Exactly. Also, European manufacturers will offer stuff like compressed air and/or hydraulic brakes for trailers, along with ground speed sync'ed PTO also to power trailers, front diff locks, 3pt downforce ability, etc.Probably because farms in Europe tend to be much smaller. When we visited in times past, it was common to see 10 acre farms. I bet youll see those features more and more on small tractors.
As the years go by in the US, so many Americans are fleeing the corruption of cities for lower taxed, simpler, less violent areas and go back to gardening & small time farming...
We do have some big farms as well. Mostly located towards the bottom half of Portugal. The upper half (North) of the country is very hilly, full of mountains and so on. The bottom half (South) is very very flat and nice for farms, so there is where the biggest farms are located.
I do know that they have two big JD 9620R with big scrappers attached to them, all fitted with laser stuff for grading. They mainly use these tractors to level big farms. Also, there are a lot of big Fendts, NH, Masseys, Valtra, JD, running down there.
We have huge tomato farms and when it's harvest time, the roads get packed with big tractors pulling fully loaded truck trailers using 5th wheel dolly's.
