G'day guys,

New to the site.

I can say I'm pretty much tractor iliterate so bear with me.

I'm looking at a L5030 cab model at the moment and would like to hear what you think of them.
Main use would be roadside slashing for local councils.

Could I hook up a front linkage to the L5030 and run a 6ft slaher out front and then run a reach mower out back?
Is 50HP enough for this kind of setup? Is the tractors dimensions large enough to run this combo?

Size and weight is an issue for me and I don't really want to have to by a flat bed truck to haul it around so the L5030 is good for me wieght and size wise but if it's up to the job I want it to do is my question.

Cheers.

Alex, I'd say you are light on the tractor weight as well as horsepower for what you want to do. We normally set an outfit like what you are asking for with a one hundred horse tractor chassis to counter balance for the mower weight being off to the side that much. The amount of boom distance on the three point would be a major part of it and the slasher out front I haven't seen done yet, here in the states or while in your beautiful country this past spring I didn't get to see any outfits as your described to look at for my brain to feast on! I do know that the grasses you have there are not as heavy as here in our area but leverage is the biggest problem I see.
