Deserts are rarely lauded for their beauty and lush landscaping; rather, they are epitomized as vast, brush-filled wastelands with no reprieve. So why would you want those qualities in your yard?
If you step outside of your home, only to be met with a yard of thistles, brush, and thorns—it may be time for some action. Fortunately, brush removal is not an impossible or foreboding task, and there are existing tools that make it a task that some people even consider fun!
A brush hog can vary in execution, but it is essentially a type of rotary mower that can attach to a riding mower or tractor. Unlike a regular lawnmower, the blades are on hinges that allow them more flexibility if they hit something hard like a rock, allowing continued cutting instead of a lawnmower repair project. The blades are also sturdier than with a traditional lawnmower—constructed of high carbon steel and up to an inch thick. They are also kept purposefully dull, as sharper blades have a tendency to get stuck or slow down in the brush.
Just as a Kleenex is the the common name for a tissue, the Bush Hog is nearly synonymous with a brush hog. It is not alone on the market, but it has enjoyed time as one of the more well-known and acclaimed by consumers.
