I will be preparing an overgrown field so that the landowner can plant grass. It currently has growth about 2-3feet high. We will go through it first and remove any large rocks that might be an issue. I'm planning on renting a brush cutter (the JD dealer calls it a 5' Gyromower) to first cut the growth down. Then I plan on running a JD 655 tiller over it to churn it up. Finally, I will run through it with my York rake to smooth it out and clean it up. I'm thinking after that, it will be ready to seed.
Sounds like a fun weekend but what do you guys think about my plan? Also, the only time I have ever used my PTO was for a posthole digger so any advice on running a tiller and/or mower like this would be appreciated.
