I had the 3038 with 5 ft woods finish mower pull behind and sold all that and got the 3046r with 6ft pull behind. I like that set up. Have not done the mmm but still like my set up.Having a difficult time deciding whether to go with the 72" MMM or a 72" pull behind. Going with a pull behind would save a considerable amount of money in my configuration. Which do you use and why?
I think the cut quality of mine is better than many high quality commercial machines.Cliebold,
Do you find that it gives a good quality cut? I forgot to add in original post if using a pull behind is it a side or rear discharge. If rear does it clump up? also on pull behind do you find when turning around and the mower swings around does it dig up grass? Thanks for your input.
Also what length trailer is that????
I agree, my 84" RFM with rear discharge uses about the same HP and my 72"MMM side discharge. Better dispersal of clippings and not working so hard to push all the grass off to the side, no chute clogging.....Although I use a zturn for the majority of my mowing I do have a 6' woods rfm and it actually gives a nicer cut than the zturn. If I used a rfm more I would get rid of my 6' and go bigger. I never use it on anything taller than 6-7" and the tractor doesn't even know it's back there for my uses. I have had mmm's and they wasn't the nice drive over decks that's available now. I had to wrestle the stupid things out from under the tractor when I wanted to do anything with it that didn't include mowing and wrestle it back under there to mow again, I hated them. Even with the deck off I had linkage under there to worry about when I was bushhogging or working in a woods with the tractor.
I suggest a rear discharge, I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with one verses a side discharge.
When you guys say "tall", just how tall is "tall"??I have a 3033R with a 72" auto connect MMM. In short grass the cut is good and the auto connect is very nice, but like others have said, clogging becomes an issue in taller grass. I've actually slugged mine a couple times and brought the whole operation to a halt and that was going very slow!
Hiya,Thanks for all the input, I decided to go with a 72 inch woods pull behind rear discharge, model PRD7200. It is a monster, can't wait to try it out.
