Been there done that,
We had one for a year and sold it as what work we found for it took forever our Kawasaki 62cc Brushcutter cut the grass much quicker.

Also you are in trouble if you hit a hidden object ie a tree stump had one or two near misses there.

Lastly ever try to mow 5 acres of long grass walking behind a 800mm slasher it takes almost a day.

Purchased a tractor and 5ft 1.5 m slasher now no more bother just have to keep onlookers away

Looks ok but I don't like the fact it goes to 3.75" high, I think a slasher needs to go to at least 5" to be effective.
