If you are going to haul with a 1/2 ton, stick with the H. The goose neck hitch will handle better, but it won't do a thing for the power situation. In fact you need more power with the goose neck because the trailers are typically heavier. If you try to haul an M with a 1/2 ton, for any distance, you will be looking for a heavier truck before long.

Why not go for a Farmall C or Super C. It will fit on the bumper hitch trailer and is lighter than the H or M. And your truck will be much happier hauling it. If you have any hills at all, your 1/2 ton is going to have problem with an M. I have a 99 chevy 3/4 ton with the 6 liter engine. An M on a goose neck trailer is all it wants. It is a manual transmission and will handle most interstate grades in 4th gear, but will pull down to 60 mph or so. Any grades that are marked as steep grades on the interstate require 3rd gear.

As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison.
