Let some grass grow long for a nature test with birds. The test is done now and the person who did it , is going to California with in the next two weeks to present it. Any way they are done, so we cut the long grass. Worked great, really liking the finish mower. Noel

Sorry about the pictures, forgot to turn thing upside down. :{(

I like the finish mower on the back a farm tractor like yours,   :thumbs:  

Mine busted late last yr, $650. in parts to fix it.

Currently looking for a good used one in my budget.

How much PTO hp you have and what is your ground speed?

Not sure on those questions. The tractor has a 28 hp engine, so pto hp would be about 23, at a guess. Also that was when it was new, it's a 1951, so hp would be down some. Speed would be about 2 to 3 miles per hour, I think, was in first gear in the long grass. When doing the normal grass cutting I use first, second or third, depending what I am going around, house, trees or straight going. Noel.

I use a 5' finish mower behind my Kubota L2000 which is 20hp at PTO, it's all it can handle mowing short grass in 2nd gear. I like 1st gear anyway because it's easier to control.

Looks like your tractor can handle that tall grass quite nicely.
