  • PTO HORSEPOWER
  • I'm saddled with filling out a USDA survey. Question is regarding the PTO horsepower of my 2N and my 860.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks,

    Jack

  • Curious -what USDA survey would that be? Why are they asking questions about 70-plus year old tractors? All that data has been and was documented back then. You can find the info in our MANUALS forum under TRACTORS...here's the 800 Series -

    Actually they do these surveys about every seven years. If you are a farm no matter how big or small and no matter what type beef,crop etc. It is a comprehensive survey. According to reports there are a large amount of smaller farms. The big guys haven't kicked us out yet

  • Thanks Tim.

    It's the "2017 Census of Agriculture"

    How I get so lucky, I have no idea. Seems they would want the larger operations which are actually contributing to the food supply.

    Phone 888-424-7828 and listed to the legal requirements to cooperate plus other items.

  • Agreed, Jack. There are no more American 40-80 acre farms anymore. They need to contact Con-Ag...the ironic thing is they could put an end to world hunger if only there were more small family farms like there was back then...but then that's the Catch 22 -governments can't make any money.

  • You're right Tim. I was involved in a project in 2010 to photograph all of the dairy barns in Portage Co., WI where my grandparents farm was located. At that time a mere 10% of them were being used as dairy barns. However, we have more and more of the CAFO's (concentrated animal feeding operations) and are dealing with the problems that causes, such as wells polluted with animal feces and who knows what kind of medicines they feed these poor beasts! As a bonus, we're faced with a surplus of cheap milk, over-production of cheese (cheese-heads indeed) to a point where the 'gummint' has to buy it. To add insult to injury, the the little farm towns are in a state of perpetual decline with not enough residents to hold a 4th of July parade and they have to take turns being the town drunk...

  • American farms have been in the decline since the 60's, maybe before. Remember when the gubment would pay farmers NOT to grow stuff? Now, with all the states legalizing marijuana, think of all the revenue Uncle Sam could generate by licensing farmers to grow it for commercial use? Just saying...

  • Thanks Steve,

    They give a specific number for the 2N but not for the 860. I will work with the Belt HP on the 860 for this survey.

  • Check out the university of Nebraska 1940 field test. Has the belt HP listed as 23.5 and less back then they called it pulley HP.its in the manuals on this sight. Don't know if that will help but it's a start. Tim Daley may know more.

  • Thanks Mike,

    Actually I had looked at that but was not aware of the change in terminology.

    I've just looked at the Specifications for hundred series and find the 860 should be 46.89 Belt HP.

    Those are the numbers I will use.
