4200 seems kinda light for a 15' wing

Its a lighter weight 15' with 60hp min rating. I was looking into the landpride 12' but for the price would rather have 3 more feet. Hung up between the bushhog 2515 and landpride plainsman. My local dealer has them both side by side and I really can't tell any difference as far as quality.

But you will be able to run faster with the 12 ' rather than bogging down a 15' . What is most of what your cutting ? If they are jobs that are cut several times a yr than the 15 is no big deal.

Good looking setup. . . most everything I now are commercial lots and subdivisions that get mowed 3 and 4,times a year. My biggest concern with a 12' is not having as much reach for mowing banks.

Just talked to my woods dealer in town. He did not recommend a 15' with my tractor. He is supposed to be getting a woods 12' in for me to look at. So now my question is woods, rhino, landpride, or bushhog????

I've been trying to get my woods rep to get me a demo of their new 12' cutter for machines in the 35-85hp range. My mahindra falls right in the middle of that range. A. 12fter would be awesome to have on some of my larger jobs.

I like our woods 1800 batwings. We should be test pilots for them as we are really hard on them. A friend put one of our 15' ers on his Kubota 70 hp and it pulled it and cut with it but nothing like a larger displacement tractor would. For monthly cuts it would be ok but in heavy 3' material it was down to 2 mph. The 12' wing in theory seems like a good unit but I have not seen one in person.
Ben , how many drive shafts and mis. parts do you go thru on your mower ?

My current mower is a cheaper Kodiak brand. I've had it 4 years and run it about 500hrs a year. I haven't had to replace anything other than blades (alot of those), wheel bearings and gearbox seals
