    New Woods finish mower

    After looking for a good used mower for a month and coming up empty.
    The sad part looking for used was they were rusted far more than what the ad said, need much more work to get them to run will. Like bearings, PTO shaft, tires.
    Then I decided to go new. Most dealer were out of stock or coming in about 3 weeks.
    My JD dealer needed 3 weeks and the same with Land Pride.
    I then found a Woods PDR7200. The price was fair and in stock.
    I'm happy with it work well and nothing to work on. Just hook up and mow. They also gave me a Woods hat.

    JKR,

    That's a very nice finish mower. I'd love to see some photos of the lawn after being mowed. Noticed you still have your 3033R chained up. Do you leave them on all year long? Good luck.

    No. I will take the chains off soon. I been moving some trees that I cut down and it was very muddy. The chains help a lot.
    The tractor needs a bath full of mud.
    The little that I used the Woods mower it works real good. I like how the new PDR mower increase the blade tip speed to 18,000 it just pull the grass up and cuts it off with out tire marks.

    JKR,

    That's nice.

    If you don't already have them, I'd suggest installing a chain limiting kit. This will support the mower at the desired cutting height; and keep the mower's weight off the gauge wheels.

    I could see something like this for a Bush Hog but when used with a finish mower wouldn't the height of the cut vary as the rear wheels of the tractor goes over bumps? As opposed to the gauge wheels following the contour of the ground?

    Those mowers are FANTASTIC!!! I had an 84" model before selling it to my brother, and they will flat out beat the quality of yard mowing when compared to the 60" MMM. If I had it to do it over again, I would forego the MMM and purchase that exact unit.

    I loved the rear discharge, it distributes the clippings evenly. While the chain kit would be nice, it's designed to run on the wheels and will handle the weight just fine.

    Not what someone who is considering switching from a RM to MM wants to hear...
