Manufacturers up the ante on tractor horsepower

High horsepower tractors with added comfort and safety features are coming on the market, promising to pull large implements at higher speeds and go faster on the road for quicker trips between farms


Tractor manufacturers have moved the horsepower curve higher and higher over the last 10 years while adding speed, safety and precision to deliver more productivity in the field and on the road.   

Mitch Kaiser, Case IH marketing manager for Steiger tractors, says he expects to see horsepower to continue to go up and, with it, speed and operator comfort.
