Mowing weeds

Saturday I rented an 11hp “Billy Goat” brush mower from Best Rent All and spent about 5 hours this weekend mowing in and around the pasture. The horses are pretty picky eaters and the pasture is not well seeded, so there are areas where weeds and tree saplings are choking any grass that may want to grow.¬† Also around the pasture grass and weeds and lots of tree saplings¬† (maple, mostly) were really taking over.¬† That mower is great for stuff like that. The huge blade and powerful engine will shred weeds and saplings – no problem.

However – Sunday afternoon the drive belt broke on the mower. So When I returned it this morning I talked them into letting me have the mower for another half day on Friday, so I can finish up.
