 Rotary mower for BX2200

How large of a rotary mower can I run with my BX2200? I don't have much to mow, so an inexpensive brand/model will work fine. Any recommendations would be great.

At this time only Kubota builds a mid mount for that tractor and the width's are 54 and 60". The recommendation for that tractor is 60" from the manufacturer. That size tractor has been great with the 60".

 Rotary mower for BX2200

I'm looking for a 3 pt rear mount rotary mower for cutting weeds, etc, not finish mowing. My BX (arriving Saturday) has a 60" MMM. Just wondering how large a rotary unit it can handle. Sorry for the confusion.

 Rotary mower for BX2200

Implement manufacturers usually publish specs that give recommended HP range, weight etc. It's good to check if a tractor's HP and 3ph capacity are within the manufacturer's specs for any implement. In practice, it's generally good to have implements that just cover a tractor's rear tire tracks. Tractors and implements design is such that it's uncommon if a tractor can't power an implement that just covers its tracks.

Wider implements start challenging a tractor's power and traction and are harder on the mechanics. There should be a specific reason for going to wider implements and recognition that using wider implements may require slower ground speeds, smaller bites etc. Wider implements do save time if they can be adequately powered, but an extra foot a pass doesn't make a lot of difference for the work many people have to do.

Cutters take a lot of HP, and it's not uncommon for them to be narrower than the tire tracks if material heavier than weeds is cut. Such a choice would enable brushing stands of saplings at reasonable ground speeds. However, narrower widths require more passes when cutting weeds.

Cutters usually come in light, medium and heavy duty models that are rated to cut 1" 2" or 3" material. However, the ratings don't mean that a light-duty cutter won't whack the occasional larger sapling (perhaps at a risk of breaking a shear pin). The ratings give power requirements for brushing stands of heavier material at conventional grounds speeds.
