    Re: What Is The 960 PTO Used For.

    Re: bottom plowing

    Our old Case 730 was rated at 67 hp if I recall, and it would pull 4-14's all day. There were also 16 and 18 inch bottoms then as well. So keep the size in mind when you buy also. Happy shopping and...

    Re: BX1500 Up and Down a Slope

    Keep looking Coaster, I got my BX2230 off ebay for less than a dealer site listed a BX1500. Well worth the wait and money. For what you are doing, any size BX would be great. Good luck!

    Re: TODAYS SEAT TIME

    Re: Lugging Engine

    I grew up on a farm, and I remember plowing some alfalfa. Most of the field, things went really well, but along a fenceline the old 930 dropped from WOT 1950 rpm down to about 1200. The cloud of...
