Could use some opinions as to the best 72 inch rear mount rear discharge finish mowers--the prices of various brands appears to be similar, but what of the quality of construction and quality of mowing grass after mashing it down with four tractor tires??

No experience with rear discharge, but based on my experiences with Woods 72" side discharge, I'd recommend Woods. Does an excellent job of mowing. Seems like it sucks the grass up after the tractor tires have driven over it really well.

Mike, I'm using a Bush Hog RDTH60 (60"Wink yeah right rear discharge mower and couldn't be happier. I'm sure there are others as good; can't imagine any better.

I use a Befco, 60", C50 series rear discharge mower and can't complain about its performance. I had a problem with it windrowing the grass cuttings when it got too wet or tall but I installed a mulching kit and that cured it. It did mean that I had to mow a little slower than I did before but not too much. On the whole, I've been happy with it but my experience with other makes and models is limited.

I own a 60" Woods Rear Discharge mower. It does a great job. I wish I would have bought the 72" so it would clear my rear wheels.

Mike, Same reports as above on the Land Pride 72" rear discharge (Model 1572).

I use a landpride 2572AT (air tunnel) It uses high lift blades to raise the grass from a wheel track. I had to lenthen the lower arms so the mower had enough time to raise the grass up, works great but it is a side discharge, I mow faster than I should too.

I use a Bush Hog ATH720 side discharge mower and couldn't be happier.It sucks up the grass that the tractor mashes down and leaves a nice cut..This mower has a high blade tip speed and high suction blades witch is what make the mower work.

 rear mount rear discharge finish mowers

I am looking for a rear mower as well. I've looked at the brochures for all of the model discussed above. According to the spec's, the Land Pride has the highest blade tip speed but maybe that isn't important as everyone seems to be happy with what they have. One unit not mentioned is a Caroni. They have a 91" rear discharge unit that is pretty cheap ($1200). It has 5 blades under the deck instead of 3 like most other brands. The specs look like the it may be built cheaper but it sure is priced nice. According to the dealer, they sold almost 200 of them last year with no complaints. Anyone have any experience to share?

I bought the 71" Caroni finish mower (side discharge) last August after much comparison shopping. I paid $1000, which was about $700-$800 less than my dealer quoted for the same size rear discharge Landpride unit. I have been using it to cut about 9 acres of lawn and not-so-smooth pasture and so far I have been very impressed with the quality and performance. I ran over hidden rocks a couple of times and even though it sounded like I destroyed the mower, I found no damage other than a slight chip in one of the blades. Replacement parts are very reasonable, I picked up a second set of blades for $45.
