    There is a reason they are using sickle mowers on road ditches. No idea what they charge. SD DOT and counties generally do all their own mowing in South Dakota.

    The DOT is now using 15 foot batwing type mowers and either Case IH, John Deere or Challenger tractors with Cabs and A/C and safety shields.
