I inherited a 2012 5045E. It's a great low hour tractor. I want to buy a Woods batwing. It requires 34hp at the PTO. This tractor produces 37hp at the PTO. I know enough to know that it won't work pulling up hills where I live (unless I crawl).
I wonder if anyone has had success tuning it to increase the HP? I think an extra 15hp would work.
I worked on/off in JD dealer parts dept from '65-'87. I can't imagine the added difficulty with all the different models of today. I have difficulty understanding the need for so many different models in the identical horsepower categories. After all there's only a limited number of ways one can change options
