New guy with question on mower size...

1843 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  JohnW
I have an IH 784 which I am told is about 60 HP.

I think the 6 ft. mower is the usual choice, but would a 5 ft. give me problems. I'm considering using it in tight spaces as opposed to open pasture.

Thanks for the great forum.

A 60hp tractor won't even know a 5 ft is back there. My 850 (40+ hp) Ford with a 6ft won't even work the governor unless I happen to hit one of the super STEEP parts of the yard just right.

If it were me I would get one the same width as the tractor although I could trim best of all with the 6ft mower behind my 8N where I could see the corners of the mower.
Glad you finally found one for your needs, :wwp:
