How do I Rent a Brush Hog?


Brush hogs are also known as rotary cutters. They are generally used for mowing fields with overgrown grass and are usually pulled behind a tractor. Buying a brush hog can be expensive, but fortunately there is the option of renting one instead. Renting is especially beneficial with small, infrequent jobs and is possible for most people when following a few steps.

  • Call some local home and garden rental stores and explain the kind of job that you need to complete. They will be able to figure out what kind of brush hog will best suit your needs. Ask about their rates and policies. If possible, try a few different stores to find the best deals.

  • Complete as much preparation as you can before picking up the brush hog. The longer you rent equipment the more it costs, so avoid extra charges by adequate preparation.

  • Pick up the brush hog at the rental store you have selected. Rotary cutters are big and heavy so you will need a vehicle like a truck or van for hauling.

  • Ask store personnel to instruct you on how to safely and properly use a brush hog if you have never used one before. Obtain a copy of the manufacturer's guide if possible and make sure you understand all applicable policies about renting the store's equipment.

  • Clean off the brush hog after you have completed the job and return it.
