We have a lot of undulating grass to cut at a low height and currently use two triple-decked rotary ride-on mowers but it means a lot of care is needed as it is easy to cause scalping and leave some grass too long. It is also taking a long time to carry out each cut. We have a compact tractor and have thought about articulating mowers, but they seem to be quite pricey. Would it be worth the investment?
