    The atv needs to have a really low travel speed to work good for mowing. If you are doing large areas the big turning radius isn't a problem but on smaller areas it is. Might have to put turf tires on for damp or wet grass. The ones with a differential would be best so you don't tear up the lawn. <br> I have a Yamaha that I am considering trying this too but I am buying the mower for behind my Walker to increase the cutting width at school yards. <br> My suggestion would be to buy a cheap small older mower and pull the self engined mower with it.
