    To ride or not

    I have a 1.4 acre property that i gotta mow on a weekly basis. I purchased a Honda self propelled mower in 2016 for grass duties. The mower has done great since day one but I did have to customize the wheels for traction cuz my yard has some steep hills. It takes two hours to mow and is impossible to make a straight line anywhere (if that explains how hilly it is).

    Lately the mower has been grinding on turns and on spots where traction is needed. Seems like gears are starting to strip or whatever but it still does the job.

    I am starting the search for an upgrade to this mower. I know (p)Irate is old school old shit loving but is there anything modern out there that will tackle hills and cut my lawn without breaking like a pretzel or would sticking with (fixing) the self propelled push be the best route?

    No to any zero turn shit cuz those things are too big for my lawn.

        hook it up behind your car and enjoy comfortable seats and air conditioning?

        i dunno, i've only got <1/4 acre of mowable grass and that is about too much for me. is maintaining less of it an option? rent a mower once a year after the spring growth to maintain the rest of it?

              Get some goats, automatic constant lawn mowers that fertilize as they go.

              Bonus, you can do goat yoga with the extra fag time you have left over from not cutting the grass.

                  Sheep are excellent foragers, can help maintain even grass growth.

                  But remember to rotate around property to avoid worms/parasite issues-

                        I fail to see how a zero turn with a 36-48" deck would be "too big". I used to mow 1.5ac with a Hustler Raptor w/ 48" deck and it was way too small.

                          Is it purely grass? Or is there rocks and trees ect?

                            I mow about an acre of grass with a 42" raptor. It's perfect.
