i posted in tractor talk about a week ago looking for tractors of various makes that would have 80pto hp to run a discbine. no one mentioned any AC tractors. minimum requirement is live pto (540), one or 2 live hydraulic remotes, and row crop is preferred.
what models of AC would be good for this purpose/power requirement. and are AC very heavy compared to other tractors of the same hp class? (like how fords tend to be lighter than the IH models they compete against)

I have found discbinds that need 60hp., Agco and Newholland both make them. I'm looking for one to pull behind my D-19, my D-19 has four outlets and about 65hp. Jeff

we currently use a 656 farmall gas, but at 65 hp it's workin pretty hard and eating a lot of gas. 4 gals per hour is kind of hard on the pocketbook. of course did not get to the first crop until august when the machine was purchased and there was never a dry day all summer, so it may fare better when the hay is young and the ground isn't soaked. the other tractors are ford 5000 diesel (65-70hp)which is too low a profile or a 1256 IH (120+hp)....there's a huge gap, and the big tractor sometimes is too physically big for the job we are doing, it will tear up the driveway pretty good even when it's dry, and using it in a hayfield can be even worse on the terrain--wet ground you may not go more than 20 feet.
so we're looking for something in between.

the 6080 & 6690 would be in this hp. range,The D series made in 60s&70s were heaver than Ford with same hp.I haven't used the tractors above but the people that I have talked to that own them speek well of them. I don't know the weight of these tractors. hope this helps Gordon-(TN)

Karl. I have owned several A C tractors and I think you would be pleased with a 6080 as it has 80 hp and handles very nicely,On the old tractors ,a D19 is ok not as much clearance as 6080 but powerful, 185 diesel would also handle your disc mowerand are easy to drive. Hope this helps Buford
