Re: hp to pull 5310 16 row striptill

I think I would be worried more about traction than I would about horsepower. Seems like even though we have good new tire selections..that the big front wheel assist tractors have to have ideal conditions to maximize their potential. A well ballasted 4x4 might be the way to go at that point. I guess it would be determined by the conditions you're working in...are your fields hilly? Do you sometimes run when the conditions are a bit smeary on top? I'd think about those things to make my determination.

most of our ground is flat to gentle roll loam soils 4x4 would work but not for planting and really didn't want two row crop tractors so I thought a  bigger mfd might work
