Good morning and if you are on the other side of e world good evening.... it has been a while since I have been on health issues and such, and I forgot my password but that's fixed. So here is my question will my Tea20 raise and run a brush hog? I have been thinking of buying one to tame some tall heavy over growth that is to heavy for a mower.

I own a John Deere 261 Groomer....PTO.Three blade Belt drive....Tea-20 handles it very well....both as a GROOMER as well in thick two foot grass.

My TEA-20 has no problem to RAISE and run a 4" BRUSHER...I had to replace the CLUTCH ASSEMLY.....Clutch was original from 1949.

From experimenting I now run both the 261 Groomer and the TWO blade Brusher 2" higher at the rear than the front...better job cutting, cleaning and yes less HP.

With the TWO blade 4' BRUSHER...the TEA-20 has to be ran at half a cut (BRUSHER WIDTH) so as to keep PTO at proper RPM in any grass above 24 "s.

I now use my MF FE 35 X Diesel on all heavy cutting as the MF 35 has the upgraded 3 cylinder Perkins Diesel Engine that develops a full 44 HP .

MY Ford 2-N actually is geared better on the GROOMER than the TEA-20.

I run a JD506 5 foot brush hog with my TO20 with out problems. You should not have trouble with a 5 foot.
5 foot is as wide as my tractor and I like that when mowing near fences.

4 foot with no problem. 5 foot easy enough but if your into real tall grass and an old machine you might have a problem. 6 feet in tall grass with a newer engine can also be a problem.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes, but stick to a 5' or 4' model. I have two finish mowers that I use as brush hogs. The older 5' model worked great, but needs a new seal. I picked up a 6' till I could fix the other. It is a bit too much so I have to overlap more.

The finish mowers have 3 smaller blades so, I find that I can get away without an over-run clutch. The brush hogs have one or two huge blades, so an ORC is essential.
