My neighbour uses a tractor mower without a cutting deck and knobbly tyres.

Honda all the way. Whatever you do, and however cheap it is, don't even think about one of the Chinese junkmobiles - Quadzilla etc. Absolute trash. Half the price of a decent one and 1% of the quality.

It's amazing what one of the manual gearbox agricultural Hondas will tow in 1st gear - I have moved a big military four-wheeled trailer full of hay bales with the old one on the farm (TRX350 born in about 1990). Stopping can be 'interesting' though

Thanks for the advice, I've bought a Honda, I'll pick it up later this week. Sounds like a bit of a project....
