I'll take a Farmall H any day over an 8n Ford or even a John Deere A, and yes, I said John Deere A.

A Farmall H, in good condition and tuned up properly will easily pull itself in 5th gear on the road and will do so even on hills. An empty hay wagon will effect it very little and several folks on a hay ride shouldn't bother it all that much either.

I'd bet on the "A" for lugging power.
The "H" would have to drop a gear in places Old Johnny die down to 2 second breaths .

I have an H that is guttless too. I was thinking mine was a distillate engine originally therefore built for low compression. It has the 3rd hole in the hood for a gasoline tank. Mine will at least pull hills in 5th gear with no major load. These are not NW Iowa sized hills though.

My dad has a super H and it has power comparable if not more than his worn out M. It makes me wonder if the H that you are speaking of has not been rebuilt to super H specs.

I would take 4 clyinder power over 2cylinder any day of the week. They sound nice but that is about it in my opinion. Very crude old beasts until the 3000 and 4000 series in the 60's.

You must not have much in the way of hills. Here is a picture of my drive way. Neither of the two "H" Farmalls would pull this hill in road gear empty. Put a wagon behind them and it had better be empty or you would come down it back wards.

I am not a big two cylinder/hand clutch fan but a JD "A" would drag an Farmall "H" around all day long. You are comparing two different size tractors.

Those hills in your picture tell me that there was something wrong with your tractors, they should handle those hills just fine.

Leroy neither of those Farmall "H" tractors have been on this farm since 1975. They where in good running condition. That hill you all are saying is nothing will whip a 450 horse power semi going out with a load of grain. That small hill is a 8% slope. It is steeper than it looks. Plus the Farmall "H" we had where both older one that did not have Super H parts in them. They both where bought new and where rated at 21 belt horse power on the original invoices.

The only trouble with those Farmall "H" tractors was that they where under powered for there size and had a real fast road gear.

Also guys trying to make me defend a JD two cylinder is a lost cause. They where a crude tractor that just about put JD out of business. I personally collect the 10 series and newer. I am not a fan of hand clutches or hand brakes. So I only have a few of the older JDs that the family had.

Plus the original poster has a clutch problem that is unrelated to how much horse power his tractor has. He can't get the power to the wheels.

Neb test Eary JD A draw bar 18 hp, max pull 2923 lbs IH H draw bar hp 24 hp, max pull 3603 looks like the H wins.. I have 2 h's one with firecraters one stock and a SH . The stock one would pull a 2 bottom plow with a JD about even in the field, the other 2 would lap a JD a plowing. Sounds like a clutch problem and a good tune-up on 50 year old tractors would make a hugh difference.

You definitely need to have an IH mechanic work on those 2 Hs. That hill is nothing. Any properly tuned Farmall H wouldn't even break a sweat pulling that hill in road gear.

My hill is no way near yours. True about the JD A versus the Farmall H as far as size but I have seen a Super C run this route just fine which is why I figured the H would be good to go.

Your Hs have problems. The one we had growing up would drop to 4th to pull a loaded hay wagon up that hill but would pull itself (no load) up something like that with no issues. It's not like ours was in all that great of shape either.
