    Default Should I upgrade?

    I am the very happy owner of a CK20, FEL and BH. It is a great size for the landscaping work I am doing on the tree and rock infested 3 acres we own. However it looks like we are going to be buying a 10 acre place. It is completely open, pond with 2 arces of wetlands and 6-7 acres of very dense fields. I am wondering if mowing the fields may be more stress on a 20hp than would be reasonable. I figure my options are either run in a lower gear, however I don't want to be in the seat all day when there may be 1 or 2 other things I need to get done, or upgrade to more HP's. We don't plan on living there for a few more years but will be going there for weekends, otherwise I would also consider an HP upgrade of the more natural 4 legged kind.

    You can always up the HP with larger injectors and turn the pump up.
    I'll bet you can see an honest & reliable 28~30 hp wiyh your CK20.
