tow behind mower
« on: July 19, 2020, 02:22:22 pm »
Anyone know where we might buy a tow behind mower with the blades driven by the wheels please? Single version of what generally seem to be referred to as gang mowers. But for not too much money! For towing behind small car. Ideally not too heavy either. For cutting perimeters of paddocks between electric fence and perimeter stock fence which are generally about 3-4m wide. Don't want a topper with independent engine etc as just more maintenance, cost, under cover storage and something else for scumbags to thieve! example image attached.

If you find two, I might be interested in the other one...

And if you find 3 hen's teeth towed mowers for decent money .....  :D

Actually, you have got me to thinking captainmark:  I might start keeping my eye out locally for a used gang mower set-up as well.

I'm loving the Ebay link, but I'm not sure they intend them to be used!

"also selling wheels for Garden ornaments £40 each"


What does it say about me that my first thought was "why would you want to put wheels on a garden ornament?"

it works. very heavy - you don't get engineered products like this any more!  just need to find an oil gun that fits now.  gear casing should I believe be oil not grease?  any thoughts on this appreciated please.  sprayed all over with penetrating/lubricating spray oil and covered in a tarp for the winter.
