Default Anyone pulling a mower ??

I have been eyeball'n the pull behind mowers at tractor Supply & was curious if anyone has tried one & how good (or not) of a job it done ?

If one of the mowers actually does a good job & holds up it meens I can buy another Foreman instead of a lawn mower.

the ones from tractor supply probably have a chineese motor on them and it wont last lol that kinda stuff never does. i see mowers like that advertised on tv tho but cant think of a brand name. just do a google search for them

my neighbour rigged up a tongue comming off the front of his lawnmower and just hooks it on the trailer hitch of his 250 big red and mowes his lawn with that. it does the trick.

I spent a couple hours search'n last night for reveiws & youtube videos, seems the Tractor supply units get mixed reveiws, some negative input about the belts, vibration issues & the most common was where the tongue hooks to the ATV seems to be a weak spot but can be a simple fix, on the bright side it got some good marks also & most of the youtube videos were posative.

Also found a brand I handnt heard of, Kuntz it was, its a smaller company that produces some good ol USA machines, most of the youtube searches showed it doing a good clean job, only draw back they were kind of pricey to the point of new (middle range) mower pricey, but if it last its all good, love buy'n me some made in the USA equipment.

A good friend of mine bought the swisher one from Tractor supply years ago and he's never had a problem with it. I know it is like a 10.5hp briggs engine. His is a 44" cut. He says it works great and has no problems with it.
