cummins or iveco.

guys who have had a tj/stx 480. vs a t9050/stx485. with a qsx15 vs a cursor 13 iveco.. what you rather own a cummins or an iveco with similar horsepower. To me i would go for a cummins because i am a cummins fan and there is no replacement for displacement.

We've had both engines and they are both great. If your a cummins fan stick with it. We run ivecos now and they are a beast of an engine don't think you'll make bad choice either way.

I'm a cummins fan too but I don't know if I'd own a ISX. The EGR in the highway tractors seems quite problematic. If you remove it they are a lot better engine. Maybe I'm just scared of the unknown. Check out Nebraska tractor tests, maybe one has better fuel consumption than the other.

We have had both, both work great but the cursor is a lot quieter and is better on fuel.

No replacement for displacement, Scott.

It would be a QSX in the tj tractors and I don't think they have an egr on them.

I would agree with this, the fuel savings will add up over time.

I had a cummins with no mechanical problems, but it sure liked to use fuel. Fuel usage and the fact that that CIH was responsible for whole tractor with the iveco motor if something went wrong.

Yes, that's why CNH got away from Cummins, had to be a certified mechanic thru Cummins, then the peeing contest, between both companys, it makes sense to keep in house, Scott.

Never ran one with the iveco in it, but we have the QSX in our STX450 Quad and I absolutely love it.

The ISX in our W900 is another story, maybe I'll like it after we turned the horsepower up from 400 to 450.
