 Swisher T60 finish mower used with a MMM

Has anyone used an Swisher T60 (off-set) finish mower in combination with a mid-mount mower on a compact tractor? I am considering purchasing one to use with a Kioti CK20HST and 60" mid-mount mower.

 Swisher T60 finish mower used with a MMM

One of the properties that we purchased recently had been cut previously with a large riding mower and a Swisher T60.

The end result was a 10' cut, but behind the riding mower it was a big extra load. I'm not sure that given the reduced travel speeds in that case there was any real net gain in mowing time.

On a CUT though, the increased load would hardly be noticeable.

The one thing I would point out however is that unless you are cutting a very large, wide open flat area, I'm not sure you would really be gaining anything.

In most cases, the cost of a MMM plus a Swisher T60 would be more than the cost of buying a good commercial mower. In terms of cutting speed, the dedicated mower would literally cut circles around the CUT.

Best of luck.

I did, pulling an offset Swisher with a 60" JD430. I ended up with mismatched swaths, five foot of nicely cut grass behind the JD, and a mess behind the Swisher. The normal JD ground speed was much too fast for the Swisher to cope, and the Swisher bounced badly too. Reducing ground speed resulted in elapsed mowing time about equal to what the riding mower could do at normal John Deere speed. I got rid of the Swisher.
