Horsepower Per Acre For Mowing Only ?

Recommended Posts

Here is average mowing per hour with different deck sizes. Horsepower is pretty much up to each OEM. I have a Sunstar 20HP with a 48" and that is for the most part overkill unless you get into knee deep grass. Then it is a matter of the deck being able to blow out those gobbs of grass. http://www.ferrisindustries.com/m_productivity.php

Five Lawnboys @ 3-1/2 HP each, one 7010-6 @ 10 HP, one 3112H upgraded to 16 HP and one Sunstar @ 20 HP for about 1/5 acre and if I use Maynards math equation, that comes up to 315 HP per acre.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
