Hi all, I have a 43 acre cattle farm with plans to add another 50 acre parcel about 10 min down the road. Both places have a few inclines that make me slightly worried about higher profile tractors. Right now I have a Powerstar 75 cabbed tractor and I have no problems on the hills. I don't do hay, the only uses for my tractor are clearing downed trees, occasional bush hogging with my 10' bush hog and feed/unrolling bales of hay in the winter. I figure I need at least a 50hp pto tractor (very little of my bush hogging is more than clipping). Which IH would be best?
I need a historically reliable setup (I understand how it was taken care of is most important, but want to know what to stay away from)
Something to lift 4x5 round bales three high
pull my 10' bush hog
be heavy enough and wide enough to handle the hills that my powerstar 75 does.
