Does anyone have any thoughts on offset pull behind mowers? I have 4 acres and currently use a john deere x485 with 62" cut. I would like to mow in less time than the 2-1/2 hours it currently takes. I only have 8 trees, small pond and a creek. Most of yard is wide open and flat.

buy two and run them on either side, or use reel mowers, cheaper and less problems

Here is a Swisher with a 60" cut. I didn't see any reviews on it tho. Supposed to be able fully offset it. Looks like you would have to move the hitch to a different mount.

how much do you want to spend you could get some thing like this and then you could get a sickle mower to do your pond edges

and you could sell the other attachments if you don't need them

I like the reel mower idea. How would you sharpen a reel mower. Any ideas on a reliable brand?
