I helped with spring work with an MX285 for the neighbors. I am not a "Case" man but I was sure impressed with that tractor. I did lots of field work at lower rpm's and a couple of gears higher to maintain the same speed. Can those motors pull! What they need for your application is a pto gear so you could slow the engine down if desired.I have the successor to that line of tractors, an MX-270. The 8.3L Cummins (CDC) pulls a 12 ton Hesston large square baler perfectly. I will be running that tractor & baler in about 4 hours
Its got stupid power and a really nice turbo whistle. We dynoed it earlier this year and it made 270HP at the PTO.

New Holland Genesis tractors had a similar iineup. The 70 series utilized the same Ford/New Holland 7.5L diesel from 170-240HP.
Sometimes in other tractor series, the lower powered models of the lineup will not be intercooled Or may not be turbocharged (NA) along with lower fueling from the pump.
