This mower has been beat, clearing 20 acres of timber and brush the previous owner threw it into the deal when I bought the tractor
I plan to add caster wheels on the front corners, since I mowed the whole property with a 318 and a Murry Yard king, there is little I need a brush hog for.

i keep telling you my 9 acres is one big hill, this shot shows about an 80 ft drop over about 1/8th mile.
My property line to the east is abour 100 ft from the buildings you see.

Is your property line the first line of trees at the bottom of the hill? Or are those buildings yours?

About 60-80 feet to the near side of the barn(the barn still belongs to the original owners of the property before it was sub divided in 1968) is the property line(past the trees) they are along a waterway. There is good grass east of the waterway and I harvest it as mulch for the garden.
My property runs to the west along the fenceline beside the implements The implemets are about half way across the property(along the back fence) and the hill drops off the the west.
I'll probably post pictures from that direction later this week. I'm on vacation this week and will try to take some more. I'm going to be somewhat annoying about posting pictures, repetition helps things stick in my head.

In fact this is not a clear picture(taken into the sunset) but does show the west slope in the background. I'll get some better this week.
The west property line runs along the trees( the enviable white shed is my neighbors). Right over the steering wheel is the shed I moved onto the property in Auguast.
Come to think of it I was supose to post pictures of that too.
