What size tractor do I need for a 7 ft bush hog?
Silver Member. Your PTO HP should be 5HP per foot ( width ) for things like a finishing mower, rotary cutter, tiller, etc. So for a 7 ‘ bushhog you should look at least 35HP @ the PTO and for a 9’ bushhog you should look at least 45HP @ the PTO. This is just a general rule of thumb.
How do you engage the PTO on a Kubota tractor?
Lift the hydrostatic lever–located below the steering wheel–to set the cruise control. Depress the clutch with your foot. Push forward on the lever below the console, on the left, to shift the power-take-off ( PTO ) into gear. Release the clutch to engage the PTO.
How a PTO works on a tractor?
The tractor’s stub shaft, often called the PTO, transfers power from the tractor to the PTO -driven machine or implement. Power transfer is accomplished by connecting a drive shaft from the machinery to the tractor’s PTO stub shaft. The PTO and drive shaft rotate at 540 rpm (9 times/sec.) or 1,000 rpm (16.6 times/sec.)

How much horsepower does a 6ft Bush Hog need?
The general rule of thumb is 5 PTO hp per foot of rotary cutter. So a 6 footer calls for 30 PTO hp or better.
What size tractor do I need to pull a 15 ft batwing?
Rhino and Jd recommend minimum of 55-60 hp for their 15 ‘ batwing mowers.
How wide should a Bush Hog be?
A 5′ wide will probably work for clipping pastures, mowing tall fescue heads and weeds, but not down in the thick stuff or hay. A 4 ‘ wide would probably be better for lower cuts in thick grass, but I just don’t think it will be heavy duty enough for 5’ tall brush and saplings.
