 mf 481

I am currently looking at 471's myself. In my area not many 481's are sold for some reason,several dealers have said that most people who want something bigger than a 471 will go the extra yard and buy a 491 or 492. Something else that several dealers have tod me is that the newer 471s actually dyno out about the same horsepower as the 481,which they tell me is about 71-73 pto horsepower. I do know that the specs list the same tier 11 Perkins engine in both tractors,it is 269 cubic inches I believe, the older tier 1 471s had a 244 cu in engine and the 481 had a 258 cu in engine I believe. It would seem that the 471 is a better bargain since the difference in price is about 1400 and it would seem about all you get extra is bigger tires! Hope this helps. From what I have heard the 471 nad 481 are very simple reliable tractors that have a well proven drivetrain.
