Taming the paddock with my bush mower
Posted By: bobbotron, 06-25-2018, 01:50 PM

We have nothing using the paddock at the moment, and the weeds and grass have become huge. Decided to make a path it in today for access.

Looks like that wee machine has got it's work cut out for it.

You do know that sheep work pretty well too for this sort of thing.

Ah I can almost feel the chaff sticking to my sweaty hide but strangely feel no envy . This is too realistic for a retired carpenter .

It might be wee, but it's mighty! Mows 6' tall grass quite well, it's good fun too.

The idea is to put goats in here eventually. In the meantime, I am trying to clear it up near the fence lines.

Really 6 feet? wow, that's quite a beast of a machine then.

Well they will eat any thing that grows back.

I honestly find this pretty fun. The BCS is a "two wheel tractor" and you're mostly just walking behind it, watching it obliterate anything it runs over. It's gear driven, you don't realize it weighs 300 pounds most of the time, until you try to pull it somewhere when it's not in gear!
