Here is a table I created a while ago showing the speeds of a few different tractors. I got these numbers mostly from the operators manuals.


Comparison of ground speed MPH at 1500 RPM

Good diff between the two. I'd have to go check the tractormeter to see the actual speed diff, but i think it's about 1-1.5mph..

Most of my tractor time is brush hogging with a 5ft hog. I run 1H if I'm just clipping off a pasture. 3L if it's a good foot. 2L if it's up to the hood. 1L if it's brush to the hood.

1957 TO35 gas:
I plow in third low pulling 3-12" My uncle could plow in first high pulling 2-14's with MF35.

So there many be some differences in hp and gearing of the different models.

Also difference in ground hardness that is being turned.

I have used a 5ft tiller with my tractor and it did a great job in the lower gears, second low.

The little TO35 is a fine little tractor for the jobs it was designed to do.

First gear high is quite a bit higher than 3rd gear low. I don't know by how much but there are some things I can do in 3rd low that I can't do in 1st high.
