I have had a 2N for almost 20 years. 20 years before that I had a 8N. When I decided I really needed a little more than the 2N my brother talked me into looking at the 100 series.
Ended up with a 860. This one has been beat up and abused but has given me great service now for over 14 years. The two stage clutch was not comfortable for me at first but I solved that by raising the seat 4 inches.
The live PTO is worth it's weight in gold in my opinion. However if you're looking for a road tractor, the 2N with Sherman overdrive is much faster.
