Can I run a 72 inch brush hog mower on a 955? I tried it and I have some concerns. The mower runs fine but will slow down at the PTO shaft and then speed up if you stop? I run a 60 inch tiller and the PTO will never slow down and the tiller just tills away.

Thanks for Your comments

The PTO clutch in the tractor is slipping ? PTO clutch is hydraulic so first order of business is to test the pressure .
Make sure that somebody did not pour oil into the transmission that IS NOT wet clutch compatible . Transmission oil was last changed when ?
When was the last time the Filter Element

Part Number

T111383 has seen the light of day ?

I would think it to be under powered, maybe just for cutting grass OK. We have a JD 4600, 10 more pto HP than your 955 and I have to go very slow in tall weeds/brush with a 6 foot Bush Hog.

You have a hydro trany so slow down your travel speed to reduce the PTO load if needed, just as you slow down, way down, with the tiller. That mower can be too big for that little tractor, depending on what you're trying to mow and how low you're trying to cut. Realize that you may have to go over it twice, crosswise the 2nd pass.

You may be trying to cut too low and the mower can't get rid of the clippings fast enough and you are recutting everything under the deck. Might try taking not as wide a cut, or carry the mower higher, and cut close second trip through. Don't continue to work it that hard that the tractor pto slips, or you will soon be replacing the pto clutch

That mower is a 60" model and so is the tiller as they match the width of the tractor nicely.

I run the same size implements with a 2520 compact utility tractor without issues under average conditions. Realizing you could have a range of different slip clutch setups after your PTO shaft on either implement or non at all makes a big difference . I try to adjust slip clutches each season as both implements set outside year around. Do this by loosening the bolts around the clutch until it slips easily when engaged. Then tighten the bolts back up gradually until you get the required even operation under load. BTW my 2520 has a little less hp than your 955 and has hydrostatic drive which makes it a great tractor for both implements mentioned.

Thought of another PTO implement that is probably the scariest one to operate, just use the PHD with large auger to plant trees but have four other sizes in total to choose from. The electric PTO switch on the 2520 makes it scary running PTO implements as there is no easing into engagement, it is either full on or off.

Do you throttle down before you in gage your PTO switch on and then throttle up to PTO speed.
