A rotary cutter is a tractor-mounted implement that’s used to help control overgrowth of properties and pastures that have been inundated with brush or tall weeds.

What is a Rotary Cutter

These implements are often times confused with grooming mowers. It’s important to note that the two are not the same. Rotary cutters are typically used to cut through rough plant material (up to about one inch thick) and can be adjusted to cut at low (1 1/2 inches) or higher (9 inches) heights. After the rough material has been cut, the rotary cutter will leave the material on the ground behind.
