I picked up a used 2018 model year 60" mid mount mower deck for the BX Kubota.
I also got a John Deere X700 Ultimate Garden Tractor.
It has the 23 HP liquid cooled Kawasaki gas engine in it. (62" deck and loaded rear tires)

We've decided to mow the entire field surrounding the cabin. (several acres)
Mowing the old farm pasture frequently with a finish mower turns it into decent quality lawn.
It looks nicer, reduces brush fire risk, and cuts down on the ground bees.
I'm going to try both machines and see which one I like better.
I already know which machine is easier to haul.

I was doing the cabin site mowing with a vintage John Deere LX172 riding mower. (14 HP, & 38" deck)
Every time I mowed, I did just a little bit more ground.
(I was mowing only about half of the total field area)
At the end of last year's mowing season it had become a chore, and took up most of a day.

The JD X700 gobbles gasoline, while hauling the fuel sipping BX Kubota, it uses a lot of tow vehicle gas.

The BX Kubota requires the double axle steel trailer.

The JD X700 can be hauled on the single axle aluminum trailer.

Decisions... Decisions...
