myself, I'd take the dearborn. We have the 7 foot model (can't remember #) the farmer we rent hunting property from gave us a 5 gal bucket full of old blade teeth from his combine for it and she cuts the ditches around camp with ease. I've seen it cut through saplings that were 1" thick. will say though it is a real pain in the @#$ to mount it when we need it. we have 3 N's we use to mow the ditches, perimeter, and woods trails of about 600 acres that we lease for hunting. takes us about 2 to 3 days to cut mowing all day.

That's a lot of work and am glad to hear the N's are up to it. I was thinking these might be more maintenance per job that they are worth but maybe not because like the tractors they seem pretty simple. I was over at a friends scrap business earlier. he has a bar rake and a seed planter for me that his dad used years ago and he said he gets sickle mowers all the time and will put all the ones aside that he gets for me.

He also has another tractor for me if I want it . it might be enough to work better with the baler than my N's. it has a better loader than my freeman too. Not really sure what it is, he said International ... t's marked McCormick so I guess they are the same company. it's diesel though and hopefully more HP than my N's it looks like live hydraulics too.

Anybody recognize this?
