Q: On the Swisher Rough cut trail mower is there any height adjustment for cutting height? I see that the spec says 7" is that the only height that it will cut?
by Rob from Michigan on June 22, 2015

A: Rob - the Swisher RC14544BS rough cut mower has a 4-inch height of cut adjustment range - from a "low" setting of 2.5" to a "high" setting of 6.5"
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Want to buy either 44 or 52 inch tow behind bush hog mower. Question is : I would be pulling it with a Kubota RTV. How long is the remote control cord ? I would need it to extend to the cab of the RTV.
by John Blandford from Kentucky on August 02, 2013

A: John - The remote operator control on the Swisher 44" Trail Cutters is 8-1/2 feet in length, and 10 feet in length on the 52" models.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: what battery should I purchase and does it use gas does it use?
by Mary Stuart from New York on July 02, 2013

A: Mary - you would need a 12-volt U1L type battery for the Swisher tow behind mower. This mower runs on regular 87 octane gasoline.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I plan on using a rough cut trail mower on a pond dam with a 3 to 1 slope This I think is about 18 degrees. Will the mower handle this without sliding or the engine oil running out of its sump.
by Randal from Alabama on April 29, 2013

A: Randal - Swisher does not recommend using any of their rough cut mower models on slopes or inclines of greater than 15 degrees for just the reasons you mention in your e-mail.

Poor Customer Service
The mower would not hook on to my new Honda 1000, so I called customer service at two locations and asked if they could help me. I never received a call back from both people.

I Am A Satisfied Customer
I would like to have had a small front center wheel on this so I could roll the mower with ease after disconnecting for storage and be able to fold up the tow handle so it could be placed back over the mower. I am a senior so having the front wheel would be of great benefit rather than lifting and rolling into place. The side wheels I felt were a bit too large and wide and flattened the grass. Over all I am very pleased with this mower other than what I stated. Performance is excellent and... more
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

So Far, So Good
I bought this mower to mow my walnut and grape fields. Delivery was on time and they helped unload it.

I have used it only three times and it works great. Starts right up.

I had to go out and buy a battery for it. I bought two because I could find the size anywhere on the manuals.

Neither one was the right size but we made one work.

Loretta,
We are sorry to hear you had a hard time locating the correct battery. The battery is referenced on page 4 of the Swisher owners manual. A standard U1 Lawn & Garden battery will work. Please do not hesitate to contact us toll free at 800-222-8183 if you have any other questions. Thank you for choosing Swisher.
