Ozark, what do you know about the hydraulic ones? I looked at one the other day that had a hydraulic pump that was turned by the tractors PTO with lines running to each gearbox. I thought it looked like it may have been an old Hwy. Dept. rig. Price was right on it, but it was missing the gear box that went between the tractor and the mower pump that increased the PTO speed. Just was not really sure what I would be getting into with that one, and was kinda scared of it.
I'd like to find one a little closer to home, but if it was a deal I'd go that far. Don't go out of your way, but if you happen to be there anyway see what they want for it and shoot me a number....Thanks
Sorry it took a while to reply. I never been around a hyd. mower, but if you have the tractor horsepower to pull it, they are closer to being trouble free. You can get in over your head buying ones with missing parts. The AHTD uses them in other districts. Talking from experience, avoid a used highway dept. mower because right-of-way mowing is extremely hard on one,plus a lot of inexperienced operators. You will need at least a 50-70 hp tractor, the more the better. Any way i can help, let me know.
