The rotary cutter is for a category 1 tractor which would fit on up to a 45 HP tractor. It does require 540 RPM on the PTO to engage the mower.

I've used a 48inch rotary cuttery on a subcompact 24hp New Holland tractor (tractor fits into the back of a pickup) The cutter worked very well. The only issue is that we needed to add some balast to the front of the tractor.
