    What made up your mind? Glad your original choice was a good one. You thought you were regretting that... Can you walk us through to your final decision?

    Another question: What size and type mowers are you (or any Max 28 owner) running?

    I've just sold my "big" 37 HP tractor and all the equipment associated with it. I want to down-size and am considering the Max 28. I ran a six-foot rotary cutter and a seven-foot finish mower behind the old Kubota.

    I'd like to go with a set of five footers if I buy the Max, but am somewhat concerned about how well the Max will spin these mowers.

    You should find the MAX 28 will do fine with the 5" implements.

    Max and Galen:

    Thanks for that.

    Ordinarily, I would not have been concerned, but I did see a dealer's ad online where he advertised a "combo" deal with a trailer, 28XL/loader, and various equipment including a four foot mower. Seemed odd to include a mower that size and wondered if there was some problem with handling anything bigger.

    No problems at all with a 5' finishing mower on a 2516 which is similar to the Max 28 with less HP. I cut pretty tall grass at times. I have an area I cut every other time I cut the yard and no issues.

    More likely the dealer was overstocked with 4' mowers.

    I ran a 6' Vrisimo flail behind a Max25 this summer and it handled it just fine, but we do mow that field fairly often so we are only cutting a few inches at a time of irrigated weeds/grass/bermuda. I would not recommend that combination for commercial tall grass mowing! We generally recommend 5' mowers on the Max series. Ironically, a lot of new buyers with no tractor experience will ask for 4' mowers if they are buying a rotary. Maybe because of tight areas, but mostly I think because the 5' rotary looks intimidating to them. We let the customer make that call.

    Max 25

    Default Re: kobota bx25 vs mahindra max 25

    I bought a Max25 in June. I was not even thinking of a SCUT/CUT/UT. I needed a small tractor mowing,snow removal,light landscaping projects and a large garden on my 11 acres. I looked at Kubotas,(BX was to small,B was on the large size.) I looked at Kioti,but dealer had a bad reputation. I looked at TYM but I was told by a dealer that had dropped the line that corporate support was not the best.
    I took delivery end of June Max25/FEL/MMM,I had a broken ankle so did not get a lot of use out of it at first,but now have 30 hours on it,mostly mowing.
    I replaced a cub cadet lawn tractor,a '49 ford 8N. The macine has performed every task that I have ask it to flawlessly.
    The points that mostly tipped me in the right direction was the fact that I had 22hp on the PTO and the weight.
    You guys can quibble over definitions all you want to, but as a large lot home owner this machine whatever anyone choses to call it fit my needs admirably. Is it perfect? No.I find the light switch to be poorly placed as I sometimes hit it with my knee while dismounting,and the fact that I have to remove the side panel to check oil is a bit of a pain.
    At this early point I am a satisfied owner. Nothing else matters!
