 Front mounted mower

For you guys with MMM and FEL I have a guestion.

Would it be possible to install a mower on your FEL and drive it either by the mid pto or hyd? I realize the tractor's hyd would not be sufficient. I also realize using the mid pto would be a danger for raising the FEL.

I am a little puzzled that is no mower for this. It sure seems to me if I had a FEL and was having to install and remove a MMM this would be a big improvement. It would allow you to mow closer to buildings and such and would be shorter than a RFM with FEL. You could use a self contained hyd pump system instead of pto if necessary.

Anything is possible.

I would guess the hurdles of the pto shaft path is the main reason why you don't see it. Additionally, that's why they make a 3PH mounted mower correct?

KT

a front mounted mower would not ride the terrain as well as a behind the tractor or below the tractor. It would constantly be digging in and the only smooth operation would be when you are in reverse.

WW,

They do make them or rather I guess they are different for tractors with a front 3 pt hitch and front pto. They may need a little larger front tire but they should work.

But you would need the fel to be able to fully float and that may not be possible just due to the weight.

 Front mounted mower

When I was working at the dealer ship I installed a Bradco SSL mower on the Fell of a larger utility tractor. It ended up costing more for that set up than it was worth after the pump 45 gallon 3pt mounted reservoir and the enormous amount of hose and couples needed. I will say after it was all said and done it did work very slick.

It all depends on the tractor.

Ken; I think many CUTS did not have enough hydraulic pump capacity a few years ago. You need at least 20 gpm. You could in theory mount on the universal skid steer attachment and then use a unit like the Bobcat one. I think this is what Oneace was taking about?

Yes that is what I was talking about. The problem you will you into with out a separate pump is when you try to move the loader nothing will happen or the mower will stop and go every time you move the joy stick which would eventually cause either motor or pump damage.

This is what I plan to do except the mower would have it's own power plant so that no PTO or HYD will be needed.
