 New Holland tractor and stability

I am a novice to tractors and want a good compact tractor to primarily mow my 5.5 acres. All of it grass and HILLS. Although my Sears (don't laugh guys) 50" 25hp garden tractor works OK, i want something that can do a little better. Based on this board (which BTW is excellent), I am leaning toward a New Holland TC25D. My question, What can be done to improve stability? Will a belly mower and its extra width help? I guess 60" is the limit for the TC25? Supersteer? What about weights? Any and all help appreciated... Thanks.

I,too, looked at the boomer w/ supersteer and thought it was a pretty good tractor. I ended up going w/ the JD4200, one reason being the ease of removing the front loader to eliminate extra weight for finish mowing. I'm not sure about the 25D, but on the JD you can put the left rear wheel on the right rear hub and vice versa (same way for the front)to increase the width of the track for more stability. Liquid weight in the tires will also lower your center of gravity (let the dealer do this).

To improve stability, set the front and rear wheels in the wide position and use rear wheel weights. (Liquid ballast can cause rusting of the rims and is a pain if the tire has to be serviced.) A belly mower, properly used, also improves stabilty by lowering the center of gravity of the tractor-mower combination. You don't get this benefit with a rear mounted finish mower. Belly mowers should be carried by the tractor with very little if any contact of the gauge wheels with the ground. When cutting at the desired height, the gauge wheels on the deck should clear by 1/4 to 3/8 inch. The primary reason they are there is to prevent scalping on uneven terrain--not control cutting height in normal operation.

I have a TC18 with a 60" belly mount...NH lists the weight as 425 lbs and according to NH "most" of the weight is carried by tractor. Only the rear wheels can be turned around and that will give approx 6" of width. New Holland also offers a weight bar for the rear hitch, which can takes 7- 57lb weights (I have 6 on mine, but mainly for plowing in the winter. When the mower deck is in the down position, those weights are still about 2 inches off the ground. I had to build a small platform to remove them and was sort of irritated untill I was plowing my driveway and became a little worried about the angle. I lowered the rear hitch and it seemed to make a difference. I got a little long winded, but I hope this helps a little.
