What size cutter works best on a TC24?
I'm looking at cleaning out the under brush in 5 acres of woods.

Thanks

 Size for TC24

Well the NH guys are not jumping on this so I will give it a shot.

I think your TC24 is pretty darn close to my Deere 4115 in most respects. My tractor weighs 1775 pounds and has 24 gross and 20 pto horsepower.

Deere recommends either a 4 foot or a 5 foot brush cutter for my tractor. I am sure that some sort of front ballast would also be needed in the form of an FEL or suitcase weights.

My TC29 powers out in waist tall field grass with a 5' cutter; anything less than that is does pretty well. In your case I'd worry about the weight of the cutter making the front end on your tractor light, unless you have a FEL or front weights. If don't have heavy cutting and the field is not steep, you might be able to use a 5' cutter. 4' would be safer and easier on the tractor.

Borrow a 5' if you can to try it out.

Good luck,
Bill

I have a TC24 with a 4' cutter. It seems to lug a little bit in real heavy grass and weeds but will do the job. I would not recommend the 5' cutter unless you are only cutting fairly light grass.
