This all got started from your statement that "ain't happening" from a previous post that I will quote.

[/quote]My Branson (made in So. Korea, engine by Tohatsu in Japan under Cummins license) diesel, naturally aspired, 4 cyl., 16.5:1. Torque curve peaks at 1600 which happens to be the rpm my 2000D Ford reaches PTO speed. This engine drives a 57 PTO hp 4wd tractor that I can hook to my 12' 14 shank JD chisel with 10" sweeps and 3 rows of fingers, and pull it in mid range gears just like my JD 100 hp 4230 did. Here's the kicker: I can plow the same acreage in the same time on HALF THE FUEL. Maybe that has something to do with the design. Sure has something to do with my wallet.

The PTO is 2500 rpm if at 540, but it has 3 pto positions and each reaches 540 at a lower rpm depending on how much hp you need to do the job.....saves FUEL.HTH,Mark[/quote]

Your 57 pto HP MFWD isn't going to pull a "TRUE" 14 shank chisel faster or as deep as a JD 4230 100 pto HP or any other brand 100 pto HP tractor for half or twice the diesel fuel. Look at the photo as that's an example of a chisel plow

Around 'here', a 14 shank chisel is gonna take something in the neighborhood of 180-200 hp....for an American-made tractor; imported stuff may do MUCH better. :<)
