Ideal for cutting trails through the woods and clearing fields and ditches year-round, the 24-inch Predator brush cutter clears the densest undergrowth and saplings up to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Clearing up to 2/3 of an acre per hour, this self-propelled walk-behind features a 11-1/2-horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine and a heavy-duty cutting deck. Its single, fixed hardened-steel blade zips through brush and saplings like butter. Handlebar mounted controls are easily accessed for total control and safety. Ergonomic handles ensure optimal comfort-even on extended jobs. Large pneumatic tires roll easily over the rowdiest terrain for smooth cutting in all conditions. A four-speed transmission is great for climbing or cruising, and a reverse mode is handy for backing out of trouble. Front and side safety deflectors protect against flying debris. And, the Predator's blade is enclosed for maximum safety. --Brian OlsonSee all Product description

Minor complaints same as other reviewers...the handle grips are too loose and the clutch cable can get snagged.
Good experience with Amazon.
After 4 hours of trudging through 6 foot high, healthy, wet, Texas growth, the 1/2 acre in front of my barn is now clear. The Swisher did what it was supposed to do. Nothing slowed it down or caused it to labor. Since it's more powerful than a mower, and what you're asking it to do is a lot more than cutting a lawn, it takes a bit of time to get used to the operation, and some time to decide that you don't have to "work" the machine.
I do agree that the grips are a bit problematic, but better control happens if you glue them in place and if you use rubber palmed gloves. After a really dismal 9 hours with a new Toro mower, it was a pleasure to use a piece of equipment that worked as it is suppposed to.
I feel it was a smart purchase, and I would not hesitate to buy another product from Swisher.
This machine only has two wheels. In front, it has skid rails. That means it is not for fancy lawns, because it will chew them up. The balance is incredibly good. It takes the lightest hand pressure to raise the front of the machine to get over a bump. The drive is very powerful. Going up hill, it will tow you gently up the hill. Going down hill, the gears keep it from going fast.
The 11.5 hp Briggs & Stratton is incredibly powerful and it barely breated hard in use. An engine of this configuration should last anywhere from 1500 to 5000 hours provided you change the oil, oil filter, and air filter. The engine has full pressure lubrication, so it should run just fine up and down any hill that the Predator can climb.
I did not measure the width of cut that I was getting, but it was all of 24 inches if not more. The reason I mention this is that I have owned several mowers, and most of them did not cut as wide as advertised. This one does.
I do not think this machine can really cut 2/3 of an acre in 1 hour. The instructions recommend mowing in 1st or 2nd gear. Maybe if you use 4th gear you could cut that fast. Still, this is a fantastic machine that will undoubtedly last 15 or 20 years on my 1 acre property.
