Grrreat Mower
Not too easy to assemble, but once it was together, it mowed tall orchard grass and small saplings with ease. It is very heavy, but my Rhino pulled it up steep hills easily. The blades turn so quietly, I didn't think they were turning.

Junk
Below is my recently sent email to Bercomac concerning this item:

I recently purchased Berco Rough Cutter 44" from Power Equipment Direct. Within the first hour, a pre-installed fused popped off causing work stoppage and repair time. Within the third hour (over 36 hour period) the belt completely burned.

I had the cutter on the highest setting trimming down 16 inch grass. NOT THICK BRUSH!

The electric height adjustment is a nice feature. But there is no reference point to set... more
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Robert,
We feel extremely sorry you are experiencing some problems with your cutter. The Berco products are designed and built with high standards of quality to offer years and years of pleasure. Burning belt in regular application is not normal and needs to be addressed. Concerning the lenght of control box cable, there is an extension harness available for longer vehicle like UTV that extend the cable from 48" up to 96". It is available under part number 700793. Please call our customer service at our toll free line (877) 772-3726 to receive the assistance you need and deserve. We wish you'll enjoy your Berco rough cutter for years and years.

One Tough Rough Cut Mower
Mower arrived well crated and all parts complete. Put it together in one evening, and started it up the following evening. This is a well built, very tough unit. It will mow anything my Polaris 500HO will drive through. I did have some minor warranty work a month after purchase. New throttle cable and loose actuator plug. I expect small glitches, and the service center was nearby. They service Berco, but don't sell them on their floor. They might now! The guys were impressed with the unit and... more

Monster Tow Behind
Ok, I did have to use a vise grip to bend the hook on the belt tension spring. Without fixing this, the belt will slip until it melts away. The correct tension will make the engine stall before it destroys the belt. The engine to the lift came defective. I just used a chain to raise the deck. It is heavy. But others are heavier. I put this mower thru a field not mowed in a decade. I had to slow down to make it thru. This is the only rough cut. So I cant compare to others.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

Difficult To Assemble
Mower works as advertised. Assembly of the springs was TERRIBLE. Can't believe it is expected that the buyer would have to do this. Overall instructions are weak.
Cons: Bad Instructions

Not A Good Unit
Unfortunately made a poor purchase with this product. There were limited reviews which all seemed positive which is what drew me to purchase this unit.

First, when you receive the unit, plan on spending a few hours putting it together. It can be done with one person, but two people will greatly assist in the assembly.

The manual is lacking specific information such as how far to adjust the springs for the automatic lift. Also, the shear pins for the hydraulic lift are way too fragile.... more
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Unreliable, Bad Instructions

Heavy Duty!!
This mower is built to take it, but that also means you have to have something to pull it. I am using an Artic Cat 400 with 4 wheel drive on hilly ATV trails and it gives it a workout. No lawn tractor will manage the job. I have mowed over all kinds of brush, saplings, tall grass and weeds with no problems at all. The remote power height adjustment is great. I had no idea this machine would be so well built and heavy duty, but I am very happy with the product. It will wear me out long... more

Bercomac 700713
This Bercomac mower is equipped with powerful 17.5HP Briggs & Stratton 4-Cycle OHV Engine and has some other quality features like electric deck lift which adjusts cutting height from operator seat, control box which mounts near seat so controls are easy to reach and operated presence control which will stop the mower if the user falls of the mower for safety which makes this mower easier to use and control when mowing.
