    Jotul - You should only burn hardwoods

    Got told the same thing by a manufacturer at a show as well, I disagreed with him but didnt feel the need to discuss further.

    OREGON field test

    I think I have a parcel at home as well but I didnt have the option for 200/201, only a 150 . . . Is that the same thing?

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    Bramble wont do any thing to them, my tyres have them stuck in all over and they dont seem to cause a problem. I have had one slow puncture after cutting thorns, the one in the pics above. Just put some gunk in there and pumped it back up. Will do the same in the others if i get a problem.

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    Great on slopes. Will go up some thing very steep and up to 30 degrees accross the slope. Much better than a mini tractor. Depending on what one you go for I expect it would cost 6-10k. I wouldnt say its designed for pulling a trailer.

    That one is a 98x, it is a proper fun machine to use, I did a 10h day on it a few weeks ago, that wasnt so comfy. It realy does get throught the material and very nimble.

    A ride on brushcutter would do the trick for you. I have had this about 2 months now and its a great machine. This is a powerfull 4x4 with 98cm cut width but a smaller two wheel drive i expect would be ok for you.
