 Rear Mower Advice

I have looked at several rear mount finish mowers. When looking under the decksome are completely open, while others have round steel baffles weldind into the deck, around each blade. All are 72" finish side discharge mowers. Does anyonehave experience with one type or the other? Opinions?

The ones with the baffles are designed that way to maximize the the wind velocity and the amount of lift the blades can create. The good thing with these is they will draw the grass up after your tractor tires flatten it.Without baffles you don't get the draw and may have some high spots the next day when the grass recovers from the tractor treads. The good part about the one without baffles is it will probably not clog up as easily, although you should not have a problem with this as long as you mow dry grass

 Rear Mower Advice

SteveI use a Wood's RD7200 to mow grass on parts of a 10 acre field between my house and my daughter's. A couple of hundred feet near each house and barn is mowed with a garden tractor; the biggest part in the middle is done with the RD7200. It does a nice job. I let it ride on the 4 wheels provided and also installed the optional roller kit for the front. I mow at about 4 inches and get no scalping. I check the deck bottom often and am surprised how little green build-up there is. I think the rear discharge deserves the credit for this. I mow at PTO speed as indicated on the proofmeter and tachometer (either 8N or Kubota L3010 HST). I keep ground speed low (about 4MPH) to save my back and all is well. Clippings distribute nicely in a thin flat carpet behind deck and are usually almost invisible unless grass gets a little high. I bought Wood's because I've had a Wood'a 5-m since 1971 and just last summer replaced bearings in gearbox..no other problems over the years with this brush cutter. Hope to keep these units for a long time and pass them to the next generation. Hope this helps!
