We have a few acres of land -some of which we have cut for hay and some of which we leave to grow and only cut once a year. It is a tad fiddly as there are a fair few trees etc. I currently use a bar mower to cut the once a year bit (an acre or so) - but of course I then have to heave all the mown grass somewhere - a fair job, even using my truck.... I was thinking of getting a compact tractor plus maybe a flail/collector. I thought this would let me cut the once-a-year bit (and drop the cuttings conveniently) plus in the future perhaps I could add a powered hedgecutter (500 yards hedging) and maybe other accessories (maybe even do my own baling in due course etc)
I am open to suggestions on what to get - and what I should expect to have to pay.
I would prefer to buy new at a good price - not fixed on a particular make - although I would prefer something mainstream that will likely be around in 10-20 years time.. so top quality as a fair price
