Why too much hp? Allis made a 181hp 2wd tractor. And it was by many farmers a welcome tractor.

Don't get me wrong Johan, but with MFD you pull 25% more .
It is better for the structure and easyer on the operator and tractor..;-)
I wouldn't waste an picture on a tractor if it was junk.
This is a great tractor , :-D

Somewhere on farmphoto is a picture of the strongest 2WD tractor in the world, and it doesn't look weak at all...

I think it was a "honey bee" arround 500HP...

Re: FORD TW 35
In the US market the MFD didn't become the norm until the the 90's. You started seeing some around in the mid and late 80's, but it did seem our market was slower to catch on. This tractor was of that era when transition was taking place.

The early ones built in the 60's and 70's were very rare and had issues with tight turning radius.

Tractors like the one pictured were very common in my area. A high horsepower 2 wheel drive will do alright though in most conditions.

We don't work as wet of ground like the pics I see from Europe which makes front MFD a must. We are real prone to soil compaction if we work wet ground. :-\

A really nice looking tractor that Ford. A contractor ´round here still uses 1 or 2 Ford 8830 for silage packing.
With MFWD of course:-P:-D
