Default What mowers do you use for your food plots????

I am thinking about purchasing a DR tow-behind brush mower, to pull behind my ATV. I would like to know if anyone has evere used DR power equipment and what there thoughts are on it. What kind of mowers do you use? What would you suggest? I'm just starting and could use some help.... I have to use a tow behind because when the crops are up you cannot get a tractor there without tearing up the crops.... I have a total of 6 acres of food plots......

I have one of the original DR weedwackers when first came out. Not a bad machine. Does a good job wacking them weeds. I picked a old bushhog pull behind mower. The motor was blown, and I had to replace it. But I have about $350 invested in it, and it works good enough for what I need. I just pull it behind my atv like your looking to do. So I wouldn't hesitate to use something along those lines.

Thanks for the feedback, well it sounds encouraging although the price was steep, around $2600 dollars for the 17hp V-twin mower. If its reliable asI've heard you won't hear a complaint come from me, it will be money well spent.....
