To be fair, I am sure that my land will not be difficult to mower assuming that I can get to it every week. But after shelling out thousands, I dont want to be double cutting 9 acres!
Can you guys tell me what model year this mower is? And of course, any input on the 24hp Honda's for power and reliability would be most appreciated.
Best way to decide is to demo the mower on your land. Cut and horsepower are important, but if you are mowing that much grass you are going to be spending a lot of time in the seat. You want a mower that doesnt beat you up when mowing and has a good suspension seat
