will a Farmall A with a 6ft woods belly mower work ok to cut my lawn? Seems a little big for this tractor, but will be cutting weekly. Should I walk away or look further?

thanks! :help:

If the A is in reasonable condition it will handle it fine.

That is the exact mower built for that tractor. Like BD said, if it's in reasonably good running condition, it will handle it with ease.

I have a woods 6' mower on my A and it cuts fantastic! 3rd gear 12" tall not problem!

I would say that a good strong A should be able to handle that mower just fine. My Super A handles the L59 without issues, and the 140 really has no problem. However, I would not try mowing tall or very heavy grass in anything but 2nd and below. Keep your blades nice and sharp, make sure the front of the deck is a bit lower then the back, and you should be going like a Boeing in no time. These mowers cut really well, and will give years of good service if taken care of.
