    put figures togther to purchase a tractor and brush hog. We have a lot of lots that are 2.5 and larger that they only want mowed 1 a month or so. Just to keep the city code guys off their backs. Just dont know if it worth it.

    My father bought a new Ford 3000 (3-cyl diesel) in 72. Paid 3,705.86 (9-13-72). Have been offered 6,500.00 for it. Won't ever sell it.

    Has worked hard it's whole life, and still runs like new. Can be a good investment. Picked up a new Deere "bush hog" last year for it.

    Look around for a used tractor with bushhog. I bought an old (70's) Ford 3600 with a 6' bushhog several years ago for $5,500.00 and have never regretted it. I am sure I can get my money back anytime I decide to sell it. There are always good used tractors around for sale.

    I have a Kubota B7500 with a 48" landpride rotory cutter. The tractor will cost you $13,000 w/loader, $1,100 for the rotory cutter. You might find a used one.
