 Groomig mower for an older tractor

I have just bought a Ferguson, 1957 MF-35. It is approximately 20 hp, although it has a 4 cylinder gas engine, and appears more powerful than that. It runs beautifully. It has a standard 3 point hitch, but does not have a live pto. I would like to get a rear discharge 60 inch finishing mower. Does anyone have any experience using a finishing mower with an older tractor. I would appreciate any advice from you experts. Thanks!Rich

No good reason why it won't work. Just get an over-running clutch for your PTO output, and you will not have a problem stopping and braking the tractor (this clutch allows the mower drive train to coast to a stop whenever the tractor stops, otherwise everything will have to stop together). Adjust your mowing speed (gear-range) to allow the hp of your tractor to maintain PTO rpm. My personal experience is with a two cylinder JD 420 (1958) and it handled a rear 60" 3 pt mower with ease and at whatever ground speed I wished (and could tolerate on the seat). Hopefully your MF tractor has 3 pt lift that will hold its position, and is not the "either all the way up or all the way down" variety as my old Ferguson TO 30 used to be. That would not work well with a 3 pt rear finishing mower. I hope this helps.
