5. Maybe go to an estate auction,

or see if any of the local golf courses have any mowing equipment to sell used. Or see if the county will do it!

That's too bad about the local businesses and people being so prejudiced. You'd think, being money-loving teabaggers and all, that it wouldn't matter what the politics of someone would be. Money is money, and it is their god after all. I hope you were able to get your tree taken down, too. I got many hours in tree feeling growing up because we had an oak disease take out almost all of our trees. It's tough (and dangerous) work.

Yard maintenance crews might also have used mowers, though if they're getting rid of one, it likely doesn't work at all. Ask at any of the mower maintenance shops in your area if they have anything used or refurbished. Or if they know how to set up something like you originally asked

It's too bad robot mowers cost so much. I've just read about models that can mow up to five acres!
