Anyone know what size 3pt disc mower I should look for to fit a New Holland T4.75? Someone told me a 9ft would be a good fit, does that sound about right? Rear tires are loaded and has a front loader.

We have one hay field that has a long steep hill. My dad mows with the 5525 with a 7ft mower and I use the 6610 with a 8ft mower. If we both start up the hill at the same time he has to downshift gears and slow down but I don't in the Ford it will blow some smoke and pull hard but it doesn't slow down. Both mowers are the same brand New Hollands one is a 615 the other a 616
will a T4.75 be OK with a 7' brush hog? Can I go bigger than 7'. Has a loader and weights. Thanks.
The older Fords do an excellent job with torque management. I've been using a McCormick 105 with the discbines and bush hogs this summer alongside my old Ford 7610 and 7710, all of which are right at 85 pto hp and 268ci turbo 4 cyl's. The McCormick will pull down quicker than the others if you get in heavy grass, but has way more gears to choose from. Pick your poison.The newer tractors might be rated more horsepower but they don't seem to match up to the older tractors as far as actual power.
