:+1: And unlike many other makes, a Case/ Ingersoll (w/holding valve or exp operator) will also be able to stop/slow a heavy trailer. There are plenty of old line tractors that will pull a load that they are completely unable to control downhill. JMOPhaon said:20 years ago, the 155 you see in my profile pic was used to pull full wagon loads of nearly 150 bales of alfalfa out of the field up a rather steep grade. That's with a 10hp motor. As long as I could keep solid traction, I could do it at about 25% throttle.
As was stated above, I think you'll find the hydraulic drive in these tractors more than sufficient for most any pulling or pushing you would feel safe doing in a tractor of that weight.
Presumably, the tires you ordered are AG tires with an R1 tread. I would suggest that you find a local RimGuard dealer and have those tires loaded with beet juice. You will not be sorry you did. The tractor will feel and perform much better.[email protected] said:Great. I just ordered some tires for it so i could get more traction. I appreciate your posts. :thumbsup:
