Couple of implement questions

Can a 716H with ag tires and wheel weights pull two 10" plows, or just one? Are there any two stage snowblowers for the 716H? TIA, Jeremy[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]

I DONT THINK IT WILL PULL IT .A FARM TRACTOR HAS TO HAVE AT LEAST 16 TO 20 HP TO PULL ONE PLOW SO I DONT THINK YOU HAVE ENOUGH HORSE TO PULL IT.AGCO918

If you have good bottomland no rocks to speak of, sure,They didn't offer a 2 stage for that trac BUT the good news is you don't need it, providing the single stage is run properly. Where I live the snow's as heavy sometimes as concrete,my 46" [I added 4"] moves it no problem!Look at pic in gallery titled "3116H?'

As a rule for farm plows, you need around 20HP for a 16'' plow. I don't think it would pull it unless you have very light soil or a LOT of weight and low gears. How would you hook them both on? Jordan

The Simplicity single stage blower is awsome, I currently have three of them. I have never used a two-stage, but I have talked to people who have used both a Simplicity single stage and a two stage. The consesus is that the two stage might throw snow 2 or 3 feet further out, but the cost in power consumption is not worth it, that the single stage Simplicity will actually move more snow! This statement only applies to Simplicity single stages, not other brands. Ask dutch, he found this out through personal experience. My neighbor up the road has a John Deere GTO or GTR or something, with a single stage blower. Last year I stopped on the road and watched him blow snow. I believe I could shovel it faster than he was moving it(well maybe 20 years ago I could have). I was going to take my Agco-Allis over there and show him what a REAL tractor would do, but I was afaid it would make him cry!

I was thinking about making a custom mount for two of the 10" Brinely plows. The ground around here is top quality stuff. Usually one rototilling and it's ready for seed. Really amazing. Where the current garden is, it had grown wild for years, gave it a quick mow, tilled by hand, and it was ready for seed. I'd like to have a snow blower because they look like fun, but unfortunately we haven't had a big snow in a number of years. Usually just a couple of inches fall a a time. The 716H I have is a hydro (hence the H :-) and I don't currently have bar type rear tires, but am working on that.[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]
