Comparing fuel economy of 57 pto hp vs an 80-116 pto hp tractor isn't comparing apples to apples & oranges to oranges. I agree it will be interesting to see how these newer plastic/electronic tractors hold up but I've read of some YT members that have operated some of the newer ones way up over 10,000 hrs.

Well Jimbo sir, that's all I have for a comparison.

But we have kicked this old dog before and I am impressed at what work function I get out of this new one, whether you believe it or not and I may have fudged a little on the Hay King...but I had mud that far up the shanks....maybe it's because I ran it tilted back rather than horizontal and the mud included loose dirt as well as from the surface down.

And didn't you mention the other day that you have an orange one in your yard alongside your beloved green? Grin

In jest.

If you'll notice my original post was not directed at you but I was only making a statement.

I do have a 65 pto hp Orange tractor but I'm certainly not stating that it will outperform any color(green or otherwise) of nearly twice the hp. I also don't understand why you choose to bring my Kubota tractor into this thread :wink:

In have both and the computers and plastic are offset by comfort and economy.Certain older tractors have great resale partly due to the high cost of new ones.I have had nice original New Gen tractors that have sold for double their original value and I have new ones that are worth less everyday and can only be repaired at a JD service center.We are doing 10 times the work with 5 times the H.P.and half the fatigue.I like old cars and horses but main the reason is to get the feeling of younger days and that is priceless.I wouldnt trade my wife for a new model as I could not afford it.She might.
