    Default Re: Mid Mount Mower

    I use a finishing mower on a 2516 which is the same size as the max 28. I don't have lots of obstacles but it does well. With a little practice you can trim pretty good with it. If you go with a gear tractor i would go MMM, but if you go hst i would at least try a rfm. I went with the rfm from a zero turn. Like said before whats nice about a rfm is the price. It is a lot easier and cheaper to replace a rfm than a mid mount. The tractor will always outlast the mower, either way.

    I'm encouraged that u went to rfm from zero, because so many say get a zero in addition to a tractor...but that is too much for me. Can u explain why u dumped zero for rear finish? I'm very interested. Thx

    I have a 2516 HST 4wd/ FEL / MMM. It is usually off until I am ready to mow. It was difficult to hook up at first but with practice I can now get it on in no time. With the FEL off the turning radius is really tight.

    I own a Max28xl and have the 60" mmm. It takes me a couple of minutes to hook up. Super easy!

    Can't speak about Mahindra but I have a 52" mid mount mower on my Bx2230. It's on and off in under ten minutes with no tools - under five if I have some help. I have trees and other obstacles to mow around and wouldn't want a rear mounted mower. If you just have straight grass with no trees, sheds, fences etc maybe a rear mounted mower makes more sense.

    I went with the mmm for a couple of reasons, first the tractor I bought had the fel, mmm and the backhoe as a package. And thought I was against the rear mount mower because of having to hook up a 3 pt attachment. I just drive over the mower connect 2 mid pins, the front mount easilly snaps in place. The only somewhat hard part is connecting the pto, and thats only because I'm a a good size guy and the clearence is tight. I have never had a problem with the drive over always lines up great.
