For a slightly hilly yard a bit over half an acre, would I be better off getting a self-propelled push mower, or a riding mower/lawn tractor? My budget is a bit tight, so it'd have to be a cheap or used riding mower/tractor. The steepest part of the slope being maybe about 8-10' drop over about 45', so maybe 9-14 degrees.
I wonder if a rider is overkill, but a friend says her similarly sized lawn takes several hours, even with a riding mower.
Any advice would be appreciated!
