Here is a photo of the 20" mower i used. it was really a test not a permanent solution so i wasn't upset or surprised when it blew up.

If you have walk-behind tractorish things, fabbing up a belt-drive deck. Often easiest to find with a non-running lawn tractor someone wants to be rid of - the decks without a non-running lawn tractor attached are usually a lot more beaten up, but you might find an oddball.

Or find/fab a belt-dive bicycle-rear-wheel nicely balanced mower. The setup where the engine is behind the wheels balancing the deck in front of them is nicely maneuverable with minimal weight on the front casters.

or just get another cheap/free pushmower. Paint the high rocks white so you miss them the next time.

Possibly modify with shortening the blade and putting "swinging tips" on - hinged to the core so there is some give when a solid object is encountered.

Or go where that's heading: an actual flail mower. Unfortunately less common and tending to expensive.

Being much more at the northern edge of ability to grow the stuff, my bamboo is quite easily kept in check by mowing right about now as the new shoots come up. If it were in more difficult terrain a machete or bush-axe might suit, especially when the new growth is still just tender shoots. Waiting until it gets old and hard yields poles (more like sticks here), but makes cutting it more of chore.

I have a very old mower that has a big disk sort of thing on it and that disk has 3 or 4 sickle mower sections rivets on it. It is set up like that mower you have in the picture. Bet it would do the job well. It has an old Clinton engine on it so that you know makes it for sure old.

Old,when i was real young, a friend was mowing with one of those mowers and one of the sickels came off and hit his left foot and they had to take his foot off. Those where dangerous mowers,thats where they got the idea for the new type hay mower. R.E.Lee

Ya but back then many things would be called dangerous but they still had them any how but then now days common sense is not near what it was back then either. That said have you ever seen what happen if you break a brush hog blade and it flies??? Well lets just say I guess I got lucky since all it hurt was the brush hog could not be used till the blade was replaced. Still after 10 plus year have not found that blade
