We have a fairly large pine windbreak that is about 12 years old now, and we are looking for a good way to keep the grass around them mowed. The branches hang down just low enough where a push mower is is a big hassle to wrestle with. A weed whacker works, but is alot of work. My wife doesn't want to trim the trees, and likes the grass around them so mulching and trimming the trees are not good options. I'm wondering if a small sickle bar would work?? I have a 3 point and rear PTO on my X748. Does any of you know of such a beast that would work on the X748? a sickle would also be good for mowing our creek bank. I've thought about those pull behind offset mowers, but I don't want another small engine to maintain.
