    Will my JD 4720 turn a woods rd990x with no problems

    Will my JD 4720 run a Woods RD990x finishing mower without any issues or should I go with the 84 incher for less stress on the tractor. There's a 500lb difference in the mowers but it appears the 990 is built much better and heavier ? Thank ya!

    Your 4720 is rated at 56 PTO hp. The Woods RD 990X is rated for tractors in the 45-75 hp range and the PRD8400 is rated for tractors in the 25-45 range. Sounds like you have too much tractor for the 84" mower but could obviously use it if you were careful. The 90" mower is right in your hp range. As a comparison my neighbor has a 72" Woods finish mower that he pulls with a 29 pto hp tractor and has no problems at all with it.

    Thanks for your response...I bought the 990X yesterday. It's a stud of a mower!
