    On another issue I mentioned you should stay between your rear wheels with the brush hog. I was again mistaken, and was thinking about what I was told by my selling dealer about box blades, NOT bush hogs, brush hogs, rear mowers, etc.

    Sorry for the mistakes, and to those who caught them.
    I will say that a brush hog much wider then the rears on a 40HP tractor will not perform very well, and therefore a 15' batwing will not be advisable.
    I appreciate the clarification, CM! Some very good discussion here and it is spurring on a lot of related Google and TBN forum searches for me.

    And the point with Murphy, was that even tough I corrected information that he knew was incorrect also, Murphy went into 'troll' mode again.
    Points taken, thanks for clarifying.

    You can't say that someone else's interpretation of your comment is incorrect. Perception is reality. A picture, with no explanation came across as being sarcastic....period.

    A picture without any explanation doesn't make any point in many cases, and certainly not in this case.

    The OP is new to tractors, how can you assume he knows that there are tractors using those mowers even though they aren't the same width? Without some sort of explanation, it doesn't help him at all, and he's left to guess.

    If it came across as sarcasm, it was unintentional and I'll apologize for the 'perception'.
