    What do you guys think of the new 8N? There is a post in New Holland forum with pics. It looks cool.

    It's everything the 8n wasn't..

    diesel, 2x hp, 4wd, and hst tranny... only thing it shares is a similar paint job.

    Transmission is CVT, not HST, though your point is still very valid.

    The tranny info I had came from a successful farming magazine article.

    I see the editor is on top of the game!
