Sat and lurked for sometime on the pulling power and what is the best tractor topics.
I have never heard so much bull put on the rubber boots boys.
I have a 4020 JD (around 94 HP) a friend has a 1486 IH (around 145) and guess which one pulled a root plow better by looking at the HP 1486 should win hands down but this was not the case for a number of reasons 4020 is ballasted properly tire pressure was around 12 psi the 1486 had no weights and the fellow was running 24 psi tire pressure. This is just an example of some things affecting pulling power and eco. HP. in this case is not important both tractors had enough the 4020 just got it to the ground and the 1486 could not.
These are both old tractors and not what is used to farm today but it does make a point.
