I mow many acres with a 1985 JD 430 with a 20 hp liquid cooled Diesel. Uses half the fuel of those pussy ass gas mowers...
I cut 3 acres an hour on either of my JD 950 or Skag turf tiger zero turns for about 2 gallons of fuel. I sure that fossil you are mowing with is not processing 3 acres an hour and using 1 gallon of heating oil for 3 acres.

I know the ZTR mowers are all the rage and they are way more efficient that the conventional tractor types but ya gotta be careful with them. They’re soo fast and can turn on a dime even over someone running up behind you.

I wouldn't mind finding one of those at a decent price.

My 1953 Ford Jubilee. It's rusty and ugly...but it still works great. This thing makes working around the yard a whole hell of alot easier. I did a 12v conversion, an electronic ignition, changed the fluids and a couple gaskets. It's simple to work on too
