mowing with an atv

anyone use rear rough cut mower behind there atv? I was just wounder if they worked good and were worth the money. I would be mowing about 5 acres for a short peroid of time till funds allow for a new kubota. I guess i should add that the land is pretty flat. Also i'd be using an artic cat 700 to pull the mower.

I've never used a finish cut pull behind mower, but i've used a brush hog several times in the fields and woods. I would love to see how well a finish cut does, but yeah they are a bit pricy and i've heard that it's a lot of wear and tear on the ATV. I think i'd just wait till i had the money for a new tractor.

Nevermind that, with a locker rear there would be a lot of wear and tear on your lawn.

They work great but you have to make a 40 point turn to keep from tearing the grass up unless you can unlock the rear end or do like i did last season and pull one of the half shafts out of the rear. and about the wear issue i don't think it would hurt it one bit because all your doing is pulling a little rolling weight.
