Looking for a sit on mower for my old man . If anyone could Recommended any would be much appreciated. We are in Notre-Dame de touchet Mortain
I bought one a couple of years ago - our local dealer was happy to negotiate on price.
If buying now I think I would probably buy a robot mower instead - the Husqvarna ones now are mighty impressive and a similar price to a ride-on but obviously they do it for you and when you are on holiday etc.
What kind of area are we talking about, is it open pasture, hilly, borders etc.
It’s over an acre with a hill of about 45 degrees and boards
I wouldn’t fancy that on a tractor! We have one part which is about 20 degrees that is referred to a suicide corner!
I would need about 3 miles of cable for that
The local dealerships install it for you - they have a walk along cart that does it.
Next time I will get one.
I went to buy something off leboncoin recently at a house with a large garden and I spotted they had a robot mower - in my best broken French we spoke for about 30 minutes about it - I was very jealous of the condition of their lawn compared to the state of ours.
Back to tractors though…
Buy some goats. As Mat has posted, 45° is too much for a proper, well balanced tractor and would be suicidal on a top-heavy ride on mower.
Never traverse a slope, only travel vertically up and down. But 45degrees is strimmer territory.
Hi guys . Thanks fir the heads on . We do have cows come on from time to time . And iv bin a bit mist leading it’s only on just over a quarter of the land is hilly the rest is flat
Self propelled mower for the hilly bits, ride on mower for the rest.
I have a couple, but the newest is a Alpina AT3 98A, I looked at Stiga the parent company but the Alpina are basically the same mower but between €3-400 less, so basically your paying for the Stiga name.
I use a 21" and 18" cut self-propelled mowers for any hilly bits or the bits the ride on finds difficult and due to a couple of the paddocks being quite wild at the beginning of the year with nettles and brambles, I cut with the self propelled and wheeled strimmer first and then the ride on mower the rest of the year.
If you’re using a ride-on mower on any sloping surface, get the agri-pattern tyres fitted on the rear wheels.
The block pattern ones are rubbish on anything but a flat, dry lawn.
