Will a 4044m hydrostat be able to handle a 8ft lift rotary cutter or would I be better off buying a high dollar rhino ts10 that is rated for 30 pto hp? Long story short is that I do tractor work on the weekends for extra cash and it mainly involves brush hogging 1 to 20 acres with one of my 6ft cutters. Once or twice a year I will get a job to do 80 or 100 acres to mow. When that happens I have my dad help me with his 5105 and a old 10ft howse mower I rebuilt and my 4044m with a 6ft cutter. That works fine since it used to be rare for such a big job. But I currently picked up a contract to mow a customers 80 acres every 2 or 3 weeks and would like to get it done quicker. Now ideally I would love to buy a 5075 with another 10ft or 12ft mower but cant afford it at the time since I just bought my 4044m this year and am still paying on it. Trading my 4044m in is not an option either because it is the perfect size tractor for the majority of my other jobs and fits in all the right spaces that the 5105 wont. Plus the hydrostat cuts down on mowing times around objects or trees. So would I be okay with running a heavy 8ft 3 pint mount on my 4044m for mowing the 80 acres. Cause I'm kind of right there at or under the hp required but then again the grass I'll be mowing wont be very tall since I have to cut it so often. Now I know it wouldn't be able to handle 4ft tall material but I can normal find a good 8ft mower around 2k to 3k. My other option that I'm trying to stay away from is buy a low hp pull 10ft cutter from rhino that normally go for around 9k or 10k. I would prefer the rhino ts10 but that would be stretching me out financially with me in the process of buy a 30ft gooseneck this winter as well.
So for the long write up. Just trying to give as much info on my situation as possible. Thanks
