There's easier than the little ones most of the time...
2240 is roughly the same size.

hit enter before finished.

contrast that 2240 split to one I did on my much, much smaller farmall C. I don't think it took 45m by myself to get split. in fact.. it may have taken 30m. much smaller.. much lighter.. easier to manipulate.

after my heart problems a couple years ago.. I've been scraping the bottom of the BBL and only doing smaller projects.. that case VAC and the farmall C.. a dearborn plow.. etc..

Oh well.. the 5000's gonna need a clutch whether I want to do it or not. can't change that.

I forsee my wife coming home and seeing the 5000 taken apart on the driveway.. :)

i can't imagine bigger being easier to split than smaller.. just looking at weight issue and all.

with a friend and a 'here hold this and stay out of the way' helper, I had that 2240 split in about 2 hours, after fighting with the hydro lines on the right side.

that was in a nice enclosed shop with concrete floor, overhead hoist, lotsa floor jacks and stands.

my shop's got none of that. :)

I'll be lucky if I can use my stepdads shop... :)

With small tractors... I think more in terms of the jap imports. They're harder to split than a 5000 if you're using jacks... I find it generally takes 3 floor jacks and 8 arms to manipulate the little tractors around because they want to topple over or the rear end wants to lift before the mis section when you're jacking...
The easiest tractor anyone could ever hope to split is a 2wd 10 series row crop. Ya don't even remove the hood on those old dolls. Just rub their belly.... and they spread.
