    As I said in another post, I have a 22' progressive finish mower. I have also used a 20' befco finish mower (which is a POS compared to the progressive). I use a 52 hp case IH tractor.

    I think the other guy is pretty close. I don't see any reason 15-22' isn't reasonable, for a 55 horse tractor.
