New guy with question on mower size...

1846 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.

Thanks to all. I guess I ought to go with the wider mower.

I'm looking around the area at used mowers, right now.

that in many cases the gearbox on those smaller mowers is only rated to about 45HP
That's kind of what started me wondering. I have seen ads that listed minimum and maximum HP ratings on some mowers. Thanks, sir.
I picked up a six foot mower, and from what I can see it's going to be fine for my needs. Thanks to all for the help.
