    what is the tallest grass you could(would) cut with a 32",36",48" walk behind. even if you had to go over several times. i have a field, i would say, its up to my waist. is that asking too much? in the 12 - 15 hp range.

    Is it yours or is it a rental? ha ha , You need a bush hog. Waist high is too much to ask of a mower. Hire some "day laborers" and equip them with slingblades.

    yes that is too too much for 12-15hp you would need at least a 23 or 24hp to do that. The only walk behind that I know could do that is the super walk behind from hustler it comes in 48 and 54in with a 23 or 25 hp kaw. or exmark has a 60in that could do it

    Rent a bushog/ brush cutter.
    Billygoat, Ferris and I'm sure lots of others build a walk behind rough mower.
