What is the HP of a 2000 3 cylinder diesel.

Having trouble finding a good answer for the 3 cylinder.

Also what's the difference in torque between the 3 cylinder gas and the 3 cylinder diesel?

I've always gone by pto hp and those were around 32 hp... where a 3000 was around 38 pto hp.. give or take... However....A 2000 with an 8 speed will do a lot more than a 3000 with a 4 speed.(if they exist) The 8 speed really make it a nice tractor as it can slow down the ground speed more and give it a chance to work.

He can run a 6 ft cutter in average grass without issues, if he gets into heavy stuff that pulls the tractor down he can simply move over and not take a full cut.

Still makes me wonder.

I've cut the same field he'll be cutting using my 640 with a 5' cutter without incident.

My thinking is/was that because it's a diesel that the added torque would make using a 6' on his would be OK, and the added with would put the cutter at the width of his rear wheels.

3000 4 cylinder??
2000 3 cylinder uses a 158 ci engine, gas or diesel

4.2 bore, 3.8 stroke

36 gross hp but only 31 pto hp

A 5 ft cutter would be better for this tractor.

3000 3 cylinder used the same 158 gas engine with larger carb jet and increased max governor speed for 45 gross hp and 38 pto hp

The diesel engine size was increased to 175 ci

4.2 bore, 4.2 stroke

Diesel engine made 47 gross hp and 40 pto hp

2000 and 3000 gas are basically the same tractor with larger carb jetting and more rpm in the 3000 for increased power.

Diesel models had different sized engines.

Both the diesel and gasoline version of any of the Ford 3 cylinder engines of a particular displacement have the same bore and stroke (and displacement). The differences that cause the increased compression ratios for the diesels are the size of the combustion chamber created by the profiles of the inside of the head and the tops of the pistons.

Me too. I have the 3000 4 cyl diesel and run a 6' hogger behind it without a problem. I'm guessing here: Diesels use high compression ratios to get air hot and in doing so, have a long stroke to make the high ratio. Long strokers have a low torque peak and as such when you load them the rpms may drop but the torque increases and torque does the work, rpms are just how fast.....HP = [torque (in ft-lbs) x rpms]/5252.

36 HP is more like my 3000's capability.

However, in reading sales brochures on my 3910 and 3930 brochures, Ford flaunts their "square/over square" 3 cylinders running at low rpms for low piston speed thus reducing wear. So you see numbers like 4.2x4.2 and 4.4x4.2 and 4.4 x 4.4.....but a 4" stroke on a 30ish hp engine ain't all that short.

Torque is not horsepower. A diesel generally does have more usable torque down in the normal PTO rpm range than a gasoline tractor of the same hp rating, so it will be able to power through the heavy brush better than a gasoline tractor withe same PTO hp rating.

36 HP is what I kept finding, somehow thought it should be more than that.

Reason I ask is going back to some previous posts about rotary cutters. Neighbor with the 2000 is looking for a cutter. I told him 6' would be OK since he'll cutting a 2' tall oat field after it plays out. Then in the spring it's a 2'-3' tall native grass mix.

I was thinking because it's a diesel it should have more torque than my 640. I've mowed it before using my 5' cutter without any problems using 2nd gear and then 3rd where it was lighter.

That seems high... and I'd say take anything on tractordata with a grain of salt. Without looking it up, I'd say 31-
32 at the PTO. (useable h.p.)

I agree the 36 hp is too high.
About 31 or 32 depending on which transmission it has.
For a more accurate number I always go to the test page.
For even more info click and download the pdf files. Those are direct copies of the original tests.
