14.5 HP 12V Kawasaki Commercial Pro 44" Rough Cut

If you have a large overgrown pasture, you need the Swisher 44" Trailcutter. This mower easily attaches to your ATV or UTV and is the ultimate time saver for large jobs.

This mower will cut brush up to 3" in diameter. It features a powerful 14.5 HP (603cc) electric start Kawasaki engine, two 16" pneumatic sealant filled tires, two heavy-duty swinging blades, and a convenient single-point cutting height adjustment with a cutting range from 3” – 7”.

The remote operator control console lets you safely engage and disengage from a distance. Heavy duty work requires Swisher's heavy duty Trailcutter! U1L battery not included.   Made in the USA.

This unit comes mostly assembled.  Most assembly will be the tongue or pulling hitch bar and battery installation (Battery not included).

This is a Rough Cut Mower not a Finish Cut.  Not intended to mow lawns such as your back yard.

For details please see the RC14544BS Owners Manual

  • Tool-free offset adjustment using a 3/8” clevis pin and 1/2” spring pin. The offset can quickly and easily be set to 5 possible offset positions. The spring pin locks open when adjusting for ease of use.
  • A 2” ball coupler will allow a much stronger and movement friendly connection to the tow vehicle versus a pin connection.

Totally amazing trail cutter

I put the Swisher RC14544CPKA trail cutter to the ultimate test last weekend on a Virginia mountain top. The trail cutter chewed through 7-8 foot tall grass and weeds with no problem at all. It also chewed through 3 inch saplings like butter. The Kawasaki engine has plenty of power and never slowed down once. I cleared about 4 acres of very overgrown brush and saplings in about 5 hours using the highest setting on the mower and going about 5 MPH on my ATV. It should also be noted that the fuel efficiency of the unit is great. I'm very pleased with the purchase, shipping, and price from Wood Splitters Direct. It's an amazing machine and I would definitely purchase again!!

Close but no cigar

Had to put the drawbar with adjusments on by myself not an easy task. Where it bolted onto the outside front it should have been made to bolt on the inside because the height adjustment doesn't clear it so you can't get full height of the deck.

Swisher rough cut

Have used a few times on some large weeds and heavy grass. Worked very well. It's all about the engine, Kawasaki.

Swisher 44" Pull Behind Rough Cut Mower

I ordered and received a Swisher 44" Rough Cut Mower from Wood Splitters Direct. They were very knowledgeable about the product line and kept me informed about the estimated ship date. The mower I s a Beast. I'm very happy with the mower and Wood Splitters Direct. I would definitely order from them again.

James S. (Reading, US)

Bought for my dad, it’s definitely heavy duty, assembly went ok, it started right up and mows well, just waiting for the ground to dry up so we can really use it

Rodney P. (Pendleton, US)

It's a monster, once I use it we will review

John C. (Flower Mound, US)

Love the product and it does exactly as I wanted it to do.

S.B. (Dallas, US)
Product seems great so far. Shipping and Swisher customer service not so much.

We have used the mower a few times already and it has worked great. Delivery and dealing with Swisher has not been fun. We paid extra for lift gate delivery but Swisher put it on the wrong size pallet so the driver could not use a pallet jack to take it off the truck. Thank goodness the driver was creative and patient and we finally managed to get it off. Then, after unpacking, we realized that 3 nuts were missing from the package of parts that is used for final assembly. Must be poor quality control at Swisher. It took two emails to Swisher to finally get a response. However, 4 weeks later and I still do not have the parts. I had to go purchase them at a hardware store in order to be able to use the mower. Pretty disappointed to have spent that much on a mower and then not get all the parts.

Heavy Duty

First off Wood Splitters Direct was a great experience to buy my Swisher. What a beast, this mower is well worth the money. Top shelf components and does a great job rough cutting. Don’t hesitate to buy
