You make it sound as if there is a real world difference between 8.8gpm and 9.1gpm. so much so that it should be a key factor in picking a tractor brand.You make that sound so easy... just "simply" get a PTO pump...
First off, have you priced one? They aren't cheep! Secondly, what about everything you need to use it?? That's a whole other expense like tank, hoses, valves ect....plus everything else that goes with it to make it work.
There's nothing much simple about it at all...
If you need more flow.....get s bigger tractor....get a pto driven implement....or get a pto pump.
With so little difference in GPM among similar sized machines.....it's not even on my radar when comparing tractors.
And if you need 20gpm.....a 50hp tractor with a 20gpm PTO pump is alot cheaper than a 100hp tractor
