That's 347 acres and I am assuming you aren't planting the same crop in all of it at same time. Along with what you allready have why would you need any more than another 110 hp tractor?? All 110 tractors are not created equal either. A MM and Case 110 hp have 504 cubic inches and 5" stroke and gov speed is 1800 rpm on MM and 2000 on Case. The White 105/110 both have only 354 CID and depend on a turbo and hi rpm (2200-2400) to get the same power. Which do you think will lug better and last longer? You allready know if you have all those MM,s. That G1000 with 110 will pull and lug as good as the JD , Ollie , IH , White , AC or Ford rated at 125 hp. As far as the implement dealer and his 10 hp per foot rule....that means a 75 hp Case 870 will do well to barely cover it's rear wheel tracks?? yea , right.

I agree, I always argue on that 10hp per foot rule, old tractors will pull way better than new ones, and out weigh them to. Bottom line is they just used to put a lot of cubic inches in the MMs especially.

My dad used to have a GTB. He said it would pull 4-16s in alfalfa at idle or wide open, didnt matter (they only ran 1100 under load). He always said they had "bigger" horses back then lol....
