Walk-Behind Brush Cutter Built To Last
Because it can cut brush up to 2-in. dia., it’s also ideal for cutting fire breaks, clearing brush around barns and buildings, mowing shooting lanes for hunting and clearing trails through wooded lots, says Steve LePera, marketing director for the Pennsylvania company.
Little Wonder has been a leader in debris management since 1997 when the company designed a powerful blower with the air speed of a Category 5 hurricane.
“What’s unique about this mower is that the front bar has little plates that can swing in or out. There is also a solid steel bar that won’t bend like tubes that can crack and damage the deck,” LePera says. The bar knocks brush down and the blade cuts it. The plates keep rocks and debris from hitting the operator, as do the wrap-around hand guards.
“The hydrostatic drive means there are no gears to shift so it smooths the transition and there is no jolting,” LePera says. “It also has a speed limiter dial so you can limit the maximum speed it will go.”
That is helpful when learning to operate the brush cutter and in rugged terrain. The Little Wonder brush cutter can go as fast as 4.2 mph forward and 1.7 mph reverse and can clear up to an acre of brush in an hour.
The narrow width (30-in.) allows it to be used in tight places. For example, a Georgia tree farmer cuts brush before doing controlled burns to prevent fires from getting away from him.
Maintenance is easy too, with a single pulley system, an access panel on top of the deck and a reversible 26-in. mower blade mounted with a single bolt.
With heavy-duty brush cutter shoes, and 7, 10 and 12-gauge steel, the brush cutter is designed to last for decades.
“The ruggedness of this machine is unmatched,” LePera says. Besides farmers and landowner customers, rental companies and landscapers often purchase the Little Wonder Hydro Brush Cutter. It’s available through more than 4,500 retailers in the U.S. and Canada, and is sold internationally.
Suggested MSRP for the Little Wonder brush cutter powered by a Honda GXV390 engine is $3,557.
