    The mowers you are looking at are finish mowers, for the work you will be doing a rotary cutter or bush hog is probably needed. I have a 4 acre field i was cutting with a husky 48" ZTR and 54" husky rider. i would have to cut it every 4-5 days to keep it manageble, otherwise it would take 8 hours with multiple cuts trying to get it knocked down.

    I would be cutting grass with a ZTR, Them slopes look mean for a tractor.

    Yes, it's a real outhouse, but there is no latrine beneath it, so it's more of a decoration.

    Pretty much everything that needs to be mowed is on a slope - hardly any flat spots.

    I just moved here in November, so I have never cut it. I didn't see myself what the previous owners were using, but to hear my wife describe it, it was nothing more than a big box rider. I don't really know.

    Whatever you decide to buy had best be quite robust in the hydro trans , and be serviceable . You are going to generate alot of heat mowingand that will kill a light duty unit . Have you ever mowed this place , and with what ? Very nice place , love the crapper .
