Hello everyone, I was thinking about buying a sub-compact tractor to work on my 3 acres, but after seeing the Brutus, i am re-thinking that. I am interested in getting the HDPTO with the mower, forks, and loader bucket. I live in centeral Texas so we don't get any snow :D. I was thinking that I would want to find a way to make the forks not float since I would like to use them with a Quick Spade Paumco Products; Quick Spade Combo, Loader Spade Attachment any idea how difficult that would be? I do have a few questions for those of you that already have a Brutus, how fast can you get it up to? Also if there is anyone that has the mower, how fast can you mow typical lawn grass with it, does it do a good job?

dont think anyone here has the mower yet.

I am also interested to read some reviews on the attachments

But welcome to the forum!'

You dont usually go very fast though. Or the cut wont be clean


This kind of speed is where you would be going.

I was thinking that 5 to 7 mph would be a good speed for mowing. My current little John Deere riding mower that has a 42" cut and only 17HP can run 4 to 5 mph cutting the grass, so i hope it will do it faster than it would.. Granted I would be mowing in the A/C with the radio on so i will not care as much with the Brutus. :D

well its a removable cabin so there is only so much you can seal out. You could probably add some weathersealing yourself to seal things up.

that can be done, an OEM weatherstripping would be great to have, that way we know for sure it will seal out nearly everything.

I've weatherstripped a removable cabin before.

Do it at night in your garage. Turn the lights off and just get someone to go inside with a flashlight and shoot out. You will see the light leaks in the cracks. Fill with the variety of weather-sealing you can buy.

Good tip, that's probably the best way to do it. When finished the best way to make sure it's all good is to spray it down with water and watch for leaks. If water will make it through then you got a problem.

yea but weather sealing won't keep it quiet, especially with you sitting right on top of the engine. you need some hardcore sound deadening for that...

with light you're limited, it won't always travel as much as air, smoke or water. so water will be the ultimate test, if it passes that, you're good.
water is thicker than air though :)

and nothing weighs less than light lol

lights always worked for me.

and no cleanup either.
