Since 1951, Bush Hog Inc. has built trust with our customers and “reliability” isn’t just a word, it is the foundation of our culture. Bush Hog products have earned the reputation for their durability and ruggedness in the most challenging work environments. This reputation continues today and to demonstrate this, Bush Hog is offering the only 10 Year Limited Gearbox Warranty in the rotary cutter industry. This exciting announcement came at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky this past week.
