18″ Honda® Powered Heavy Sod Cutter

18`` Honda® Powered Heavy Sod Cutter

If you need a machine that can cut and roll up to 3-acres (1.2 hectare) of sod a day, the Heavy-Duty Sod Cutter is exactly what you need. Large enough to get big jobs done and small enough to be portable, this cost-effective, attachment ready unit is perfect for large jobs like sports fields or small size turf farms that do not have enough room for a harvester. The Heavy-Duty Sod Cutter is a fully commercial unit that takes sod cutting to the next level. *A Ride on Sulky-Roller is available for purchase separately.
