    If you go by the US Ag flash reports from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers the biggest numbers sold are under 40 hp.

    Ok, so now it's down to tractors that use 48", 54", 60", 66" and 72" loaders and implements. Now if we can narrow that down to maybe 2 or 3 of these sizes.

    With bigger farms and tree nursery/farms around here the HP numbers are scewed a bit. But most of the big farms have a "smaller" tractors to run loading/unloading augers, drainage pumps, mowing, fencing and feeding chores, loader work in barns 50HP on down gets a good part of that. On the tree farms and nursery acreage due to fitting down narrow rows of trees and seedlings 30HP on down is popular.

    I live in the heart of the corn and soybean country, and I know alot of 200+hp machines are being sold, but they tend to last a long time and are kept going for a long time, usually many thousands of hours. I would bet that almost every farm around here of any size has at least 1 machine that is 200 or more hp and sometimes 2. On the other hand, they also often have a machine that is 40-150 hp, so they are very common. I think very few farms around here use SCUT or CUT size units, thats more of the home owners, small acreage, hobby farmer kind of thing.

    LOL, I suppose you can literally say that I just 'bought the farm'. Almost figuratively and literally. With my 80 hp tractor I found an old cistern I didn't know existed. I believe I'm going to have to get me another tractor because my other "tractors" are actually dedicated mowing machines. Now that I bought my wife's grandparent's old farm, I probably need an additional smaller tractor for some of the tight areas there. I don't recall the hp it had, but the JD 4600 tractor I had several years ago seemed to be a good size for most chores. Sure, it won't do what my 80 hp (PTO) tractor will, but it definitely doesn't weigh as much either.
    1982 18" Murray push mower (B&S industrial 8 hp engine!) custom deck, new blade - became unbalanced when one side old blade broke off!
    HF moving dolly - high torque! Dogbone multi-wrench too..wait, it split on first use.
    My trash man is the greatest. No matter how bad the economy gets and how bad stocks drop or how bad home values drop, his business is always picking up.

    Seems like it. Maybe just confused? Do I need to rephrase the question?

    Yes, some research.
