||I have an 8N (1949?)and want to add a brush hog to mow my orchard. What size would work best on it,4,5 or 6 foot? Also the bucket when full tends to drop, so the hydraulics may need work.
Any advise? Thanks, Phil
|| I have a 9n with a 6 foot brush hog on it it wouldnt hardly run it until i ported and polished the intake and exhaust ports and a 3 angle valve job does fine now
||I have a 5 ft on my 9N that does a good job without porting or polishing. The tractor is stock and I brush hog approx 8 acres of tall weeds and small blackjack trees. Make sure you have a clutch pto or it will push you when you want to stop.
||I have a 6 ft on mine, but mine is a 52 funk conversion, meaning it has a six cylinder in it,more power than stock, but I have friends and a brother-in-law that have regular 8N tractors and they have no problem pulling and cutting with a 6 ft mower. You will have to have a good hydralic system, and they do make the front ends light. You may have to uses your brakes more to turn sharp!
Hope this helped!!!
||We have a 1939 9N with a 5ft. hog and we take care of 100 acres worth of hunting land. It does want to bog sometimes but it does great considering the horsepower!
