What is a Tractor Brush Hog?

Tractor Brush Hog - Bottom View

A tractor brush hog is another term for a large, heavy duty rotary mower. A brush hog is usually attached to a farm tractor using a standard 3 point hitch and harness energy from the Power Take Off (PTO).  The tractor brush hog is basically a large version of a lawn mower with a couple exceptions. The cutting blades are not mounted in a rigid fashion, but in on a swivel or pivoting mechanism.  This allows the blades to bounce off objects such as stumps or rocks without damaging the brush hog.  After the tractor has cleared the obstacle, the blades return to their proper cutting position simply by the centrifugal force generated by the rotation.  The rotary blades themselves are constructed of heavy duty carbon steel, and are not sharpened like a traditional lawn mower blade.  This is because the optimal action is not cutting with a sharp edge, rather the momentum of the heavy blades chopping and pulling thicker vegetation out of the ground and throwing it back down.   Some tractor brush hog blades feature a wedge design with an intentionally dull edge. The spindle itself that the blades are mounted to, is normally designed with a tapered lip to maneuver the brush hog up and over stumps without causing any significant damage to the cutter.
