- 17' New Holland Workmaster 60 & 02' Kubota L3000F
correct I was just stating that regardless if its a 50/60/70 since you cant purchase them other than leftover stock or used and the OP isn't sure he is going used and maybe new I was stating the ratings - for the 50/60/70 is 45/51/62 so know what you are getting was my point I know there are posts on here that people buy something and then realize when they get home they have something else ;-) and then don't have enough power !!!!
a 15hp deficit is huge in a presuming 75 hp tractor and only having 60 or a 55 only having 40 it makes a ton of difference when you to go hooking implements on things.
read a post on here yesterday guy bought a tractor and is reeling from not having enough power - spending 25K in his case and being sick when you cant get your job done would be awful - so just trying to help and of course buyer beware
I get where you're coming from. It's one of those things just like trucks with towing, look at the specs before buying. We upgraded to a dually two years ago. Ram advertised 31,000lbs towing in a 3500 dually. Well, there are 6 variations of 3500 with the Cummins alone. Three with the 68rfe & three with the Aisin transmission with different gear ratios. Only one has that max tow capacity, and you would be amazed how many dealers sale them advertising this when the lowest rated of the six is only 16,000 lbs max towing. That's a pretty dang big gap. Anyhow, way off subject but just saying it's a widespread problem that even if all the info wasn't obvious the salesman should be knowledgeable enough to make buyers aware.
On the WM tractors, it looks like they are keeping the 50,60,70 also, not discontinuing it. So there will be 6 utility WM models to choose from. Case actually says in their literature that there will be 6 Farmall A series tractors (same as the Workmaster).
