What is general tractor mowing?
The term “tractor mowing” is self-explanatory; at its basic level, it is mowing with a tractor mower. The confusing part about general tractor mowing is the word “general.” Why include that word when talking about mowing with a tractor mower? Usually, the word general is used to denote a mowing job done for a customer. There really is no other reason for using it. Most commonly we see that word in Google searches, but it has no other significance.
What is generally tractor mowing used for?
Having said that, tractor mowing is called for when the mowing job is too large to handle with a residential walk-behind mower or even a residential riding mower.
How large is that? At Keith’s Tractor Mowing, we only accept jobs of one acre or larger. Only large jobs can justify the transportation of the tractor mower to the job site.
A tractor mower is an efficient mowing machine, capable of mowing upwards of fifteen acres in an hour, making them one of the more efficient pieces of farm, ranch, or commercial equipment. When time is money, and efficiency is the key to the job ahead of you, a tractor mower will do the job quickly.
Who is qualified to do those tasks?
The only drawbacks to a tractor mower, from the viewpoint of a property owner, is the cost and the training necessary to operate safely and efficiently one.
The cost is prohibitive. Top level tractor mowers can cost upwards of $100,000, making them a luxury for many small farms or ranches. The weekend rancher will want to think twice before doling out that kind of cash for a piece of equipment used once per month for one hour each use. Considering the fact that you can hire a commercial mowing company for $100 per hour, it would take a lifetime of mowing to justify spending a hundred grand.
Regarding training, safety should always be first. A large tractor mower is not a toy. It requires specific training by a certified instructor. We cannot emphasize this point too much. If you are not trained you really should not attempt to operate any large piece of equipment. The emergency rooms across this country are filled with weekend warriors taking on too much risk with too little training/expertise.
