What did the OP ever do to you that you'd give such a terrible recommendation to him???? A tandem hitch tractor for regular day-in day-out work? You sit on that hog for 12 hours and I'll sit on my 4430 for 12 hours and we'll see who can stand and hear at the end of it....
As far as a REASONABLE 2 cylinder tractor, any late A-730 is more than capable of running 200 acres, it's just a matter of how much time you got and what you're planting. In the 50's, lots of 200 acre farms had only 1 or 2 2 cylinder tractors, but those fellas were full-time farmers. They also had half of it in hay, so a fair amount of it wasn't plowed, disked, planted and cultivated every year.
I have 360 acres with 210 tillable and 150 of the tillable acres coming out of CRP next fall (20 is in 'til 2020). I currently have one 2 cylinder - a 1955 60 - and it barely ever comes out of the shed. The work I do now on 40 acres is with a 4430, 4010, 60, and 317 skid steer. AND I'm looking to grab another tractor soon...

Basically, I wouldn't work 200 acres with any 2 cylinder unless I was playing.
