We usually don't visit our (interior AK) property until late summer and need to mow knee-high grass and waist-high fireweed. It really only gets one mow a year (and we have to mow it or the bugs are crazy while we're there). Our current mower is getting tired and isn't up to the task anymore (it was never really adequate). Any recommendations for what we should look at? We don't really need a hardcore "brush mower", we just need a lawn mower on steroids. Not worried about bagging, side discharge or mulch only.
Husquvarna, Honda, other? Specific model recommendations would be very helpful. Preferably, something available in Fairbanks or Anchorage.
