    I currently use walkbehinds and ZTR to cut with. I have a few customers that need areas maintained every 10 to 14 days. Basically cut it down, nothing fussy. I have a JDeere 318 garden tractor that I might be able to get a grooming mower. (60" cut) What is a grooming mower and what is the quality of cut? These areas don't need brush hogging. A new mower/tractor is not going to happen now. I currently use my existing mowers but don't like pounding them on these properties. Any thoughts or comments? Thanks Matt

    Thanks for the reply. I checked out the website. The tractor is 18hp. The problem with buying aftermarket attachments is the PTO available for these is 2000rpm and not the standard 540rpm. Tha grooming mower I was looking at was made by John Deere and made for "their" PTO. This size tractor also has a cat.0 3 point hitch. Matt
