Does anybody have info ref to blades rpm's on ztr mowers
Toro ZTR's 18,000+ ft./min.
i am also curious about blade speeds involving mf 2330 belly mower, and the kubota 1500 bell mower
The blade tip speed on a belly mower will be slower than most commercial WB and ZTMs. You will be more productive using a commercial type mower due to their agility. A Z can run circles around a tractor with a belly mower with much less trimming. Now if you are mowing in the ruff like a field where cut quality is not of importance a tractor will give a better ride and could be faster due to larger wheels soaking up the bumps. Do you have enough ground engagement work to justify a tractor if not rent a tractor or sub it out.
Buy some goats or you could try one of these........
I have a Super Z 60". Blade tip speed is 18,700 according to my manual.
cub tank 18,000 +
I saw that and thought..."this guy has to be a local!!!" LOL!!!
Hello neighbor and welcome to Lawnsite!
As far as the info, name the mower and I'm sure I know the blade tip speed.
Dixie Chopper 60" is 19,311 fpm at 3600 rpm if I remember correctly.
The only pull behind pto mower I have found with tip speed close to a ZTR is the progressive. I have a 22' progressive with 18,547 blade tip speed.
Thank all of you for your replies,
I have a great dane chariot 52" 25hp kohler
just trying to see if any other comparable mowers
have more blade speed.......
