HI, Nice site. I own 6.7 acres and I keep it mowed with a 1954 Ford Jubilee and a 5ft bush hog. Takes about 3-4hrs to cut. I am about to buy a home on one acre. What I am looking to do is sell the tractor and buy something that will mow both lots. The 6.7 acre piece of land and the one acre that my home will be on. I have about $3,000 to spend. I know it's not much but with buying a new home, I'm on a budget. I know I'll probably have to buy used. So which mowers/brands hold up the best. I mean which mower would you buy given the budget and the amount of grass that needs to be cut.? The 6.7 acres is cut every 2-3 weeks. The home lot will be cut every week.
