Rick, I think you need to buy it. I would consider such a thing if I were a few years younger to trim fields for farmers. As tractors and combines get higher and higher the old fence rows are getting wider and wider. While a lot of them have been removed to make the fields bigger the ones between farms remain. I think it could be made into a small business. Vern

Are you sure you weren't driving the plow truck too? :)

They used the pasture beside our shop last summer as a base to gas up and fly from while mowing power line right a ways in our area. Really surprised me just how many times he gassed up each day spending well over 8 hours cutting the pilot had to be tired.
They spent about a week there and one return trip included a chain link fence gate wrapped around the cutter bar.
