Re: Horsepower

I know most guys in my area pull a 15ft no-till drill with around 130-150HP. To give you an idea.

I drilled with that drill on a JD 4430 a few times. That weight does kinda tend to push him some on terraces when fully loaded.

A guy I helped out this spring was pulling a new 40' JD 1990 drill- he had a 8320 on it- Had all it wanted in the hills- he did pull it on tilled ground for peas on the 7.5" rows- he said it did alright.

I pull a 42.5 ft. 1990 CCS, 7.5" spacing, with either an 8420 or an 8430 both with front and rear duals. Both tractors pull it very easily.

Re: Horsepower

No sweat. With that you could pull a 12 row planter easily, and I'm sure it could handle a 40' box drill.

I pulled a 12R30 Buffalo planter with a 4650 for a lot of years. It had a shoe opener instead of a double disc so it pulled harder than the usual Deere. Even then it wasn't much of a load on the tractor. I pulled in 9th at 1680rpm, which was around 4.8mph.
