I found the opposite, we’ve just traded in our Krone 3200cv trailed, found it was a heavy numb thing. Once we got a front mower too it was way too cumbersome. Always assumed also that as your “pulling it” along as well as driving it it needed more power.3m trail mower and flat to the mat. will get just as much (if not more) knocked down as you would struggling with front and backs. you will also get a lot more grass through a 3m trailed than you would a 3m mounted. years ago i used to drive a jd 1360 on 120hp and it would knock down grass a fair bit faster than the contractors 3m mounted moco (which was on 160hp). no doubt there will be even better trail mowers on the market nowadays.
Ts115 and a Jd 1365 is a fine combo.Drove ts 115 with a jd 1365 with giro headstock. She drove it comfortably enough. Mower could of worked a bit faster but i like mowin a wee bit slower as its easier on man and machine. Not a nh fan but i enjoyed drivin her as wasnt big clumsy tractor and had a great cut. Id actually prefer mowin with it than a tm
