Brad, I am glad to hear that the forward speed is not very high at all, but I just wonder how it is managing to make a good cut when running as slowly as you say. When a mower is only running slowly it tends to shave the end of the grass stalks and they dry out with the sun and then everything looks very white and not at all nice and green like we usually like to see it.
Regarding the PTO speed, it shouldn't harm the tractor although the mower may not like it too much. If there is any amount of grass to be cut, the blades will be striking the grass and swinging on their pivots all the time instead of being held more or less rigid by centrifugal force, this will of course depend on how thick the grass being cut actually is.
Glad to hear that you found the mower much easier to handle after setting it up as I suggested, you wife knows a good thing when she sees it...lol Perhaps you could try the mower running at 3/4 throttle 3rd gear and see what difference it makes, although if it is a sparse growth it wont take much power to cut, it is just the speed of the blades that may make a difference to the quality of cut and they should be kept as sharp as possible all the time. Could you let me know how it works out please. Would you email me direct and then I will see it...John(UK)...email@example.com
