 size of tractor

Its time for more advice. I just planted 2 acres of grass and when I am done planting I will have 3 or more acres to finish mow. I have a Kubota 4330. This tractor weighs 3500 lbs. Most of the acreage will be object free. Will I be able to mow that with a finishing mower without the tractor doing to much damage to the grass? Or do I need to buy a smaller riding lawn mower?

Thanks for your advice

Damage to the grass is not directly related to the weight of the tractor, but the pressure placed on the ground. The greater the weight of the tractor the greater the surface area you need on the ground to keep the pressure low. We have all seen the agricultural ferilizer or spray trucks with the enormous tires.
There for the question is what type of tires you have on the tractor and how much balasting do you have? Also what type of soil do you have? Here we have hard clay and I can drive my 65 hp MF with ag tires across the lawn with little damage.

You should be okay with that combo as long if you have good solid soil.
