At 20 hp at the PTO ...... that is pushing that machine over the magic 5 hp per foot ratio......My dealer has a lightly used Land Pride FDR2584 (84") Mower for sale. Is this too much mower for my L2501 PTO? I have approximately 5 acres of grass to cut and its very flat.
I haven't talked to them about it yet. I just saw it on their website and wanted to know if anyone had real work experience with this combo. I always planned on getting a 72" mower but for an almost new 84" mower priced less than a new 72", I figured it was worth inquiring!Does the dealer know what tractor you plan to run the mower on??? Does he think it will work?
I have an L2800 (23.5 pto hp) and I could run a 7 footer (doesn't even know a 72" is even back there). If the grass isn't high and you don't drive too fast, you might can run it but pretty iffy.
