 finish mowers - good or not so good

I'm looking to purchase a rear 72" , rear discharge finish mower. I've researched Bush Hog, Howse, Woods, Land Pride, King Kutter,and Buhl and I would appreciated any positive or negative experiences owning the above mentioned brands.

Look for the blade tip speed. Normally the higher the better. Take a look at the decks on the underside. Rear discharge if to have a flaw it would be in tall grass situations they will windrow from the blades on the right.

The L590 RFM I had on my Kubota L245 was a real nice mower. I have had very good experience with Land Pride equipment. The FDR2572 would be a good choice for your L3130.

It has been 3 or more years since I replaced my 3 pt mower. My Buhler has been good for me and does a nice cut. The old Landpride I had was sturdy and well constructed but did not provide as nice a cut.

 finish mowers - good or not so good

Woods and Buhler (FarmKing) are both good mowers. The Woods is a bit heavier construction, but slightly higher priced. If you have a JD dealer near by, you can look at their "Frontier" line. They have a Heavy-duty line (made by woods) and a light duty line (made by befco)of finish mowers.
You might also consider a belly mount finish mower, if mowing around alot of obstacles. With the belly mount mower, if you turn the tractor right... the mower goes right. With a rear mount mower however, if you turn right.. the mower will swing to the left. Could cause damage to fences or small trees if not cautious while making tight turns. Mid mount mowers are easier for less experienced tractor operators to operate. You can look down and see the mower, instead of having to look back. Just something to consider. Belly mount mowers however, do cost more and are not as easy to install and remove as a 3 pt mower.
