What experiences have you had with tow behind mowers for your ATV? What brands are better than others? We are now living on a large lot that has about 3 acres of pasture to mow, but we don't have the budget for a tractor/mower.

I have a friend with a DR mower. It works outstanding. Works as good as a brush hog behind a tractor. I help him mow 22 ascres of grass and brush fields. It is pricey at $3,500 dollars, but it's worth the money.

Swisher makes a good trail finish mower and a rough cut trail mower to. My uncle has a rough cut trail mower and mows a 13 acre cow pasture with no prblems. I think the price is around $1,300.

I have not used the swisher mowers, but have seen them in action. The look to work pretty good also.

I would totaly use one of those if I had a big enough yard. I could get my lawn mowed in no time at 90mph.

Do the decks follow the ATV directly behind or is it sitting off to the side a little? My dad has alot of land to mow and I'm wanting to try to help him out.

Thanks!

Most pul behinds can be pulled directly behind or off to either side.

The only problem I see with using a quad to pull a mower is the lack of an open differential...a quad destroys lawns/grassed areas. Too bad the manufactures didn't design them with a bit more utility in mind and provide a locker in the rear for when you needed it.

I use my Vinson and Recon in the yard more than I use it for pleasure...they have both been work horses pulling trailers, yard carts and moving sod. As long as you make long turns the damage to the lawn is minimal...but when your lawn is maintained at 1/2" with a reel mower the damage shows up more.

They offer turf tires for ATVs and Polaris made the ATP with an open Diff. 1/2 cut height I would just concrete the yard.

This might be a little late, but maybe someone else might need what worked for me. I had 3 push mowers that i mounted on a weighted down triangle wooden frame, that cut a 6' wide path behind my Yamaha Warrior and would cut real well no matter how fast I went! I should have taken a video yet never thought about it back then. Really easy to build and didn't cost me anything! I only had a small lot so i dismantlement it years ago. My neighbors got a big kick out of how fast it cut!

      I know it is possible to live in a tent. Year round too. I do have solar panels for electric and a shower bag that's heated by the sun. Where can one go to do this. I have M.S and can't take this N.Y. crap. I need out. My family won't be coming with me. They are financially set for the rest of their lives.
       
      Again. Where can one go that's climate steady and friendly to my disability

      Happy New Year all! Remember not to operate any vehicles while under the influence, you could get busted or worse, you could get hurt or hurt someone else who's playing it safe and end up in jail. Have fun and be safe.

      Would installing a stock exhaust of a bigger atv in place of a stock exhaust of a small atv be a practical substitution to an after market exhaust?
      For example would i see any performance gains ( or losses) if i installed a stock exhaust from a 450cc atv onto my 350cc atv. After rejetting of course.
      Would it not make much difference? Possibly be worst then stock because of too much flow?

      I'm looking @ making a trailer for my Rincon to tow on the beach for over night fishing&camping trips. I was just going to use 2" right angel iron and expanded mesh. And then just make a basic box trailer and have it galvanized, but Id rather not have the wheels protruding out of the side. I want to use my two standed front wheels from the Honda, So dose anyone know here I can score an axle, hubs and springs ∨ tourtion bars from very very cheep Any Idea's Tips Tricks Things to look out for would be terrific Thanks

      We toyed witht he idea of using my friends Kia Rio to pull our quads down to Winchester Bay. Figured we could still get a good 20mpg out of it, but we decided that we didn't want to replace the clutch 2 or 3 times on the way down and back.
