Awesome, didn't even know this area of TTS existed. Great seeing others enjoying mowing pasture like I do... except it's with a little JD I got off Craigslist with a 48" deck. It takes nearly a full day every 2 weeks to mow my property (4 acres, 3 is pasture, all flat, natural grassy/weedy), including weed-eating around the house, structures and fences, and I'd like to cut that time in half. I'm looking at something old, interesting, and reliable like a diesel MF or Ford 800N with a 60"+ brush hog. Not sure what kind for the hog, and I'm new at all of this. Just moved from the suburbs last winter and loving it, but still trying to find a way to properly manage everything. I'm hunting Craigslist on maybe a $5k budget. What would you do?
