I don't what your point is.Now you have dropped back to comparing a cheaper tandem hitch set of R's. which have similar HP to a 2WD 4230 but two drive axles. Then commence to call the 2WD useless .
Now you turn around and say that comparing a M4WD 4455 , even a 4055 with two drive axles isn't fair?
We still have the M4WD 4050 as home with the NA 466. Other than you, who thinks the tandem hitch R is superior ?

Buick If you read the original post . The man asked opinions on which TWO CYLINDER ( NOT 4 or 6 cylinders) tractor would be best for 200 acres. This entirely omits your 30,& 55 series 404's & 466's, NA or not, front assist or not. I never said they were junk either, apparently you & Williamaybe have trouble with reading & comprehension? This all started with him saying a 75 hp tractor "WILL NEVER" do the tillage work of a 100hp tractor & I commenced to explain IMO why & how it can. Then you brought in the modern tractors again. As far as the tandem hitch R, yes it has two sets of driven tires BUT ITS made of TWO CYLINDER tractors, as the man asked. Everyone agrees one 2 cyl has a tall order to till 200 acres in a week & I gave a suggestion on one way to do it faster & still use 2 cyl machines. Obviously a newer machine is superior in many ways- if not we'd still be driving brand new R's, or riding horses to work. A nicely done tandem hitch is easier & smoother to steer & drive than a single 2 cyl tractor, power steering & all tires are big, & weight. It's like an articulating 4wd. As far as noise, none of my two cylinders with a late oval muffler are as loud as a 4230 is inside the cab. 2 R's with oval 830 mufflers & a 3' pipe above it would not be as loud IMO as the 4230, screaming away at 2200rpm & the whining tranny. The gas ones can barely be heard, even under full load. Get yourself some new mufflers. I wear ear plugs in the 4230 sickle mowing & it has a brand new Jd muffler on it. And yes it has air conditioning but again he asked opinions on TWO CYLINDER machines. And to anyone, this is just my take on the subject & I did not come here to argue or p oop on anyone's parade. I have witnessed 75 hp tractors doing the same work as 100hp ones & that's a fact, take it as you may it's no skin off my back.
