    MX5 Rotary cutter with 2032R?

    I am looking to purchase a MX5 Rotary Cutter for my 2032R... any input on that combination? I have 112 acres with about 20 field the rest woods. I have a road going back to a hunting cabin back in the woods. Thanks for your input.

    Iím also looking at rotary cutter options. Iíve learned the rule of thumb is one foot of cutter for every 5 PTO horsepower. However there is some wiggle room there depending what type of material is being cut. I ran a 4ft cutter on my 2025 this past summer with no trouble at all reclaiming some overgrown pastures with saplings and some thick grass. Iím looking at 5 footers now to cover more ground since the heavy cutting is done. My machine has less power than yours so Iím sure the mx5 would be fine for you no matter what you need to cut and even bigger would do well if you wanted it.
    Just my $.02

    I run a 5' land pride in my 2520 in heavy pasture grass and have no horsepower problems. The front end is light when I pick it up If I don't have the loader on, I must use MFWD to steer.

    MX5= 60 inch mower. I don't think it would be an issue since people run 60" cutters on 2R tractors all the time.

    I have a '16 2032R and regularly use a 60" Frontier rotary cutter on tall grass to brush to small saplings and the tractor and cutter have handled it with ease.

    I have a 2032 and 60" Frontier brush hog. I run my loader bucket curled back and about 4" off ground to find any hidden surprises. None yet.
    I have found and scalped several ant hills about a meter around and half meter high. I stop over the hills and really mess up there day.

    I have cut 1 1/2" saplings and grass over a meter high with no problem. Just slower going in some spots. This all in two pastures unused and left wild for several years. Just one mowing has made a big improvement in the quality of the grazing material.

    I run a 60Ē flail on my 2025R which is only about 19 PTO HP, and have no problems. Your tractor should have no issues with that setup.

    I don't have an MX5 but I do have an MX8 and MX6 and they are heavy cutters. You may be ok if you are doing light cutting with it but I am not sure how well it would work in heavy grass or brush. If you go with the MX5 I would make sure that you have enough weight on the front end to keep the cutter from trying to lift the front end off of the ground. I really like the 2 that I have and they are well made so I don't think you would be disappointed with the MX series cutter

    I ran a 5 foot cutter on a 32hp tractor with no problem.

    If it really gets thick, you don't have to take a full bite.

    BTW, sounds like you have a very nice property.
