    If you're running wheel spacers 60" will barely be outside the rears. Maybe an inch. But I would still run a 60" so at least you know if the tractor fits down the trail...so will the cutter. I have been wanting a bush hog for some time. Still haven't come across one I like.

    I agree a 60" would probably work best in the woods, though you easily have enough HP to run a 72". What you'll need to look at are good rugged cutters for handling 2".

    I picked up a 60" for my 3033R and the biggest reason is I used the neighbors 72" and the weight difference is unbelievable. Both King Kutter's 40HP gearbox with shear pin. Only difference is the 12"s. I

    know it hangs out farther but as dumb as it sounds if feels like you have double the weight.

    I also like the same width as the tractor aspect. I have a lot of rocks and we put the 60" EA grapple down and if I catch a rock I can get it out of the way before I completely destroy the brush hog.

    I actually bought a used one for $500 and will upgrade when I get all my rocks picked, if I'm not dead yet.

    That is a good idea.

    I run a RC2072 on my 2038R. I have open fields that are flat. It works fine for that, but if I was doing woods and trails, definitely a 60 inch. 72 inch cutter would be too large for that tractor on uneven and rough ground.

    After running the 10' flexwing a 72" would seem less exciting. I'd still like to see that tractor run that flexwing in some good thick fields.
