Never a fan of any V-8 diesel, too much vibration too little lugging ability. Had a 3208, didn't care for it. How hard is your 18 working? Guess, I'd need more info on what you consider working hard. Also, Is every thing up to snuff.....injectors, fuel pump, oil pressure, turbo?

If nothing more than heavy field work....2255 or 2-135/155

If needing tractor for other lighter duty jobs, you'd be better off with what you have or a 2-110 ect.

We pull a 13' Hesston moco with a 1755 in 3rd over and rarely shift down due to lack of horses.

I pull a 10' John deere with impellers. In heavy hay the tractor smokes hard the hole time, and 4th gear is a struggle. Also some chisel plowing with 7 shanks. The 1855 is nice because it is not too big to rake hay, pull wagons, or any other job. Has been rebuilt with updates, and has oil cooler, but still makes me nervous. I have never been around a 2255, but was thinking if it wasn't too big for the small jobs, it would have plenty of power for the harder jobs. Josh
