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

Today's Featured Article - A Farmall Restoration Story - What's Been Done So Far - by Sean Brinston. This is a story of my first real tractor restoration. My name is Sean Brinston and I was 15 almost 16 at the time of this.My neighbour directly across the road who I had helped with hay all the time had this tractor sitiing at his house for what I thought was 6 years. Finally I got the money and courage to ask him. I phoned him and he said it was already sold, eight years ago! ... [Read Article]
