    It's MUCH more than HP to me. Weight, ballast, tire type and size, gearing, and MFWD

    In my opinion it's more about the gearing, weight distribution, and traction. Think about the Deere A model which has 34 horsepower and what you could do with that in the field.

    Anyone that relies strictly on HP is a fool. My Deere D160 riding mower is 25hp - the same as a 2025R. But that is where all comparisons between the two machines ends.

    When a person buy a tractor will think that a 26 hp tractor will be more powerfull than a 16hp but that is not true deere x540 vs kubota b7100

    Disregarding your calling people asking a question "fool", selecting a tractor for a specific application does require a combination of HP & HP at the drawbar, gear ratios, manual or hydrostatic tranny, weight to Hp ratio, tires & more specs & the intended main use of the machine.

    Have to remember comparing Diesel to Gas,,,, big difference when looking at the end results.

    Like they say,, lets compare Apples to Apples ,,,,not Apples to Oranges.

    Then have to compare as others have said ,ballast, gearing , transmission , tires.

    With diesel you can do things at idle , that takes 3/4-full throttle on a gas.

    Give me enough weight and gearing, and all I need is 30hp to pull an 8 bottom.
    Granted, it will take a week to turn 40A, but it's still only 30hp.

    Never, ever, take a bet that your new 2-3 series Deere can pull a 30hp antique...Never.



    Come to think of it...don't make a bet that your 7 series will pull a 100hp Antique either...especially this one.




    Draw bar HP rating is to get an idea of what you have to work with, when everything else is considered.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
