    What is the best piece of equipment to mow 10+ acres every site, mow to a minumum of 6" and up to a 25% grade? With rocks around and washouts at times.

    Yep...........
    I'm guessing there are retention ponds included or it is a general contract in which ponds are a part of the properties.
