Overgrown Power Line Right Of Way MowingOne of the major causes of power disruptions and outages are trees and vegetation that come in contact with the power lines. Trees or brush that touch electric lines can create short circuits that cause your power to go out. That is why most power companies contract out regular vegetation maintenance of the right of way (ROW). We’ve been asked to help out the local power company by clearing the right of way next to some power lines. In order to reach and remove this area of massive growth, it requires compact equipment. So today, we’re doing everyone’s favorite job, Tough-cutting. We have the Ventrac 4520P (Kawasaki engine) with a mid-mount weight kit installed, Tough Cut brush mowing deck, dual wheels, and canopy with fan. This patch of out-of-control brush and grass is the perfect size for the Tough Cut to handle; the growth is green and stemmy but also woody, and the small saplings and bushes have a ½”-¾” diameter. The Tough Cut will clear out this 40-foot by 130-yard area easily and efficiently. The mid-mount weight kit gives the tractor added downforce on the front wheels and ultimately better traction overall. In addition, the dual wheels provide further stability on steep inclines and sloped terrain. On the Tough Cut deck, we have the capability to hydraulically flip up the deck to work on it if needed. And the canopy with a fan adds to operator comfort. Because the FlexFrame hugs the terrain so well and the tractor articulates and oscillates, it is able to crawl up, over, and around the mounds of earth that have been formed near the electric poles throughout the right of way. This job was safely and efficiently completed by a single operator in 2 hours.
