Mowin B

Hi, I am planning on using my allis B for mowing.
I would like some advice. Do I buy a rear mount and also buy a 3 point? Would a belly mower cut nicer? Are the rear mowers more difficult to get into corners? Are the cheaper KingKutter mowers as good as a Woods? Thanks in advance for any info. Still new at this.

Which woods mower do you all recommend? I would maybe like one with high suction blades to get that golf corse look. How bout turf tires? I thank you guys for helping me out. How much does a woods go for? I know that some vary in price as much as 500 or more! Do I get the self tension belt setup or do I go for the automatic setup? Thanks again. I dont want to spend a bunch of money on something and not like it. Your opinions mean alot! Thank you!

Terry, I use a "B" with a L-59 Woods belly mower with caster wheels. For some reason I now enjoy mowing the yard. Woods had all the right hardware to go with the unit and easy instructions to help set it up. Seems like I had to move one rear tire out some.I don't have a 3-point lift cause thats all I do with this tractor.Dale

I too have a L59 mower on my "B". I just changed blades and am having quite a time getting the belt back on correctly. It seems like the belt is too short. The two adjustment pulleys near the PTO pulley are all the way at the top and I have to really pull to get the belt on. There's no need to adjust the pulleys because it's tight as soon as I get the belt on. Is thishow yours works?

eric the 2 arms that come rearward off of your mower deck with all of the holes in them need to be moved back 1 or 2 holes this will give u more adjustment at the 2 idler pulleys

I perfer the belly mowers. You can see what's going on better. Also doesn't swing out when you turn corners. Although you might want the three point to use other equipment. I know people with both king cutter and woods mowers. Both seem real good to me. Just my two cents.

terry i would also reccomend the L-59woods ive had lots of them and all i have seen have 2 idler pulleys on the back to tighten the belt and they are very simple to tighten.i think a new one will run u about 1800$used ones go for about 100$a foot and u may have to do some fabrication if it came off another model tractor
