I am just about to purchase the swisher rough cut trail mower 44in W/ electric start. My question is after I am done cutting the tall grass and brush can I use this machine for just mowing the enormous lawn/open land that I own. Thanks Michelle
Michelle 
from New York 
March 07, 2016
Answer
Michelle - the Swisher rough cut style mowers, including this RC14544BS, are not really designed to mow your lawn. These mowers use a sickle bar instead of a normal mower blade to cut, so it's going to leave your regular lawn looking very uneven - if it cuts it at all.

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.
Randal 
from Alabama 
April 29, 2013
Answer
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.

David Lavers
