there is a lot of variables, here first the H if its a regular H is rated at 24 horsepower, about the same as a ford N series, the reason it makes the N look bad is the H is much larger, heavier, and is better geared and thus it is able to pull much better and get more done than a ford N series, but very few tractors will pull good in the top gears road gear is mainly for transporting the tractor from one field to the next the next lower is for light work, say pulling something like a empty wagon, if your a jd man, you are used to a tractor with a completely different set of operating perimeters, the jd makes its pulling power with a massive amount of weight in motion, at a low rpm, this will allow it to keep lugging thru a hard spot in the field without stalling, or pull a loaded wagon at low rpm the H makes its power with rpm, meaning it has to be wound up more than the jd does to do the same work, once the rmp drops, so does the ability to keep lugging, pulling a hay ride wagon will depend on the size of the wagon, the number of people on it, and how steep the hill is that you going up, the last ride i pulled i had a 16 foot trailer, and 12 people on it, and power was a farmall cub, in 2nd gear, but the ground i was on was almost perfectly flat and hard, or the cub would not have done it, if both H's behave the same way from 2 different sources, im betting the tractor is fine, just have to drop it a gear down and enjoy the ride
