This machine could be what you are looking for:

Might be overkill for 1/2 an acre but I can't imagine why that should 
put you off...

Another option is a flail mower, if you are cutting irregularly I've 
found that these deal with the mowings better than a rotary deck. Ferris 
make one:

Not a stand on but half an acre of mowing only means about 1 1/4 miles 
of walking.

Both makers are well thought of in the business.
