The tractor has a continental 4 cylinder overhead engine in good shape. 4 speed transmission and a step up and step down secondary transmission. It runs a 4 foot John Deere and a 4 foot woods bushhog mowers easily. Is a 5 foot bushhog mower too much for my Ferguson?

ejensen, my understanding is TE20 used imported Continental Z120 until
the Standard Motors 20-80 and later 20-85 replaced the Z120 for tractors built in England. I can brush hog thru grass, weeds higher than my tractor in first gear with out problems and five foot pretty much is as wide as my tractor.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Everyone worries about the horsepower to the machine etc etc.... the problem isn't metal, it is vegetable. If you are whacking down dried weeds in Arizona, the tractor will have an easy time with the largest mower it can pick up. If you are trying to mow tall,thick. wet heavy grass... it is possible the biggest diesel will bog down. So it all depends on what you are doing where and when. Got to try it before you pay for it if possible... and then a 1/3rd of a row, half a row... but a 4 footer gives you more 'seat time', which is another excuse to go slow, half a row, enjoy the job

Tony, Good information. I will probably stay with the 4 foot bushhog mowers I have.

Exactly as Tony in Mass comments...

Our 48"in HEAVY GREEN VEG....TEA-20 can handle only 30" MAX as it has a 4 speed Trans. and the gearing is fast:

The groomer on the other hand preforms excellent with the TEA-20...

Bob...

John Deere D, Good information and pictures. Including a picture of our 1948 TE 20 with a 4 foot woods bushhog. The Sherman transmission which our tractor has with the step down feature is a benefit in heavy grass.

Should be ok. I ran a 5 foot on my TO30 no problem. Make sure you get an overrun clutch. They come with 1-1/8 and 1-3/8 inputs. It will allow you to stop easier.

I have a 1 3/8 pto shaft and an overrun clutch. I think your TO 30 has more hp than my TE 20 Thanks for the information

Five foot John Deere is no problem for my TO20. Wished I had a 6 foot sometimes.

Duner WI I think the TE 20 is smiliar to the TO 20 but used an engine made in England? A five foot mower would probably work with my TE 20 4 foot woods bushhog works very well with my TE 20
