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
Not a stand on but half an acre of mowing only means about 1 1/4 miles
Both makers are well thought of in the business.
