Ok . The main question is what would you use if you had to mow this? Im currently looking to upgrade my equipment to mow the 3.5 acs. of what can best be described as slopped wooded terrain. (see photo) Some conditions do exist that will make a difference. We are located at the bottom of the slop so to speak and most of the water run-off winds up in our property thus creating some soft spots. That said I cut now at twice per week (spring) and in the summer down to once per week. At times I do need to mow when the lawn is not as dry as I would like it so I am torn between gear or hydro drives.. I am not adverse to walking but would like the options to be carried . I definitely would like to move to a commercial grade product with a 48 cut. You input and recommendations will be appreciated.
