I've got my 3-point hitch ordered and am getting ready to purchase a brush mower for the tractor(wide front with Freeman loader mounted). I expect to keep my pasture mowed and I've got a small patch of switch grass(3-4 feet tall)for wildlife habitat that I plan to mow off infrequently. What size (width of cut)mower can the CA handle for this type of mowing? I'd like to cut the width of the rear wheels, but they are nearly 6 feet apart when I've got them adjusted all the way in.

What about for my CA without a 3 point hitch? What can I find and use to mow 15 acres that has been let go a bit, has been bushhogged a few times the last couple of years, and now needs to be mowed or hogged often to finish bringing it back. Essentially flat land. Should I spend for the 3-point conversion? Any help is appreciated.

I use a D-10 and a 5 foot king kutter mower for similar work. I think it is a good match. Because I don't have a lot of time I often mow tall wet grass. Many times I am down in first gear mowing the tall wet stuff. If you have a six footer, you could reduce the size of your swath. You are also hanging a good deal of weight off the back of a light tractor. You may want some weight up front if you are working on hilly ground.

I think that anything bigger than 5' cutting 3-4' grass would be too much. Better to be over powered and have to go over it once thance having it bog down then needing to raise it up and go over it twice.

Would seem to me that the CA has the guts to handle anything you put back there.
