I wonder why has it taken this long for 5 cyl engines to be utilized in farm tractors. It has to be more to this than chassis length or balancer shafts.

SAME/Lamborghini/Hurlimann used them in thier tractors, really sweet running. The John Deere lump is much more efficient at making noise!

Thanks for the replies. One thing that started me to thinking about 5 cyl engines was that back a few months I sold an orange tractor that had a 5 cyl engine. It wasn't that fuel efficient nor was it that powerful.

Kubota used a 5 cylinder engine in the L4850/L5450 tractors in the '90's.

Nice running, smooth engines. Power was OK, never heard any complaints, but I never heard about economy. They must have had a changing of the guard at engineering, because the replacement series used turbo 4's. Maybe just emissions though. Never did any major work to those 5 cylinder engines. They had a neat sound.
