4 Tractor Attachment Picks for Vegetation Management
posted in Tractor Tips
Whether your to-dos include lawn maintenance or finally taming those wild, unruly acres, a Yanmar compact tractor outfitted with the right attachments will get the job done.
Tractor Attachments for Managing Grass, Brush & More
How do you know if you need a finish mower or rotary cutter (or both)? If it’s a fine cut you’re after, turn to a finish mower. These types are perfect for large lawns and grassy areas that are regularly maintained. A rotary cutter, with some power behind it, is just what you need to tame those rough and wild pastures. And depending on how many acres you're managing, we have options to right-size your machine to the task at hand.

Want that fairway look for your lawn? The Finish Mower boasts a deep deck (4.6 inches) and super-sturdy caster arms to support solid rubber wheels. Rounded front corners on the tapered, rear-discharge deck increase your maneuverability while keeping grass clippings in check. Available in standard duty (widths of 54 inches to 72 inches) and medium duty (widths from 72 inches to 84 inches), you’ll find your Goldilocks finish mower with Yanmar — not too big, not too small, but just right.
A rotary cutter is the muscle for taming those wild areas. Riding along fence posts, controlling weeds, or maintaining waterways, this rotary cutter cuts down unwanted growth and work time. Depending on the model, cut heights range from 2 inches to 9 inches. But no matter what, you’ll glide over rough, uneven terrain thanks to standard full-length skid shoes.
For a wider cutting swath, level up with the Flexwing Rotary Cutter. With a 144-inch width, this attachment offers a cutting height from 2 to 12 inches and can take down weeds and light brush up to 1.5 inches around. Requiring a minimum of 35hp, these rotary cutters are built for lower horsepower compact tractors.
And don’t sleep on Yanmar’s quick three-point hitch. Featuring heavy-duty steel construction and auto-locking lower arms, it’s a workhorse through and through.
