    In this modern age would the 3 pt. hitches offered for farm jeeps be considered series 0, 1, 2 or something heftier?

    It's sort of complicated because it weighs less than a 30hp tractor and the 4k rpm puts it at 75 hp but the bar spacing is 1 and you only have the gusto for 5' brush hog or 6' blade. But the 4wd helps the drawbar pull. I don't know why the stationary pto hp is soo low but there isn't much different between a pto on a feed elevator and a d20 going down the interstate.

    You won't ever lift like a class 2 or 3 without the D70 axle and springs. Do consider a front weight.

    Thanks folks. I'm considering options for cleaning up some run-away grass & I was thinking a bush hog or sickle bar to do it. This will probably go nowhere as I'd have to work up some sort of custom gear reverser box for the hog as I don't want to pay $$$ for the gearbox & have to remove my pintle hook to mount one.
