Re: kubota L175
My L175 came with a Woods L59-K17 belly mower on it. It does a good job and cuts evenly, but the discharge leaves a lot to be desired. It is supposed to discharge out the center towards the rear. It actuakky lets most of the clippings fall out before they get to the discharge chute. I run over a lot of cut grass.
This really isn't a problem, if you don't let the grass get too tall.
The tractor has plenty of power to pull the mower in fifth gear across the yard, as long as I mow it often. If it rains too much, and the grass gets too tall it really wants fourth gear to do a good job. Also if you have trees to go around, fifth gets kind of fast.
I don't think I would put a 72" mower on an L175, between the 60" cut and the ground speed of the tractor, I get done with my yard in half the time it took with a 42" riding mower.
Finish mowers don't like grass over a foot high, that calls for the WD with a brush hog.
If you are talking about a three point finish mower, I thnk a 5 footer might be too big; these tractors have plenty of power, but they are small physically.
