Don't know if I'd agree with that, that's saying 8hp per foot would be around a 10 foot disc, that's not right, you can pull a 10 foot disk with a 88 oliver, and with a 1855 with a 10 foot disc, you'd pull it like a plow not a disc. I'd say it pull a 15-18 foot disc pretty easy, and you'd go plenty deep.

Lol... We"re talking about a 310 gas engine that had 90 hp when it was new. You"ll hurt it trying to pull an 18" disc at any real depth running at any real speed. Sure, like the other guy said, hook it up and run 2.5 mph. Lol. Waste of time and fuel. I"d look for a nice 12-14" disc so the tractor is happy turning some dirt at 5 mph.

I don't know, guess its whatever he wants to do, in light soil it would pull a 18 footer easy. Ten foot is hardly gonna be past the tires, only about 2ft on each side, it isn't gonna look right. We used to pull a 45 foot Krause with a 4694 case up tell a Few years ago, that was only 220 pto hp, which is under 5hp per foot, and would pull it plenty deep in heavy black soil at around 4.5mph, now we put the 4900 Massey on it, and we can rip the disc apart, we don't even try putting on the 9400 Deere or 435 case, or we won't have a disc left. Hope you have luck with your 1855, should work good.
