    Default LandPride Finish Mower

    I am looking at the Landpride 72" finish mower to use instead of the 54" belly deck on my BX1500. Landpride has 0% financing so it is a good time to buy. According to Landpride this model is for 15 to 30H tractors. Would the BX1500 handle this and would it save me some time mowing the 6 acres I currently mow. I spent 5 hours on Saturday mowing with the belly deck. Thanks for any input. As alway I appreciate the assistance to spend my money

    I have a Landpride 72" Rear Finish Mower. I used it behind a kubota 2910 with the 30 HP engine and it worked fine. I think a BX 1500 might have some trouble working with it, I don't know if the lift arms could pick it up without lifting the front end of your machine off the ground. I did have a problem with the original wheel sets on the mower, two failed in rapid succession because they were the wrong types. No grease fitting and cheap bearings. The company replaced them all. I no longer use the deck, because I bought a ZD -21 with a 60 inch deck that moves at 13 MPH mowing. So, the field gets done in less time. Too bad you aren't closer to my location, My deck is just sitting in the barn and I'd be happy to unload it at a very good price.

    I have to admit I don't know the PTO HP of your tractor, but I have a Land Pride 60" rear discharge on my JD4100 with 17 PTO HP and I have to go slow in tall thick grass. A few extra HP wouldn't hurt. I know I couldn't handle 72" without serious issues.

    It's been a fine mower though.

    I think a 6' RFM is too big for your tractor. Your pto could turn it at 540 rpms no problem on flat ground and average grass. I don't think you could turn it in medium to high grass and on slopes, and I don't think you could lift it w/o counter weight on the front. I'd look at a 5'. I run a 1672 with a MF 1533 and have no problems, but I don't think a sub-CUT will handle that mower efficiently.

    The mower deck you are looking at is in the vicinity of 600 pounds (depending on the model). You may want to check your manual to see what the weight the 3 point can lift.

    This is a pretty heavy duty unit. I used to run one on my 33 HP New Holland before I brought a bigger tractor. Ran great, but in heavier grass, had to go slowly. Thus, not sure that a 15 HP (if I have that spec correct) is really going to work. I'd even be a bit concerned about a 5 foot deck, but check the specs.

    I use a 60" landpride on my BX2350 and the 3PH handles the lift ok but without something on the front (like the loader) it will pick up the front tires.

    I used my new 1672 for the first time yesterday. Great mower and the 3400 had absolutely no problems with it. I think the weight will exceed the max lift on the 1500.

    Thanks for the input. My kubota dealer said he sold me a perfectly good L3240 that would work with that mower, and to not even attempt to use the BX1500. I wasn't sure so it was worth asking and checking, thanks for the inputs. I like the Landpride price at $1725 but was wondering if it's worth another $300 to go to a woods mower? I have to familiarize myself with these mowers but like what I have seen with the woods products, I have a Woods boxblade and it is great. If I go with the Landpride I would get the 0% financing, but quality and durability are key. Any suggestions, I am mowing 6 acres of flat land in grass and weeds.

    I run a 84 inch Landpride finish mower with my 35hp 4wd Century tractor. Pulling and cutting with it works well, but lifting it with my 3pt hitch is pretty close to being too much. My front tires get very light when I lift it, so I rarely do this.

    I bought mine used and couldn't even guess at the hours on it. I know it sat around in a barn for years with flat tires, so that helped with the buying price.

    With the four wheels and scalpling wheel in front, it is very fast at mowing. Of course,that's a relative term, and you might be mowing just as fast with your belly mower. The larger width will help, but you will also have to take more precautions when turning and mowing along things like fence lines.

    Good luck,
    Eddie

    My 1672 is built pretty stout. I couldn't justify more money at the time for what I was shown as heavier duty in a Bushhog and Woods brand. I'm sure they are good, but if I tear up this 1672, I need a rough cut mower. I have no complaints with mine since 2/07. I mow 3 acres 3 times every 2 weeks during summer and my yard has some pretty rocky and sandy spots. Mine also came with 5 year gearbox warranty, I don't know if this has changed.
