 Kubota B20 - What size Flail Mower and Blade Box

Hi! Just got a 1995 B20 and want to get mower and blade box. Relative newbe, this is my first tractor w/PTO. PTO is rated at 13.5HP and I am wondering what this tractor can comfortably handle. I really want a 48" flail mower (says needs 20HP) and 5' blade box but not sure the tractor can handle. Step down would be 41" flail mower 16/18HP and 4' blade box. I'm assuming the these would be ok. Any thoughts or advice??
Thanks!!
-Marc.

Do you think the tractor could handle the small 41" 16hp flail mower?

It's a 20HP tractor, 3 cyl diesel but PTO rated at just 13.5hp.

Yeah, my tread width is 48" ... So I'd want at least that wide for a flail mower, but that size says it needs 20hp. I want to cut thick grass and black berry bushes... Tractor is 20hp but the PTO rested at 13.5. I'd think the 3cyl diesel could do the job, but if hate to buy the more to find I couldn't run it

 Kubota B20 - What size Flail Mower and Blade Box

Ok, so I am about to make a final decision on a flail mower! I have been researching, calling around etc. The Betstco /Farmers-Helper is the best priced, imported from China assembled and sold out of Oregon. Haven't heard anything bad about them.

My Kubota B20 has 20HP engine, 13.5HP PTO and is 48" wide. Been trying to decide between a 41" (16HP required) and 48" (20HP required).

The specifications state that, for the HP requirement ,"If your tractor has gear transmission this is PTO horsepower. If your tractor has hydro transmission this is engine horsepower"

Based on this, it sounds like I am within spec for the 48". I realize I am at the limit and will need to go slow for high brush but am thinking this is my best option.

I plan to order it next week, and will be monitoring this thread until then. Ultimately I will post my results once I receive install and use it.
