The new JD's seem to be built awfully light also. The farmer that my son buys his TMR from has a fleet of 6430's as chore tractors. Nice to drive and all that, but they don't strike me as much of a match for a 1955, a 2-105, an 1130 or a 1256 if it came down to heavy work.
I'd wager that the repair bill for one of those fancy-pants trannys would be more than any of the above tractors cost new.
