 3ph finish mower what brand type

Anyone got tips for what to look for when shopping for a pull behind finish mower. I am looking at getting a 5' one for mowing about 3 acres of yard around the house. I saw a new red one (bush hog brand?) with adjustable height wheels at each corner for $1400. That's my price range. Any options I should look for when shopping? I've got a Cub 7205 20hp hydro to pull it, can it handle 5'?

Eddie,

I would favor a rear-discharge design, and look for one with higher blade-tip speeds. The manufacturer's website (Woods, Bush Hog, LandPride, Befco, etc.) will tell you blade tip speed, deck thickness, and other information. I also think that some type of rear guard is worth getting unless you'll be mowing in the middle of nowhere. I pull a 5' Woods with chain guard and the four caster wheel design behind my B2410, though it could handle it 6', so I'm sure your Cub could handle a 5'. If the mower you saw was a new Bush Hog for $1400 that would be a very good deal - they are built very solid, as is the Woods RD-series and the LandPride FDR25-series, among others.

Thanks for the tip on blade tip speed, never heard of that one. I will be looking into the 5' mower for $1400 this weekend. It seemed like a really good deal.
Thanks,
Eddie

No problem. The blades on the rear-discharge mowers are supposedly high-lift, which should help pull up the grass that has been tracked down by the front and rear tires. The higher blade-tip speed makes for better lift.

 3ph finish mower what brand type

Eddie I found out after I bought the Bush Hog RDTH-72 that heavier is not better, it is well built but, in my case I have parts of the lawn that stays wet for a longer period of timein the spring. As a result the 72 inch unit weighs about 588 lbs but the gauge/ caster wheels leave a slight impression in the lawn and it leaves small diviots where you change direction due to the caster action of the wheels. My suggestion is if you have wet areas get the lightest machine possible with the widest wheels
Hope this helps

The red mower could be a Howse; they are similar if not identical to King Kutter. I have about 35 hours on my 5' King Kutter now, and really like it. They can be found for about $1100. Good luck! Bill Mullens

I recently purchased the Kubota B 2410 with the Landpride 60" rear discharge mower model FDR1560. It has the pneumatic air filled rubber tires, 18,264 fpm blade tip speed weight is 492 #, deck is 10 gauge steel. It does a nice job and I am completely satisfied with it. As a package deal with tractor and other implements, the dealer charged me $1400.

 3ph finish mower what brand type

I went to check out the "red" unit that was $1400. It is a WAC brand, model RD 60, made in Italy. A friend got one new for $1300 and loves it. It is a light weight unit, I could pick up one tire by myself no problem. Thanks for the tip on the weight of the unit Hans. Here in Maine the grass isn't really tough to begin with (compared to what I grew up with in FL), so a smooth caster action would be nice on the wheels.

I also noticed a WOODS RD6000 at the dealer, ugh ugh! what a rugger piece of equipment. It even had springs at the top of the wheel shafts, kind of like a shock assembly. But I could even begin to get one of the tires off the ground, probably weighs in at 550lbs. Didn't have a price on it though, probably $1800ish.

Thanks for the tip on the king cutter Bill, will be looking at one soon. It's all just a matter of which one's for me. I'm sure the woods would out last the others (20yrs as opposed to 15 yrs??) but hey, it's just grass!

Thanks all,
ed

I recently went through this search as I let my Landpride 5 ft go with my old tractor. There are a number of units out there and price can be high. The weight of the deck can be important as it will eventually wear out. Sand in the soil will cut it quite quickly. The weight is not as important as the rigidity of the frame. I have seen a number that are bent. The weight will increase as you weld breaks and splits.
After looking at Landpride, Ford, JD, Woods, and everything else sold in my area I purchased a Buhler Farm-King at the green dealer for $1100. I liked the heavy metal in the deck and the smooth radius bends which reduce build up of grass.

Weight of the unit may or may not be a problem. It sounds like Hans has had a problem where he mows with just taking a turn and having the caster wheels catch turf. I could see where that would occur if it was wet enough, but I haven't seen that problem in either of the areas I mow. What I have found is that I need to be careful in changing directions (forward/reverse) or else I may damage the turf. This is because the caster wheels need to rotate 180 degrees and re-orient themselves when you back up - if I try to do this too fast, I can have problems. As far as brands go - hey, there are probably a bunch of them that would work out in a homeowner-type application. I'll take my chances with my (ugh ugh) Woods RD6000.
