I rember seeing. Video of a county pulling a big in its day Shawnee trailer up a quarry road roaring away hell of a nice note.
Wish we had pictures of the things we had when I was a kid , there was a few 800 series been and gone along with most models of county & tw tractors they seemed massive when your a kid but small now in comparison
Yes the biggest county made was a 1884 was a massive machine (188 hp) but against modern tractors very underpowered, a pal of mine has a fendt 936 as a play thing :eek: (360 hp) uses it to tow his traction engine

Old horses seem stronger tho somehow, we used to plough 4 Furrows with 80/90 horse tractors now it's 150/180.
I only wish we had kept our 1164! I still remember the day it left on the lowloader

I think some of it is the torque is so high up the rev range now
Claas seem the worse for this they have absolutely no bottom end power
They just want to stall constantly especially if you arnt quick enough onto the throttle when using a loader
Also they are 4 cylinder 160hp

Yep I think that's the key to it, bit like ford 7710 and 7810 similar hp but the 6 cylinder pulled a hell of a lot harder!
