'53 Ford Jubilee + 7' Finish Mower = ?

I am looking into buying a finish mower for the Jube'. I want to mow 16 flat acres of Kentucky Blue Grass, Rye and Fescue. I'm told this tractor can handle a 6 foot finish mower but I'd like to go to a 7 foot deck (or larger) if possible to cut down the mowing time. Any of you Jubilee owners have any experience with large finish mower decks?

I run a 6 foot KK finish mower with a '54 NAA and mow 4 acres of bluegrass... it is all about the height of what you are trying to mow down.... if I stay on top of the cutting it works fine.... if I try to mow taller areas (i.e. septic field) the overabundance of grass under the mower will actually bog her down to where I have to clutch.... and then I'm stopped..... no live PTO makes it a little time consuming as the tractor ground speed versus pto speed don't mesh well for the taller stuff......

I think you would be unhappy with a 7' mower on a Jubilee. I am using a 6' woods belly mower on a 961and in long grass, when it gets ahead of me, the 961has all it wants. At times I have even that to stop and let the mower clear itself. I can do this with live PTO but with your transmission PTO this would be a problem. You have about 30 HP while my 961 has about 40. Sometimes width isn't the only consideration.

Thanks fellas. I know exactly what you mean about those areas with tall/thick grass. My 5' brush hog even slows down when I get around the septic leach field. I think I'll stick to a 6' deck.

I run a 7 foot finish mower (3 blade, belt driven) behind a Ford 900. It works good, but long grass is still not the ticket with this mower. I've got the power though. I believe that I have a 172 ci engine, where you have the 132 ci. About 10 less hp with you rig.
