Expert Review
The Swisher RC14544BS TrailCutter is pretty much the same unit as the RC12544BS, except that the engine is a 14-1/2HP Briggs & Stratton, and it has an electric start. The 44-inch cutting deck is made of 11-gauge, welded steel and has a rear discharge design. The deck height can be adjusted using a convenient, single-lever cutting height adjustment. The deck, blades, and height adjustment are all very easy to use. Mow through heavy brush, grass, weeds, and tree saplings with ease. Cuts most woody materials up to 1-1/2" in diameter. The Swisher RC14544BS uses twin heavy-duty hardened steel cutting bars to make short work of brush. These two cutting bars swing back and forth like a pendulum instead of spinning in a full circle. The Swisher RC14544BS TrailCutter also features a universal articulating hitch that allows you to "offset" the mower – the easy adjustable left-to-right hitch enables you to cut to the left, the right or directly behind your ATV or lawn tractor.
