Hay Ride Tractor - COM or Tripl-Range?

Hello! I"m trying to decide which would be a better option for pulling a hay ride wagon - a Case-o-matic like a 400B, or a Tripl-Range like a 430, assuming things like the brakes and steering are equal?

The tractor needs to make smooth stops and starts, as we"ll be putting non-farm people on the wagon to give them rides.

Any advice is appreciated!

This doesn't speak to your question, but both of those tractors are too small to do the job safely. I'd want at least a 6,000 lb tractor. Horsepower, weight, brakes, overall stability, etc.

agree I would use the COM also but remember in COM the tractor will free wheel when going downhill always keep them in direct drive, also do not have more weight behind you than your pulling teactor can handel, we had a church group use a "D" to pull a wagon full of people here and it jack knifed on a hill and they were very lucky no one got hurt it was real close cnt

As posted awhile back by JDSeller, The liability laws in Iowa were upended by our liberal State not so Supreme court. At this point in time I will never let a non family member do anything around my mini farm, especially a hay ride. I hate what the lawyers have done to our state. No more farm 4-H or class tours. Probably no more seed corn inspection plots. As long as you pull the hayrack with a CASE you'll be good. gobble

The COM would be a very smoooooooth, and easy on the passengers.
