I have a 1355, and it is easy to drive, with excellent brakes and power steering. The three speed in the 1355 is a great upgrade over the ampli-torq in most molines. I haven't been around a 3 speed ampli-torq, but I know parts are hard to find for those, not so much with the oliver 3 speed. The 585 just needs the external oil pump for reliability and it will run for a long time. I use mine for tractor pulling, and it is plenty strong. I have a Vista as well, I like to drive it more because of the high seating position, but I think I would rather farm with the 1355

How does the 1355 seem to pull. Have you plowed with it or done any tillage work. Have a 2-155 white I really like pull a 5 bottom plow with it but when it pulls hard the front end will come up needs a set of weights on the front but we also have very heavy soil up here

I have not done any plowing with it, but it pulls real nice. Like all Moline engines it has plenty of torque. It has never gotten the front end up pulling. There is a lot of weight on the front with the engine and cast iron grille. You may need some weight on the front in heavy soil, but I don't think it would be a problem. If you have a 2-155, then you understand what I mean about the three speed, and its ability to split gears.

Ya the 3 speed works well, but shift it all the way down from over to under in road gear or it will take it out, don't go to direct otherwise you can feel it drag, if you put it in under it rolls free
