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.  Not for sale in CA.

The Swisher Rough Cut Mower is a Work Horse

I recently purchased a new Swisher 44" Rough Cut Mower with the 14.5 Kawasaki motor (that starts & runs great). Be sure to pay the extra money for the electric start Kawasaki!!) Last week using my Honda Foreman 450 ES ATV I cut all of my land and trails on and around my hunting land (several hours, 4 tanks of fuel in the Swisher). Tall grass, weeds, rocks, small trees, etc are no problem for the Swisher, it cuts and goes through these areas with ease. The only thing I would recommend is that Swisher add (4) wheels, (2) on the front & (2) on the back of the deck for easier trailer loading & unloading and whenever you have to back up if you hit a stump or get pinched in a turn or a steeper uneven ditch. Several times when I wanted to back up or even go forward on a tighter angle or ditch the deck would hang up and dig into the ground. A few times I had to unhook the unit from my ATV, muscle the mower sideways by hand and re-attach it to my ATV (kind of a pain). I also had to use my ATV winch one time to pull myself and the deck forward out of an uneven area where the deck dug in bad. So I'm going to drill four holes in the corners of my mower deck and bolt on (4) 4" or 6" diameter wheels that I think will really help me maneuver better over my land. Over all I am very happy with the Swisher and rate it 4 1/2 STARS, you wont be disappointed on how well it cuts and goes through tall grass and saplings.

Thank you for the in-depth review of your new mower. Swisher make a great product and they are proudly made in the USA. We appreciate your business!

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!!

It’s a beast of machine works well

Hi Marvin,

Glad to hear you love your tow behind mower. Let us know if you need anything else!

Awesome product

Awesome communication with company, not so much with shipper. Swisher mowers are a good product, does exactly what it is advertised to do.

Thanks Larry! We are glad you are happy with your purchase. Swisher is a top notch manufacture.

Thanks, WSD

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.

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)
