Actually, I think they're both quite handsome. I've always liked the looks of an A, but admittedly, the numbered series looks pretty good too.

The 60 is superior to the late A . Even without options the 60 made more power unless fuel with the duplex carb engine .
The 60 has live hydraulics .Only the late AR had live hydraulics
The 60 could be optioned with live PTO instead of the PTO. miserable transmission driven PTO.
The 60 could be optioned with power steering.
Plus the 60 is a much better looking tractor .

Not sure if this applies. My '44 A's rear wheel position has much more range than our 730's has. I can go from row crop width to wide by moving only the wheels on the axil, while we have to take the fenders off the 730 for row position, move its wheels on the rims and so on to get that much difference. It's a pain in the neck, so we end up never using it in rows but leave it wide for hay making. I don't know if all the number series are like that or not.

Like has been said, the A will be lighter. For hay making and a lot of other work (seeding, spreading fertilizer, etc) light is better. I want mine as light as possible so I don't rut up my hayfields in first cutting. I can float right over wet areas with my mower on the A where the 4040 and the discbine would rut it up.

Little to no difference in HP. But the model 60 is ALOT heavier machine and depending on what you are doing could actually slow you down do to the weight. Or help you get traction do to the weight. Sure is nice to have live pto and hyd. and even power steering on the 60 if using it though. Or better yet move up to a 620 ! about 10 more HP and way better 3 pt. hitch available.

A tested at 38 HP while 60 tested at 41 HP. I prefer styling of the A. But 60 can have power steering and live PTO.

The 60 should be better with the better built motor in it. The 60 will have more power it seems also better hyd on them.
