    You probably will not find a hydraulic drive 8' mower. With hydro drive up front you obviously cut the material before you run over it. You mentioned only cutting grass so you'd have no problems with a 8' PTO mower.

    With a rear mower I mow anything the front axle/bucket will push over.

    Default Re: Brush mower... PTO vs Universal quick connect

    Personally, I'd go 7 or 8' 3 pt PTO.
    Plenty of power to cut the big stuff, and will do decent on shorter stuff. It's not a grooming mower, so if you want it to look like the lawn, it ain't going to happen.
    I use mine (Woods 7' PTO, 3 pt mount) to mow up to 3 feet tall grass, and to mow waterways down to about 3inches tall.
    If I don't let it get too big (less than 12"), does a nice job. Just not a lawn mower. It will bunch up in the really tall, thick, heavy stuff, but that's to be expected.
    Plus I think it would be hard doing a level job with FEL mount.
    my 2 cents, again
