AcrEase Rough Cut Mower Review

Rough Cut Field Mower

 

Mower Selection:

With about 10 acres to mow including several with very thick and tall meadow grass, I wanted to make sure I had enough power. I also wanted a good sized deck so I could get the job done without spending days doing it.

I recently used a friend’s tractor with a PTO tow behind mower.  What I found was it would bog down when trying to mow tall/thick grass. I knew that I didn’t want to compromise with a mower that did not have enough power to do the job properly.

In the end, I found Kunz Engineering.  They are a family owned business that focus on manufacturing the AcrEase tow behind mowers for the ATV and UTV market.

Kunz AcrEase rough cut models offer the highest horsepower and heaviest built decks with a deck size of either a 44″ or 57″ deck.

Product Information:

  • Extra heavy duty 44″ or 57″ deck design built out of 10 GA. steel with additional heavy reinforcement top plates in the blade mounting area, 3/16″ side plates and 1/4″ skids.
  • Capable of cutting 2″ saplings and brush due to the large 30mm (1-3/16″) blade spindle shaft size.
  • Rough Cut Field Mower behind a John Deere Gator XUVAcrEase takes it to the next level in tow-behind technology and equips the 57″ models with a 20-23 HP electric start twin cylinder engine option. The rugged 44″ models have large 17.5-18 HP electric start engines.
  • Stable on steep inclines and trail straight at high mowing speeds.
  •  With two independent cranks on the 57″ models and a single crank on the 44″ models, height adjustment between 2″-8″ is a breeze.
  • With twin 30″ blades on the 57″ models and twin 23″ blades on the 44″ models, the rear discharge rough cut mower is capable of reducing traditional discharge bunching and providing more of a mulched look.
  • The AcrEase comes standard with four tires for added support on rough uneven ground. The tires are also located within the decks cutting width to allow for close trimming.
  • The AcrEase rough cut mower comes standard with the ATV tongue.

Use:

So far I have used the mower twice and in both instances there was a mix of grass that needed to be mowed.  Some was tall and dry and some was tall and thick.  The AcrEase went right through all of it.  Definitely glad I got the 23 HP unit because mowing thick weeds that are 3+ feet tall is not an easy task.

This field wasn’t very tall, but it was real thick, meadow type grass.  Once again, no problems

The AcrEase can follow along in a very tight turn without hitting the vehicle. This makes it very nice for turning at each end of the field.
