WOW, that doesn't take up much room. The Bolens QS16 was offered with a Kohler K341 single cylinder, very rare, but very capable. The T in QT was for Twin engine and the S in QS was for single cylinder

You are liable to encounter some very large roots that close to the trees, not sure what type of grass will grow under trees, around here rye is the only thing that will grow under trees

If you watch video I got hold of a big root that stopped me dead and the front wheels came up.. If ya look closely at the ripper I have bent one of the teeth.. As for grass most will grow in there as it gets plenty of water from the field behind us..

Grass needs sun to grow as much as water. soil issues and lack of sun are by far the biggest problems with getting grass to grow, water is not one of them.

That's good, around here if there isn't full sun the types of native grasses we have do not grow in any shade
