    Hello all and Merry and Safe Christmas. New here, just bought a 2305 and need some advice on implements from a box blade to a finish mower on what this machine will handle in terms of weight and size. All comments and advice thanked.

    I don't see why you couldn't handle a 72" finish mower with no problems.
    Welcome to the board, you'll love it here, plenty of info to be garnered and good folks sharing it.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    Here is what I can tell you from experience with my 2305..

    60" rear mount finish mower, plus 3 front 42# front weights. The tractor will have enough power for up to 8" grass at a full cut (with slow ground speed).

    48" box blade. No problem with gravel or tillable dirt. For light work you can use a 54" or even a 60", but to pull a full box, stick to the 48.

    60" rear blade. I used mind to grade a gravel drive. At full angle the 60" will cover the tire tracks. Unless it is designed as a limited cat 1 you will not be able to lift it very high and can be an issue going over uneven terrain, but for the drive it will work fine.

    48" rotary cutter for heavy grass only and I would recommend a good slip clutch to protect your PTO.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    As far as a Box Blade goes.... After Lots of research on the subject.... It kind of boils down to the soil your going to work and the capabilities of your tractor. Here it's "Full" of roots and rocks.... I opted for the 48" behind the 26R. If I opted for anything bigger I was concerned about the tractor bogging more than a bigger blade was worth. I wanted to do work and not work to do it.

    I have a 4 ft. box blade I use on mine, don't use a finish mower since I have 62" MMM.
