    44" King Kutter Rotary Cutter

    I've gotten a good deal on a 44" King Kutter rotary cutter. Should my 1025R handle that size cutter?
    Thanks

    I have a 48" KK, my 1026 works well with. Some use a 5' and report good results.The 1023,1025 and 1026 are 48ish wide. Not sure I'd want a mower that wasn't as wide as the tractor.

    I cut mine with an angle grinder utilizing a cut-off disc. Clamped it up in a vise, measured twice and cut three times, but still came out too short (only kidding).
    I cleaned the inside up with a deburring tool, and the outside burrs I dusted off with a sanding disc on the grinder. Plastic shields can be cut with a utility knife.

    Measured 3 or four times and cut it withe a saw's all. Worked great and am amazed and some of the tress I was able to take down with that little cutter. Best investment I have ever made was buying my 1025R as well!!
