Brent, Regarding your message #4091 "Anyone ever used a Swisher Trail Mower?". Son of a gun..... just "found" this (see link). Kent sure has alot of stuff.[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/New_in_1969/3112_features.htm']http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/New_in_1969/3112_features.htm[/a]

Now the tough part - finding one, or two, of those units. Pics may be enough to copy from though. Thanks for the tip dutch. You're right, Kent sure does have a lot of stuff on here. Brent

Brent, Using vert. shaft engines and making your own would be great. Note that the tractor mounted deck blows grass onto the left trailing deck's mow path. You could make your own "monster" trailing mower with angle iron frame and plywood or sheet steel plates, 120 inches and 5 to 8 blades and 20 HP vert. engine, with rear discharge like Dixie Choppers or bush hogs (more plate bodies) Many old decks were made boxy and from flat sheet steel (read that cheap and easy, but not necessarily junk). I am getting an Economy with 48" deck that used to belong to my wife 20 years ago before I met her. The deck is built of plate with square corners, and rides on a shaft of rollers like my Simplicities, but no rollers under the deck (as far as I know). A trailing mower with vert. shaft engine was an option for Economy tractors. See the link below for another answer to more width by a "Dutch" type Wheelhorser. bobjack[A href='http://www.ejourney.com/~dgarver/page11.html']http://www.ejourney.com/~dgarver/page11.html[/a]
