Best mower for towing?

OK, I need a zero-turn suitable for towing a brush cutter. But not acres and acres. A small area. Also, what's a good towable brush cutter?

OK, give it to me!

Thanx Much!

You arent gonna find a ztr equipped to tow a pto powered brush cutter ANYWHERE. Gotta have a large tractor for that feature.
Not to entirely disagree, but I THINK they make small tractors with small brush-cutter attachments ... Something like this:

Now you got your compact tractor, you need a compact brush-cutter, like this:

(Keep in mind one is Ford the other is John Deere, but you get the idea).

To be quite honest, I'd look for an older used 52" - to 60" Wb in the $1,000 range, you can take those older Toros through the woods and the fields without much further ado, I've cut horse pasture with my old one before.

And maybe I'm crazy, but would THIS work:

If you're still kinda wondering, here's the whole slew:

First of all, we neeed to know his dedinition or idea of a "brushcutter", because this type of pull behind finish will NOT cut brush and/or high weeds very well.

They do make a true "brush hog" tow behind with it's own engine. Sorry no pictures. Try looking at farm equipment supliers. If you want to mount it to a Z you're going to have to fabricate something. Also you'll need a plexiglass shield mounted behind you. Brush cutters tend to hurl things from under the deck.

Hello,

I need info on a zero-turn for my yard that can pull a Swisher-type brushcutter for grown-up area(the back 9 acres) a couple times a year.
No PTO tractors.

Thanx for info.
