What is a tractor grass cutter?
It’s exactly what it sounds like. It is a tractor mower, used for large lot mowing, i.e. acreage mowing, and it is not a toy. We say that because every year there are serious accidents caused by inexperienced property owners who rent a tractor mower and, without any training, set about mowing their acreage, only to end up in the local hospital with major cuts and/or injuries.
We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, a trusted name in tractor mowing services in the Fort Worth area. Call us when the job is just too big for whatever residential mower you might have. We will get the job done correctly, safely, and professionally.
And, we will do it with a tractor mower, and attachments, using the expertise we have gathered over many years of experience.
The physical nature of a tractor mower and inherent danger
Tractor mowers are large, weighing in at an average weight of seven or eight tons, certainly heavy enough to do some serious harm to the human body, or the body of some stray animal in the vicinity.
The blades on a tractor mower are made of the heaviest steel, and strongest steel, in the industry, and those heavy, strong blades reach speeds of 4,000+ revolutions per minute. This is literally fast enough to remove an arm or leg from the human body. We don’t mean to be too graphic, but if graphic is needed to prevent one more serious injury, then graphic you will receive from us.
Proper tractor mowing requires a fine-touch and practice
People who work for tractor mowing services are trained in the proper use of a tractor mower. No commercial mowing services which are reputable would allow an untrained employee to operate such large and potentially-dangerous equipment. With that in mind, the fact that professionals feel training is a must, do you really think it a good idea to try and operate a tractor mower with zero training? This is not a job for a weekend warrior, no matter how strong the desire may be to save money and display a macho personality. We cannot overemphasize this point enough. Operating a tractor grass cutter is a job for the pros. Amateurs should never attempt it. Yes, it will cost you, but the cost of hiring a professional is much less than the cost of several days in the hospital, the time off work during recuperation, and the cost of months of physical therapy.
Insurance is a must
Point of fact, even the pros consider the use of a tractor mower to be challenging, so much so that any reputable commercial mowing company, like Keith’s Tractor Mowing, will carry liability insurance for protection. At Keith’s, we carry $1,000,000 general liability on every single job we go to because, well, accidents can happen no matter how careful you are and no matter how well-trained you are.
A final word about Keith’s Tractor Mowing
Bottom line, and this comes from Keith himself, with decades of experience in tractor mowing: pay for the acreage to be mowed by a professional. Yes, you will take a hit in the pocketbook, but you will live to laugh about it, and the job done will be first-rate.
