Hi Phil... Looking good Bear in mind i'm not a farmer (a man outstanding in his field), but im pretty sure that doing it the way you are really needs a front topper. With your rear one you do it driving in reverse to get the whole width of cut without ruining the front of the tractor until its short enough. This will also allow you to reverse up to the slope and let the topper drop down the slope using the jockey wheel.
Hmmm - - - - re: 'ruining the front of the tractor' well - - - then a couple of points.
1. You've let things grow up too much already - - - should have done things earlier
2. Tractors were built to work - - - - not just to look pretty (aka automobiles - - - primary function is to look pretty - - - - a tertiary function is its trasportative functions).
If you have such large brushes that there could be equipment damage - - - - well then you are using either the wrong equipment or the wrong control system.
(One who was involved in the clearing of brush some 30 to 45' tall from quite a few acres - - - - grin - - - didn't use no Fordson though - - - - would have taken far too long - - - lol.)
