Hp required for 30/40 tonne Balfor/Posch splitters

Recommended Posts

Ive got a Balfor 40t horizontal and with the little zetor (75hp) it hasn't got enough poke to kick into low gear and stalls the tractor on really knotty stuff.

put the 8210 on it and it runs grand on just above tick over .

No exact figures but our mf35x (probably around 40hp now) won't run our 40ton ryetec properly. I only tried it for half an hour and never again. 


It runs easily on our 120deutz though so I would think less would be fine.


Weirdly the most fuel efficient is our deutz 6215 on tickover at 1000economy but that's expensive in other ways.
