Default 10hp NF with 48" deck

Hey guys i was wondering if anyone has experience with a NF with a 10hp engine running one of those QA 48" mower decks? I have a cub 72 with 10hp on it and wondered if it would be too much to to mow with or if it should be run with a 12hp? Thanks for your inputs

Welcome to OCC.........

A lot of variables to matching up Horse Power with Mower Deck Cutting widths. 48" on a 10 HP tractor is pushing it and having the right conditions. The 38" or 42" would be better suited.

FWIW:
I used a 210 John Deere with a 46" deck for 12 years, cutting anything I run over, it has the same 10 hp kohler that Cub Cadet has.
Sold it to a friend and it is still is running, that is 21 years steady operation I know of.

I have use 38" decks and 48" decks on the same tractor and other than cutting width I noticed no difference. I think the only place you'd tax it is in too tall or wet grass.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
