    Default Implement Width

    Hi I am new to this whole tractor world after moving from the big city. I just picked up a 2000 B7500 with a LA272 FEL, Rhino SE4 (48") rotary mower and a 48" box blade and love the this tractor. TBN was one of the website to join and get lots of info.
    The B7500 is rated at 21HP / 16HT PTO (I think).

    I have two questions.

    1) Should the best width implements to stick with is 48" or are 60" too much for this tractor? I am looking at the King Kutter TG-48 3 PT tiller.

    2) My second question is I am thinking the old blades on the Rhino are so worn out that it is causing some good vibration. I have just picked a new set of blades and hope this will fix the vibration issue.

    Thanks in advance and looking forward to all the good advice from here

    Stick with the 48" for that size tractor and the new blades will probably solve the vibration although the old ones could have been sharpened and weight balanced and done the same (maybe). Welcome aboard!

    The implement width will depend on the implement. A 48" would be good for a tiller, your BB, and even a rotary cutter.

    But lighter load implements you would be fine with 60". Like a finish mower, scraper blade, landscape rake, etc.

    I gotta ask though, how long does it take to cut an acre with only a 4" rotary cutter
