I have a 45hp kubota and use a 84" blower with no power issues at all !

BTW - does anyone know the horsepower needed to drive a 72? I have a 55-horse David Brown so it was never a problem, but prospective buyers want to know if their tractors will run it. As much as I want to sell it, I won't sell to someone with an underpowered tractor.
