</font><font color="blue" class="small">( I would like to find a true off set mower. The mowers everybody calls off set ... )</font>

So what you are looking for is something like this? (A standard power trac attachment) Note the nice hefty couterweight... imaging mowing on the side of a slope with this baby without the counterweight...


Or maybe you mean something like this? (another standard attachment)

I was overwhelmed with the "toys" I saw at Power-tract last week....and these pics are just a tease. Ya know your in a different world when the first person you meet is called "Bubba" and really looks like one...LOL. These guys know how to make nasty toys.

According to my calculations the .7 cc at 8gpm should turn the 28" blade the same speed that a new snapper 28" lawn mower blade turns. I did this because I really want to blow the grass up and away from the pond. I started out wanting to use a larger motor but the figures said .7 cc. I’ll just have to wait till I get the mower finished to see if it does what I expect it to do.
Does any one know what size motor is on Power tracs 48 or 60" finish mower?

This is what I found at Surplus Hydraulics tech help

8 gpm at .77 cu in hyd motor=2400 rpm

Torque at 2500 psi .77cu in =306 in lbs

Is that enough torque? That's only inch lbs

Do you mean you would want a mower that would cut, say, a 5' path, but the wheels would only be 4' apart, so that the cut overlaps the wheel tracks by six inches or so?

Something like that but the ditch I need to keep trimmed is 2 or 3 feet wide so I would require a good bit more that a 6 inch overhang.

Some one said power-trac.
Has a boom mower for $1700 which hain't bad considering that's in the same price range as a MMM.
Trouble is I don't have a power trac to use it on.
To bad it can't be rigged up on other tractors.

The one Tim has pictured is PT's. It has a 20 inch cut. I did a little more on my 28" last night. Here's a pic.

There is no reason that it can not fit on the 3PH with a little adaptation, if you have adequate hyd supply.
