I put a pepper shaker muffler on the end of one of mine at one time. That helped on the noise a little. Mainly I would sit on the tractor and measure from that. I always wanted the fumes and noise high enough. Usually about 30" depending on the tractor as they all sit different.

I have two tractors with stacks.  A Bolens 1886, and an HDT1000.

 

The HDT came with a straight pipe, and I just didn't like how loud it was.  I replaced the pipe since it was cracked anyway, and added a muffler that I picked up at TSC.  Made a heck of a difference.  It still has a 'bark' but nowhere near as loud.

 

The pipe/muffler on the 1886 looks like it may have originally been for an 8N Ford.  It's not too awfully loud and definitely gives it a nice tone.

 

1886 on the left and HDT1000 on the right.

My Cub Cadet 100 and my MF12H both have mufflers on them from a Farmall Cub.  They are replacement Stanleys from TSC.  I've never measured the height of them, but I have them coming straight out the side from the exhaust on the engines and then up from there.  They are probably about 2 feet.

I don't like stacks because they seem to get in the way and hit low branches.

I prefer a Horizontal muffler that exits to the front, like what you find on Bolens GTs.

Something like one of these.

Those side mounted mufflers are nice for being out of the way, but after awhile your decals will start looking like this from the heat coming off of them.
