I'll get lynched,but as somebody who used a 730 diesel as my main tractor for a while,try an 830 or something. They're a beautiful tractor to look at,but they pushed the 2 cylinder too far on those 730s and they knew it.

I would agree with Mr. Lund & this is coming from a guy who still farms with many 2cyls.. As for draw bar pull the 730 & 830 are as good
& more efficient than many tractor that size.
As for PTO use Deere reached their limits or
I guess surpassed smooth PTO operation. I believe
75 to 100 horse 4wd is all we need to run the 300+ acers we run around on for a big tractor.
if the 2cyls had diff. lock & better cabs avail,
they might be more popular, but they Don't. We
still use them & thats because we can keep them going rather cheaply.

Randy, just wondering how it was to sit 8 or 10 hours or more on your 730 and if it was more tiring than other tractors?

Not really. It was a comfortable tractor to drive. Nice seat and suspension,steering wheel placement was good,enough leg room.
