Quite an interesting arguement you got going,heh? I'm not even going to talk tractors because if you are trying to farm thet whole 200 at the same time into the same crop, then first of all you have to learn from those old two cyl how to farm. At a minimun you divide it up three ways depending on the lay of the land and soil type. Hay , winter wheat and soybeans would be my choice but I don't know where you live so will use it just as an example. Sell the hay right out of the field (no equipment needed) , Plant wheat in late Sept/early Oct. Hire it custome harvested next Aug, plany soys in May and harvest in Oct. Again hire it done. Work it a little and put wheat right back in soy ground. Next spring drill soys right in the wheat stubble from last yr. You will only be farming 66 acres at any one time. The hay should be good for 3 yrs so you have 3 yrs with zero work on 66 acres. All you need is a good 10' no-till drill, 8' field digger for when you do need to get it loosened up after few yrs and mounted 3 btm plow and maybe an 8' disc. Hire any spraying done and hire any fertilizer spread. Overhead kills! A 620/630 will do it if done this way and will handle a 3 btm easily. A word of warning is you do know just how old these tractors are. Do you really think you can find one that isn't going to tie you up with break-downs ? And what about rain? No cab? You can no till in the rain with a cab. Farm smart,not hard, that's how the old timers did it. For the same price as a "nice" 630 JD one can get many different 75-85 hp more modern tractors with cab. !970,s era Case , Massey Ferguson even Oliver , were talkin $5000-$6500 which is what a "no problem" 630 will run ya. I love the old put put,s also but would hate to see you hating this little farming venture in the end.
