Found a King Kutter Bush Hog, in very rough condition, and I'm going to clean it up to sell in the future. It's a 5 footer, dark yellow (lots of rust), and uses 3 point hitch, (if you haven't already guessed that). Here's the same exact one, but in WAY better condition:                                                                                                                                                                                                                             256046_200x200.jpg

 

 

                                                       Warning: Do not use on any tractor under 40HP.

Weight: 525.0 (lbs)

PTO Drive Type: Shear pin

Category Type: 1

Deck Thickness: 12 ga.

Cutting Height: 2-8 (in)

I think what you have is a King Kutter Brush Mower or bush hog as they are called.  The Finish Mowers ride on 4 wheels, one on each corner.

Not to be rude but the mower in the picture is a "bush hog" type mower and not a finish mower.                  

 

:ditto: Yeah what he said.

 

 

Here's what one of their finish mowers look like.

Like what everyone else said, that looks like a rough mower, here is a picture of my 5' King Kutter finish mower, this is the older model and it's in a little rougher shape.

 

Also added a picture of my 4' Rough mower

Hey, thanks! I didn't what anyone to think it was for sale yet, since I need to clean her up, plus she's buried in a pile of weeds. I really thank you for that! :wave:  :D    P.S. I love your cute cat pic!

HAHAHA!!!!!!!  Looks like he changed it now.  And might I say that's a nice T.A.R.D.I.S. you have in your picture.  Who's your favorite?  I am most partial to Matt Smith's version.

I have to wonder about that HP warning?  I have a heavy 5 ft brush mowernot King Cutter) that I use on a 20 hp Ford 1500.

I do not cut a lot of brush but have had no problem running it.

I have rarely seen a min HP  recommendation but more often seen a max hp rating on the gearbox.

My tiller is recommended 25 hp min and 45 hp max.

I was thinking the same thing.  When I had my IH 400 it was rated at 45 hp and I used a 10' bush hog in heavy grass with it.  sharp blades and go slow and it went right through it.  Wonder if that shouldn't have been MAX HP 45.

You guys are correct.  Having sold them when I worked as TSC they were rated up to 40hp.
