power isnt always the problem what your tyres like is it going to be a average year or wet the tyres could be your main problem 300hp will do a better job of it than a 375 with poor tyres just rember have the tractor 25 percent bigger than you need we learned that last year the most last year a 450 could pull with 710s full weighted struggled with 350 cart and 40ft this tractor normaly pulls 60ft with 800 bushel tank on a average year so atlest have good rubber

So, if I got this right, if your going to f**k around in the wet spot, make sure your rubber is good.

i can't remember what kind of tires i got on my 9250 or if theres even fluid in them i bought it 2-3 yrs ago and haven't put many hours on it

i'm just hopin i would have the power to pull this machine for a year or 2 then maybe sell both of our 4wd and buy 1 big 4wd since i don't summerfallow any more i have no use for 2 of them


the one guy that owns the 48 with spoons and 350 cart told me he pulled it with a 310hp john deere

Also depends on type of soil and hills. We pull 40 ft Bourgault 5710 and 450 tank with 435 HP and I wouldnt want any less. Running 3/4" openers last year and the 2 previous years had 3.5" but 350 bushel tank.

i take it you farm in dry land farming last year here it was wet in every direction you turn so dont tell me what i have experinced and wanting to pass on to others all im saying better to have a smaller drill and keep going than pushing your tractor to the limit and be stuck all the time or powering out
