I am going to look at a D15. I want to use it mainly to pull a batwing mower (12ft). Anything bad about the D15 that I should really look over?Does the D15 have independent PTO, and a hydraulic remote? If not how easy is it to add a remote to these?

What HP rating does the mower have? I believe you'll be ok with a D-15 if it makes good power. I wouldn't try pulling that big a brush hog through real tall stuff with a D-15, but I think you'll be ok with a finish mower and the stuff you would normally expect to cut with one. On a soft lawn and with ag tires you'll still leave tracks though, you may have to go to turf tires.

Sorry, I forgot to say, this is for a FINISH mower, not a brush hog.

I am currently using my NH3930 4WD, which is way too heavy on soft lawn with AG tires. Especially witht the rears filled and the loader on.

I have heard that D15's sometimes have a problem staying in 3rd. Other than that, I haven't heard any reason to say away from them.

Take the tractor for a spin preferably down a hill in third gear. If third is bad it will most likely pop out then. If not it's probably okay. It's not that the tractors have a problem with the gears it's usually the operator grinding gears that tears them up.

The D15 is a great tractor but that's too big a mower for a 40hp tractor. I personally would not pull more than a six foot behind a D-15 eight foot if you don't let the grass get more that a few inches high. If you want an Allis for that big a mower I suggest a D-19,180/185. All these tractors are in 70hp plus range
