    Default Re: converting a brush hog

    NO





    NO! A 5ft needs around 25hp to be efficient in mowing. And in heavy grass which is tougher to mow than brush that is a slow go. 6hp is just not enough.
    Your 8N will pull it but not in heavy cutting. Be SURE to put an overrunning clutch on your pto. this will save you from running your tractor into an imovable object when you need to stop. the inertia of the spinning blades will push the tractor as it is geared directly to the transmission.

    Question is why would you want to bother with such a task.. Your talking alot of work to convert and engine to power an impliment that your tractor can do just as well.. I say at least a 30 hp engine but then you just added #500 to the weight of the contrapton your building, , and making a hitch then convert it to pull behind... oye... be cheaper to buy another tractor with more HP than an 8n then to convert that to an engine driven death trap..
