 Which Kubota?

Just found this forum and was hoping for some advice.

I have roughly 2 1/2 acres to cut of my own and possibly 4 more for a friend. We both need light hauling and Base filled driveways to maintain.

As this area has many rocks, Tires would be a concern as well as which mower to choose?

Possibly like to offset costs a little by cutting some smaller lots in the area.

TIA
Dan

I would say the Kubota 2230 with R-4 tires would be a good choice. So would a Deere 4110 or 4115 or a 790 if you prefer a gearshift.

A kubota BX2230 or a B7510, B7610 or a B2410 if you have the money.

By the way I cut grass for a living. We don't like people who cut grass to pay for their equipment or put extra money in their pocket. All under the table. Which about 30% of people who cut grass do. While we are trying to make a living, pay insurance, taxes, etc. So if you plan to use it, you better get a business license and pay insurance. Or somebody will report you. I thought you might just like to know that.

itsgottobegreen, your last post was sooooo uncalled for and unprofessional! Reminds me of all the guys over on Lawnsite whinning about the same thing. What you make the vailed threat to do is to advocate or raise the suspicion ratting out someone to "Big Brother". That sword has two edges on it......... I sure hope your books and business practices are in order. What goes around comes around and your glass house breaks too. This sight is intended to be a community of folks sharing information in order to help each other out. NOT rat each other out!

Haveacigar, do EXACTLY as you mentioned. You are FULLY and LEGALLY able to do so. Cutting grass for your neighbors as a favor and accepting money to offset your costs for it is NO crime and a frequently done practice. Farmers do it all the time. It is when you get into several employees, chemical applications and large scale commercial mowing when you have to start playing "big brothers" silly games.

I agree with you on that one Chief.
Green, was you going to run the profit you made off trying to sell those light systems through your business or was that under the table?? As Chief said it is a double edged sword.

Totally ridiculous response!
I've paid for the proper INSURANCE coverage so I can (AND WILL) do work for others and pocket YOUR profits! How do you think a business gets started! Please. G

Green, we cut grass for a living (amongst other things) too. I encourage small owners & operators to cut for others.

The competition is no real threat to my business and it shouldn't be to yours either since as a 'pro' you must have 'pro equipment', right. Show me a CUT that will mow 6 or 8 acres an hour.

Do the math, a Kubota 2230 with a 60" MMM travelling at 5 mph would cover 26,400 feet an hour by 5 feet wide, or 132,000 square feet an hour, that is 3 acres an hour. If you consider that 3 acres an hour doesn't include turning around, navigating obstacles, slowing down, etc. then it's more like 2 acres an hour.

If that's competition to you then maybe you should think about changing fields.

Best of luck.

Last time I had a "Pro" cut my grass he gave my grass a case of the clap, er, rust fungus. That stuff is a bear to get rid of. Apparently he didn't bother washing his mowers. If I had to have somebody mow my grass now I'd rather have a neighbor do it than a pro.
