All good ideas. I'd try to go for turf tires, if possible. A unit finish mower on 3 point is a way to go also. I've seen some bush hogs do a nice job even. especially if you want to do it every couple of weeks. as mentioned www.tractorbynet.com is a good and very active bulletin board. Good people, just like here. www.tractorhouse.com is a good site to see whats out there for tractors and prices.
