    Default help in field mowing

    I take care of: ! As you know I bought a zd 331 which replaced my Husky iz48 18 hp about 2 years ago. I have a m5400. I mow fields 2 to 4 times a year with. The grass gets to be knee height in some places and will be a tall fescew or a love grass which is the devil to cut! Not all of its 12" SOME is 8 " They want these fields turned into more like lawns but of course don't want to spend the money. I have been looking at belly mowers and some different 30 hp B 3030. tractors on line. Your zd does a great job but recently I blew a belt & then a gear box went. I am into it for $1800. I am disappointed that it was out of warrantee by a few months and its a major hit! But I am not sure if that is the way to go or get a woods or smilers finish mower tow behind the 5400. If I go that way I may really need different tire the my ag's. The tow behind I have a single bb72 that works good but in rough. I have thought the DS96/MDS96 Multi-Spindle Cutters might be a good way too? This letter I wrote to my dealer. Does any one here have a though, thx. Mac respond here or

    Please type flail mower in the search box and read all
    the posts and threads.

    If you purchase a flail mower sized for your M5400 you will
    have no issues mowing this acreage.
