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.
