    It really matters what type of 5' implement. A 5' bush hog or finish mower will take more tractor than a 5' cultivator, post hole auger, etc. But I'd say roughly that your 3pt. "stuff" is generally ok if not much wider than the tractor.

    About 25 PTO HP should do well for you.
    Smaller, or less HP< and you might need to slow down on occasion.

    Really depends what implements you plan to use.

    I agree. 25 PTO HP minimum to work efficiently.
