It'll be cheaper to just find a used front guard.

For serious brush-hogging, you don't want any guard on the front. The name of the game is letting all the debris (of which there will be a lot) out of there ASAP. As well as making it easier to get at the big stuff like rose bushes.

It does mean you have to be a bit more careful what's in the line of fire, but as long as you're out away from the house and the dog, there's generally not much of a hazard there.
