Mower Question

Posted by flapper z4 MN (My Page) on

I have a 3 acre planting in it's 3rd growing season. Eventually I would like to mow parts of it instead of complete spring burns to help out the insect populations, etc. Does anyone have experience with mowers of the size that a Ford 8N could handle? I'd like to know what type of mower would work best on prairie vegetation. These would be primarily spring mowings on tallgrass prairie with quite a lot of forbs. Thanks!

RE: Mower Question

the best mowers are called 'flail' mowers.

as to ur tractor, head to the local farm implement co and ask about a flail.
