Best mower for timothy grass
I work for an animal sanctuary, and we're sitting on about 3.5 acres. We have a couple of fields of timothy grass (probably 1.5 acres in total) - once used for grazing horses, and now simply parking for events days.
We did have a John Deere X125 ride-on, which broke several times due to (potentially) the overgrown field being too tough on it, or (more likely) improper usage by the people using it.
I'm looking for a mower capable of staying on top of grass that in all likelihood won't be mowed particularly often - possibly every month. It also needs to be fairly easy to use, since the people mowing are generally volunteers.
Our budget is about 1.5K, and I'm at a complete loss as to which type of mower would be most suited for our purposes. I've looked into brush cutters (specifically Sherpa Bravos, I think) and power scythes, but simply think this machinery is too powerful for what we need. The mower needs to be capable of cutting through very overgrown grass, however.
I'd be really grateful for any advice.
