Thanks for all of the replies. Great information from real tractor users !

One of my local dealers says to stick with 5ft and another one says 6ft is fine. Seems like many people are recommending a 5ft unit. Guess I am struggling with whether the tractor can handle the 6ft or if 5ft is better. Another thing is the 5ft I am looking at is 66 inches actual width which would just about cover my tractor tires width of 68 inches. Although the cutting width is only 60 inches, I would be doing an overlap on the next cutting pass. Is there any big deal about cutting grass that is laying down due to the tractor tires running over it before being cut? Can you just do another pass from a different direction to pull the grass up and get it cut?

As the 6ft is heavier than the 5ft unit, it got me thinking about what is the 3pt hitch lift capacity of a TO-35? I search around and did not find it yet.

Any advice about getting a brush hog with shear pin vs slip clutch on the TO-35 that has the live PTO?

If you buy a cutter that has a slip clutch!

As soon as you get it home, loosen the slip clutch, be sure it spins free, then re-tighten the clutch per manufacturers specifications.

The slip clutch must work properly, otherwise if you hit something solid, if the slip clutch does not slip, you could bust transmission gears.

Just a heads up.

Sometimes slip clutches have paint on them that keep the clutch from working properly.

Also, if you buy a cutter with a shear pin, be sure you have soft shear bolts, not hard bolts.

I have a 5 ft and it works fine.
