Dick L - Allis B pull behind mower

I need to maintain a pasture of about 14 acres. I would like to use my B but I do not believe I want to load my B with a bush hog type mower. I am thinking seriously about a DR pull behind brush mower. That way I can work the B less and keep cutting the lawn of about 4 acres with the Woods belly mower.

What is your opinion about the pull behind self powered DR with the B?

I would like to add my intrest to this discussion.I have been using my B's for mowing for some time and I have a 5 foot bush hog I pull. It isn't a work out for the 48 but the 42 will have a tough time of it. They changed the tractor hp and such in between those years.

Anyways my only addition to what everyone has said is this; if you are using the bush hog remember that you should stop mowing when you make a corner then turn it back on once you have made the corner. There is a small woodriff key that attaches the pto shaft to the gear inside the transmission that will shear. It isn't that expensive but after the half day getting at it and replacing the .45 cent key you will remember the next time or the time after that. I have done this more than once myself. Good luck with the mowing.

My 52 B AC,with a 4' howse bushhog, and overrunning clutch on the PTO, has been taking care of the pasture ( only 6.5 acres) of orchard grass& alfalfa, for 8 yrs now. It does fine if you don't let it get too high, but on thick high stuff it goes too fast in low to give a clean cut. I suppose that if I didn't have so many mole hills in the pasture, I might try it, with sharp blades.

Over run clutches are available that will fit your 1 1/8 shaft and couple to 1 3/8 implement.
You will need an over run clutch as as a safty device to keep the momentum of your implement from back driving the transmission, and thus the tractor after you stomp the clutch.
This will help keep you from mowing down fence rows, 50 ft fir trees, and the weeds in your pond or ditches. And may just save your life!!

Tractors were built to pull heavy loads, run at higher RPMs while working. So go ahead and use the 4' bush hog, your B will thank you for it.

Dick is right. A B should pull a 4' brush hog type mower all day long.

That would not work the B. It would be next to driving without anything behind it at all. The neighbor pulls a 4 foot cheaper brand with his old Cub Cadet lawn mower. As far as that brand I have only seen the TV ads. The B is a lot stronger tractor than most think. The nice thing about the self powered pull behind mowers is that you can back into corners for better trim.

What you will find is that you will need a B to mow your lawn. You will need a B to mow the pasture. You will need a B to plow the garden. You will need a B to fit the garden and another one to cultivate the garden.
A person in this day and age just can not afford to waste B driving time changing from one tool to the other. Unless you are really lazy like me you could use the same B that you fit the garden with to pull a trailer.

By deleting this foot note you might be able to get your wife to consent to at least one more. (:^D

Thanks to everyone for the input. The PTO on the Allis B is 1 1/8 inches. All of the bush hog type mowers have a 1 3/8 inch PTO shaft coupling. I guess there is some type of adaptor available?

You will need an overrunning clutch. It serves as an adapter and it will prevent the momentum of the bush hog blades from shoving the tractor when you push in the clutch.
