    I am looking at a job in Trim, theres about an acre or two most, its rough grass, ie tall, strong.
    Anyone know of someone who might do it for me, ie mow, bale.

    Or someone with a zero grazer??

    Might suit someone with small equipment.

    Gateway is too small for a fusion, so I need someone with smaller kit. To far away to use our own, zero grazer, or mower and old krone wagon; murphys law!! Just thought this job would suit someone with smaller kit.

    I've updated the title to reflect the county, hopefully someone local will know of someone that can do the job. All the best!

    Just thinking if you only want it cleaned off you could be better off getting someone to mulch it.

    I know around here if you were giving away a garden of grass for cutting it would attract every sort of a gobshyte.

    We did a few jobs like that, if the area isn't too big a few runs of the trimmer head of the hedgecutter will leave it in dust and clean all the rough scrub off it. I think @tractorted isn't too far away from it.

    I bought a small flail for the kioti so I’ll hit it with that and see how it goes.

    I just thought it would suit someone with a mower and baler that wanted to make a few quid and get a few bales to boot.

    If anyone is still interested, give me a shout. I’ll be up at the weekend , currently on a film set dealing with trees.
