From 1953 onward all the Fords had live hydraulics which is a very big improvement over the N Series.
From 1955 onward live PTO was OPTIONAL which is a big improvement over non-live though not as big as live hydraulics IMO. From 1955 onward power steering was also optional which is a great feature but not as great as live hyds.
From 1953 onward reverse gear was a modest speed which on the 8Ns was Very Fast.
Powerwise, I think of an 8N as a half ton pickup vs a 600 as a 3/4 ton.
A half ton will do a lot of useful work for you but a 3/4 ton will do more, longer, better.
