I see a lot of C's and H's and we would like to get ahold of one or the other but it there much difference beyween them and an A and M? My A had a snow plow on the front run off a seperate hyd pump and I know I can still get a hold of a plow and I have part of the cults. My M has a 3 point so if I ever need to do any bush hogging and such it will work for me, would buying a C or H just be for novelty or could they be used in a practical manner better than the two I already have? Benefits????

Hs and Cs are wonderful cultivating tractors, and thats about all we ever used them for, or pulling a cultipacker. They are just plain too slow, for me anyways, to do any serious plowing etc. (Im comparing this to my Ms) The one advantage of the C over the A is the hydraulics.

The Cs and As used the same engine I believe. Rear tires would be more expensive as you went to bigger tractors.

Tire prices ae insane! I was so lucky to find some 11.2x24's for our A last year, 6 plys in great shape for 75 bucks. The M had good tires on it front an back. Shame when tire prices can be half as much as the tractor price or MORE :shock: :roll:

i saw a 49h about 13ys ago that I wanted.. had a woods belly mower on it.. they wanted 2650 for it.. for some stupid reason I passed.. decided I wanted it.. came back days later and they let it go for 1800$ :(

wanted one since then.,

found a 44h in great condition a while back.. needed some leaks chased.. electrical work. a lil paiting and wheel weights.. etc..

tires are bad but hold air..

We use a C to rake hay with, and an H to cut the hay. I keep a Super C on my place for garden work, and tending to some odd pulling chores that are just too much for my truck. The C's have a tighter turning radius than the H's or M's I've known and used, and with just a little weight added the C would do about 85% of what an M can do, just slower. I can't say how they compare to the A's.

I am going to have to purchase some tires for some of mine also; am not liking the prices i am finding on the rears. Decent used ones are very hard to find out here. Guess i will just halfta grin n bearit and buy some new oes.

I have a C and it feels kind of under powered. I have two super C's and they feel just as powerful as my H if not more. I'll sell you a Super C :)

due to their lack of weight.. even if a souped up s-c did have more hp than a tired H.. the h would likely still drag more....

The C and H issue will still be up for debate and since I picked up a Ford this weekend they will be out of my financial reach. One day I will have one or the other ;)
