 Looking for a Compact diesel to mow 9 acres

Currently mowing about 9 acres of clear, flat, weedy land with a Sears lawn mower. Takes me about a week to cut it! Have been looking into a MF-1240 or a Kubota L2600, with 4wd, loader, and cutter. Would also like a loader for snow removal (about 1000 ft of dirt driveway) and light landscaping. Unfortunatly price is a major consideration. Any ideas?

 Looking for a Compact diesel to mow 9 acres

i have a jd 970 and a 7 foot farmking finishing mower. i usually spend less than 5 hours to do app 5 acres. i used to use a 5 foot mower and spent alot more time, anyone want to buy a good 5 foot mower? i can't imagine mowing with anything less than a 7 foot mower. just in case you are thinking of the 7 foot farmking, it cuts like it were made in heaven, on the downside i have had a few minor problems that the factory rep is helping with (wheel update, hitch point reinforcement, wheel attachement reinforcement).

That brings me to another question. My sears lawn tractor a 46" mulching deck with 3 blades. I don't mulch but the deck clogs if it rained a month ago! This makes me wary about using belly mowers, and I'd probably end up using a light-duty bush hog. Any ideas or comments on how your mower works?

 Looking for a Compact diesel to mow 9 acres

Frank, for four and a half years, I mowed nearly 3 acres with a 38" cut Cub Cadet riding mower with a Kohler engine. It was a fine little machine, but the one big complaint I had was grass, dirt (mud) build up under the deck no matter how dry it was (I tried everything I could think of and even sandblasted and repainted the bottom of the deck twice with different kinds of paint, but nothing helped much). Sometimes I couldn't even wash it out; had to use a putty knife to dig it out. Last August when I traded my B7100 Kubota for a B2710, I also got rid of the Cub Cadet and bought a Bush Hog 60" rear discharge finish mower. The larger size not only cut my mowing time in half, but I've even mowed a couple of times after rains when there were still some puddles, and while there's occasionally a little build up under the deck, there's very little and it's much easier to clean out with either the air hose or the garden hose.

the 84 inch farmking with 3 blades will mow in the rain. it has some rather unique baffles that seem to keep the underside very clean. i have owned a few mowers that take longer to clean than one spends mowing. the farmking is not one of them.
