I know a guy bought a brand new 620 and had to hook his 535 back up to pull the drill till he got a steinbauer for the 620. I dream of a quad with a QSK in it. Would be ultimate tractor. Too bad no more Cummins.
You havenít owned enough newer Cummins yet then. Iveco is way way better motor and you can hardly here the tractors running. When I say better I mean less noise, less fuel, less Def.
Iveco are a fine motor and take a look how heavy block is in bigger tractors and donít forget Iveco engines are used in trucks in Europe.

Just get a Iveco tuned and you will have more power then the tractor can ever put to the ground at.

A tuning customer of mine built a bar that ran in front of his front tracks to help flatten stubble to save tracks.

4 track systems require more HP than 2 track tractors. If anyone needs a few more ponies or a more reliable tractor I know lots of good guys that can help you out.
