I'm considering the purchase of a late model C with hydraulics mainly to mow 1 acre of yard. I would install a 3 point hitch and purchase a rear mount mower.

The unit I'm looking at comes with a 5 ft pull type mower , two bottom plow , cultivator , and planter.My questions are as follows:

-Will the C be a good choice with the mounted mower or should I just purchase a lawn tractor.
-How much will I have to pay for the 3 point hitch and a good mounted mower.
-What is the tractor(bueatifully restored) and implements worth and finally
-Can I sell the implements since I don't have a use for them and what would the lot ( plow , drag mower , cultivator , and planter ) be worth?
Thanks for any insight

I ran a C on a 6' back mower last year, and burned it up. unless you yard is long and narrow you'll find it almost impossible to do the corners, so you'll need a rider anyway. C's don't turn well with the back mower, and won't want to pick one up on the 3 point. They don't have enough power to be happy with over 5' of mower, and the factory hydraulics are marginal for a 3 point. A nice C is about $1500 (unless it's wide front, add $250), a perfect one is $2500, a beater is $800-1000. Adding a 3 point (never installed at the factory) runs $350-450.
I also have a B with a 5' Woods belly mower, that works great. THese mowers are about $2000. I still use a rider to do edges and corners. I'm mowing 5 acres of flat and straight lawn - I bought a 18 horse 48" rider for edging, a 6' finish mower for the main body, and a 34HP tractor to drive it, because the B/C gearing was too slow in first and skipped spots in 2nd.

From personal experience - for 1 acre, buy a 48" hydrostat mower and be happy.

Cultivator - $75 if all there
Mounted sickle mower - $250 operable
Pull behind - $100-$500 depending on condition and if finish or "brush hog"
Plow - $100

If you just want to mow 1 acre I would say get a good used wheel Horse or other name brand garden tractor. I use a CA with a 72" deck and in a small yard it can be hard to do a good job. A garden tractor with a 48" deck should work well for that size yard.

Thanks for the response. My mind tells me your right-on.A lawn tractor is the best alternative but it sure is boring.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
