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.

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!

That would be fun. I am with Bot on this if I had enough land I would love one.

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!

      The small waterline insert for the hose that goes from the water pump cover to the thermostat housing has corroded off. I only need the insert on top and behind the thermostat housing that the hose goes over and can't find just the insert. It looks like it may be pressed in. I've have been told the entire motor housing needs to be replaced. The pic with the red line indicates where the hose and insert would be and the insert looks like the pic of the water pump  Any ideas would be really appreciated.

      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.
