I wouldn't go any larger than 6', but a 5' is probably a better choice. I have a 5' back blade on a similar sized tractor, and it works great. I have a 6' tine rake aerator that I made for the same tractor, and it works ok but is a bit wide and REALLY easy to catch on things.

Sounds good. I was looking at both the 6 and 5 foot models. Leaning towards the 6 just because I could the use it on my IH 2444. Will the 154 3pt lift a 6 foot rake?
