That’s the truth. The 25’ field cultivator with the 27’ rotary hoe I was running in 10th gear @ 6.x mph no problem.

It is a slippery slope but I don’t think we will be falling down it. We don’t really have the large open fields to justify going much wider.

i have pulled a 35 foot field cultivator with mine. no problem. they are a pretty "hot" little tractor and pull more than one thinks they should. the ones with wide tracks and the right amount of weight really pull.
