I am doing my best to try to make apples to apples comparisons among different tractor brands/models.
As you all know, this is tough.
It is especially tough when your are a raw newb, like me!
So, I am looking at hydraulic flow on tractordata.com and comparing the JD 5055E, and Kubota 6060.
The JD info looks like this:
Pump flow: 11.4 gpm [43.1 lpm]
Total flow: 18.2 gpm [68.9 lpm]
Steering flow: 6.8 gpm [25.7 lpm]
The Kubota data looks like this:
Pump flow: 11 gpm [41.6 lpm]
So, do I compare the 11.4gpm to the 11, or do I use the total flow of the JD....which crushes the Kubota?
I have a feeling the "pump flow" numbers, which are very similar, are the numbers to compare....the Kubota just doesn/t have a total flow number that includes the steering flow.
What do you think?
