    11acres in 7hrs on the tractor. Have one 5acre tract left to finish in the morning. Not having the loader on the tractor made a big difference.

    How much does that use in fuela day? Picked up a 200 acre development that I have to mow once a month. Looking at getting a slightly smaller tractor that I can pull a batwing with and throw a blower on the front for parking lots and drives. I figured with diesel about 3 gallons an hour how close am I?

    You're not pulling a batwing with anything smaller than his. I'd want 60hp in front of a 10' batwing, and 80hp in front of a 15', as a minimum.

    Dido. Definitely a 75-80hp at minimum. Especially if your cutting anything heavy

    I want to get a 8' or a 10' cutter for larger areas. The 6' is perfect for cutting lots in subdivisions. Been watching auctions for a brush mower for my skidsteer.

    Good to know could i pull a 8-10' mower with a smaller model? I know its not ideal but that at this point in time in the game i need it to be more multi purpose and be able to use it for snow as well? No doubting what you are saying just trying to educate myself more. Thanks

    Have you looked into any john deere machines? I just bought a 4720 which is a 66hp tractor with 56 to the pto and im running a 7ft Land Pride Rotary cutter on it. I posted a thread in the tractor section and some guy was pulling a 15ft mower but it might of been a grooming but you would have no problem with a 10ft or if they make a 12 or 13 foot it would probably pull that. Land pride says it will pull a 15ft rotary cutter. The hitch capacity with the links all way in on the deere is 1419 and the hitch weight for a land pride RCM4015 is 1300. so im guessing you would be good if it fits with the links all the way in. If you got a 7fter on a 4720 i think you would be fine my biggest contract is 116 acres and im not to worried about the 7ft cutter

    I had a 15 ft for my JD 4400. It did good on maintenance mowing
