    Default mahindra 3016 versus 40hp

    I am presently researching tractors and am pretty confident in buying the 3016. However the dealer was trying to suggest buying a 40 hp in case I might need the higher pto hp later. I have a 24 acre lot where I will be doing some tree clearing and landscaping. I would appreciate some advice on how large a tractor I might need. Thank you.

    Welcome to the site I would choose the 40 HP .. Best I recall ,It's the same (physical) size tractor with more HP. With a 30 HP tractor You will have roughly 25 PTO HP. Next tractor I buy will be at least 45 HP

    A 30hp Mahindra will do the work of a 50hp trator in any other brand

    While more horsepower is always welcome and I tend to agree with your dealer about jumping up in horsepower. But, another thought on how you add that extra horsepower. Consider a second, older and larger tractor in the future if you need horsepower. I can assure you a second tractor no matter the size will prove handy.

    Thank you for your responses. I don't believe any 30 hp tractor can beat a 50 hp tractor.

    Mahindras use the 2.5 ft per HP rule
