 How important is weight

Jim, weight is an important consideration since most of the compact tractors have plenty of power to spin the wheels, the weight can greatly affect the amount of traction you can get. The problem is that you cannot necessarily depend on the "specs" to determine the weight difference. You have to know whether the listed weight includes tires, wheels, fuel, oils, and coolant or not. It seems that different manufacturers use different methods of determining weight, and I've not found any definitive information. Some day I hope to find a convenient time and place to weigh my tractor to see what it actually weighs. In either case, either tractor you are considering would probably be a good choice; you just about can't go wrong.

 How important is weight

Weight is the name of the game....that's why all tractor maufaterers sell weight kits to add beneficial weight to the front as well as the rear tires of all tractors....and those weights can get pretty expensive....think torque & weight not HP...deseal engines are designed to pull great loads effectively and efficiently but they produce large torque bands far supperior to gas engines...we always look at HP because we are so familiar with the autos we have grown to love....that's not the deal with the new geneation of deisel tractors
