slasher.
My expereince with the mulcher behind a 60hp tractor is that it is not good on any grass over about 6 - 8 inches long. Any longer causes the grass clipping to get trapped in the rotating hammers and reduce PTO ( and tractor) speed. The only way Ive been able to use it is to continually monitor the height and contdinually lift or lower the mulcher to try to keep it from stalling.
Im thinking of purchasing a slasher to do the longer grass but dont want to waste nmoney on purchasing another piece of equipment if it does not work any better than the mulcheer.
Does anyone have experince with both and what is your experience?
Thanks in advance.
