OK I bought the 6ft box blade, now what are your opinions on finish mowers? What size can I get. I mow about 2 acres with my front cut mower and would love to switch over and buy a finish mower since I have my WD now.

We use a 6' landpride 3pt finish mower behind our wd 45, the tracor doesn't know it's back there. Good luck with your new tractor. Mike

Your WD should handle a 6 ft 3 pt just fine.. I've got two 6 ft finish mowers, and they work great behind a WD45.. The best is probably a LandPride,but very pricey.. King Kutters are real good mowers also, as well as Rhino..

I use a 3-point flail mower on my WD and get pretty good results. A belly mower from someone like Woods would work well also. Both are rather pricey.

A good running WD should have more than ample power to run any belly mower that you could mount on it. Mr. Bob

Actually I would rather use a rear mount 3pt finish mower. What size should I get 5" or 6"

I think the Wd would handle the 6 foot quite well. Mr. Bob

we have 2 CAs one has a Woods L306 belly mower on it and I like it it is 6ft and the CA handels it well and it works grate around trees and othere things that have to be mowed around after I busted a spindal on it we bought a Woods RM600 6ft it is the same mower exept it is 3pt with a gear box it is supost to be heaver and beter bilt than the belt drive it works grate on the 550 Oliver but on the CA with 3pt the PTO shaft on the tractor is kind of high and the angel is not right when mowing and when you go around sharp corners it dous not cut close to obsticals but it mows grate out in the open the 6ft cut can be a load for the CA if it gets away from you we mow the pastur when it is around a foot down to 4-6 in your WD should have more power than a CA so it should handal 6ft but I would not get one nerower than the tractors tires becous you will have to drive over it twice befor you get it mowed I like the woods mower all the parts I have bought stuff to bolt the blades on slip clutches and shims were all less than a $1 or 2 I was also told that a rear discharge is prity mutch just for the yard and you want high lift (high sucktion blades) to get a good clean cut Hope this helps

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
