Please dont laugh at my idea. I was wondering if anybody else has done this. I have about 6 out of the 10 acres that I keep mowed at my house. I have a 02 Toro Z100 44". I was thinking of buying 2 cheap push mowers, taking the handles off, and welding them approx. 40" apart. Then making a tongue and pulling behind my Z. That would give me approx. 80" of cut path. I have very few turns and trees are spaced out enough that turning wont be a problem. My place is also as flat as a pancake. I know it might look ******* but I live out in the country and hardly anyone would see my contraption. I dont see spending $1000+ for a towbehind area mower when this should do the trick for about $250. I would never dream of taking this thing off the place. Can someone give me an idea if this will work. It would speed up my mowing time and that way I have more family time.

Go to your Toro dealer and see if your Toro Z100 44" has an optional PTO package, this way you can just buy a 7' bushhog. If not, I your idea sounds great if you are very mechanically inclined.

It's has been done. I saw a picture on here a while back of a similar set up.

In a magazine called "farm show" there was a story and pic of a line ithnk 9 21" mowers pulled behind a craftsman lawn tractor. Each moer was offset from the one in front of it iwth a few inches overlap. the whole thing would snake around turns as tight as the tractor could make. Looked really goofy though.
