Have a chance to do some horse trading for a 3 point finish mower 5 or 6 footer. From what little I have looked at it seems to be in good shape. How well do they work to mow a lawn?? Only reason i am thinking about it is that I have to make sure my moms lawn is mower and the nephews and the boy do not seem to want to do it any more so I may have to do it and a finish mower might be the ticket to getting it done fast and easy

I have seen some pretty nice ones go pretty cheap in my neck of the woods. Lots of people are going to the zero-turns, there doesn't seem to be the demand for them that there once was. I would agree with 5-6 hundred for one. For what its worth, I found if you go much bigger than 5 ft they don't do as nice of a job especially on an uneven lawn.

I haven't been actively shopping around for one, but 500/600 sounds right for what I've seen whenever I happen to see a well used, but serviceable one.

I have a BMB finish mower works great, but since the trees have growed so much can't get the tractor among them. Did have to mount a big spring on the lift arms so would float. Don't have wheels on front corners.

at auctions, $500-600 for good used one.

old,

I have a 6 foot Bush Hog brand finishing mower that I pull behind my 1973 Ford 2000 tractor. The mower does a good job overall if you keep the blades sharp and don't try to drive too fast.

The down side is that have to do a lot of trimming if you have any obstacles in the lawn (trees, flower beds, lilac bushes, flagpoles, bird feeders, etc.). You can imagine driving your tractor around in your front yard.

I THINK I paid around $1,000.00 when I bought my mower new about six or seven years ago.

Good luck,

Tom in TN

No way in the world I could use it in my front yard but then I have something like 10 raised garden beds in the yard and a few trees. My moms yard on the other hand is pretty much a big open area with a few areas that would need to have the push mower to finish up in but that would not be all that hard to do. Been having the boys do it with a riding mower but the one that was doing it go in trouble and is in Jail now

My daughter has about an acre and a quarter of yard and she mows it with a 5ft. finishing mower that she bought from TSC. It does almost as good as a riding mower and it's a heck of a lot faster.

Prices in other posts sound right, but depends on condition. I repaired a rusted deck on one, then got a new one. A rear discharge works better, spreads the clippings out more. The better mowers have a fairly thick deck and will cut faster due IMO to the heavy deck keeping down vibration. Wheels at all 4 corners are necessary to keep from scalping. A roller in the middle front keeps down the scalping too. They cut better if the rpms are kept up high. A 6 foot mower is better so that you are cutting over the tractor tracks.

Sharp blades are a must. An air wrench is required to break loose the blade nuts. I never could figure a way to hold the blades and loosen with a wrench. Be careful getting under the deck.

Keep the belt tight. A little bit of slipping and you need a new belt.

A zero turn mower will cut rings around a finish mower, but you have to pay serious money for a good ZTR, and I don't think a cheap one is worth having.

A finish mower is not a bush hog, they don't like tree sprouts.

I hated mine but I was trying to mow with a Super C, every time I needed to slow down(slip the clutch a little)the blades stopped. I believe you really need a live power take off to be happy with one.
