 Best Tractor for mowing 11 acre field

Anyone have insight as to the best tractor for mowing an 11 acre field? There are minimal grade changes but the grass and weeds get quite thick. Maximum utility for minimum price (max in the $8500 range)

For about half this much money you can get an old 8N or 9N Ford in creampuff condition. Since you don't want a loader and don't need 4wd, you would be better served with an old American tractor in refurbished condition. Then you add a good bush hog or finish mower....or even both. Still way under your budget. Those old Fords are a smooth quiet-running tractor, comfortable seat, and much less bouncy than a compact diesel over bumps. Other models to consider would be the massey Ferguson T-20, the International Harvester A, C, or H. and the John Deere H, 40, 420, and 430 - to name but a few. But the Ford is probably the favorite. All of these makes have their attendent owner's organizations complete with magazines, parts, and advertisements of restored tractors for sale. And having mowed with old American and compact tractors both, I prefer the more comfortable tractors. Roger

I spent half that much on a MF 35 (diesel) and a new brush hog (Rhino). 38hp and 3800 lbs and it never hesitates in mowing 18 acres of grass and tall thick weeds. I will be buying a 6' grader (angle) blade soon to maintain my gravel drive. I just about took the plunge on a new compact but for my use I'm glad I didn't. I don't use my tractor for business and I don't need it everyday so I feel financially smarter when it is sitting. I am glad I spent a little more on the new Rhino. It does a nice job.
