    Ok guys, each to his/her own. Sounds like you finish cut dry grass in ballparks and/or driving ranges. My input is based upon all-weather pasture and roadside maintenance using the same 74" Ford 917H behind a previous 3600# geared tractor w/45 PTO hp, and my current JD3720 eHydro w/35 PTO hp. The John Deere struggles when I hit high/wet grass, especially uphill. Just can't see a little B3200 handling something like that big, particularly on hillsides and pond/ditch banks. Hence my recommendation regarding the lightest offset Gearmore that has a swath that will cut his track width track plus a little right offset

    Old thread, for sure. But interesting. I run a Vrisimo 48" flail from the back of my kubota B2920 tractor. This is an old C-148 Mighty Max which is heavily built and weighs close to 600lbs. I use the machine to mow steep sidehills at a capped landfill twice a year. The mower does well, as does the tractor. Plenty of power to operate the mower and tractor in this steep environment.

    This year, for the same job, I am looking to buy a Peruzzo Fox 60" flail mower. It appears to weigh only 430lbs (lighter build quality?) but I think that could be a benefit on my small tractor. For this season I've also added 2" spacers on both rear wheels and ballasted the rear tires with the beet juice mix.

    I'm amazed at the amount of work these small Kubotas can perform.
