    Since we're talking about about stalling out. 4010 enough power?

    I'm looking at starting a chestnut orchard on 30 acres of land. It's been a cattle pasture for the last 50 some years and the chestnut folks say I need to have the property subsoiled to 3' before I plant the trees to help aid with root growth and allowing water to soak in deeper. I've got a JD 4010 which if memory serves pushes 18.5 hp. I was considering getting a County Line subsoiler that goes to 22"and doing it myself rather than paying someone to do it. I know a big tractor could do a better job a lot faster, but I would have to pay for it. Doing it myself would only cost me time and diesel. So do I have enough tractor to do this?

    Not a clue what I'm doing, but it's always lots of fun.

    I have a County Line Subsoiler and have used it with my 2032R. I've sat there with wheels spinning several times. It digs deeper than you'd think and if you hit a good sized rock or tree root it will stop all forward motion cold.

    You can always play with it though. I usually drop down a foot and hit the area with that and then go back a bit deeper on a 2nd pass. Be forewarned though, with that subsoiler mounted on my iMatch, it only clears the ground by an inch or two at full height. If you're driving around with that thing on and drop into any sort of rut it will dig in and leave a big scar in the ground behind you.

    If you need to subsoil to 36",,,
    what possible good would sub-soiling to 22" accomplish??

    That is pretty close to half,, and the hard pan layer is always in the lower part of the soil,,,

    Freeze and roots break the hard pan in the upper area,,,
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I've got a 36" subsoiler behind my 2038r. It will easily stop the tractor on hard dirt easily, any decent rocks or roots will stop it at any depth. It will require a ton of passes on your tractor, and may never be deep enough. I took it to my cousin's this week and his 4066r pulled it handily even is crazy hard pack. I think you need to pay someone, or rent a bigger tractor.

    Did you mean 4110? Because the 4010 has 80 PTO HP.

    At least according to tractordata.com.

    Check again, there are TWO 4010's listed on tractordata. A CUT and a big tractor. Just another one of those cases where JD chose to use the same model number for two tractors that have no similarities.

    How long would it take a big tractor? How big would it need to be. There hasn't been any trees on it for at least 50 years, but big rocks are likely.
