the mf 35 is more tractor than the 8n, but either will pull wood of this size provided its done propperly and that means no 3 point hitch, lifting with a 3 point on a light tractor like a n or similer almost garentees the front wheels will go flapping in the air, you must hook to the drawbar under the rear axle, the line of pull must be below the axle centrline to lessen the chance of rearing up. all tractors will rear up if the mechanical advantage of the log, the size of the log and the hitchpoint is high enough , ive pulled many logs with a old 2n, and my jubilee, obviously the jub was way better , the way i did it most of the time was since the logs were long, but thin, 18 inches down to 6 or so, i backed the tractor over the log and attached the log to the middle of the tractor [ the 2n doesnt have a under axle drawbar] with a chain, the land was gentle rolling ground and i never had a problem, the jubilee has the under the axle drawbar and chained to that i never had any problem either, just use common sence hook the log as low as possible and pratical for the terraine, dont attempt to climb any hills with a log in tow, thats extreamy dangerous if your in steep hill country you would be better off using a winch to drag the logs up
