 New Tractor - Need advise

First, I am gratful to this web site and it's members for the valuable information gleaned over the past months leading up to my order, made today! Went with the closest dealer. (Moore's Corners Granville NY)Because of your help,I am confident I made at least a fair deal.* NH TC40D w/4wdrive, Loaded R4's, engine heater,rear work light, 16A FEL w/quick attach, HD bucket,loader tooth bar, grill gaurd, set up & delivery. $20,612.* Curtis 7' quick attach snow blade, all hydro angle. $2325* Walco 7' back blade. $450* Woods 5' rotary cutter $1050My question is this: I have some fairly steep hills to mow, but not too many obsticles. I plan on moving the tires to their out-most position for stability. This would make the tires wider than the rotary cutter. Would it be worth the extra $300+- to go to a 6' cutter? Thank you in advance for any help offered.I will take delivery in about 3 weeks. SmilePeter in Vermont

Peter, maybe it depends on how close you want to mow to long horizontal obstacles such as fences and buildings. I much prefer a mower that's slightly wider than my rear tires, but it sure isn't necessary, especially if you don't need to get close to fences and such.

Very interesting that you are not using a 6 footer to begin with. We put a 6 footer with a 33 with little difficulty. I would't hesitate to go to a 6 footer. Unless you are mowing between rows that you need the small width.

I would select the Bush-hog Squealer and get the 7' twin spindle. Yes it is more money, but it doesn't stick back any further than a 42" brush-hog would,that would give you more stability, you do have enough power to run it, and it does come with an offset so it's easy to trim around fences and close to other objects. Another reason to like it is, it has dual tail wheels so the deck doesn't drop into woodchuck holes or other types of dead furrows etc.

Thanks for the advise gentlemen. I will go with a 6 footer for sure, and will at leastlook into the squeeler. I now know (thanks Mark)that my tires will adjust out to at least 84 inches. Because I am a first time tractor operator I think I will opt for saftey & stability on my hills over completly covering my tracks w/ the cutter. Probably split the difference and move them to about 76+-. One more week until delivery. Like a kid on Christmas morn waiting for the parents to wake up.
Best regards,
Peter
