This is a Case 931 Comfort King. Bought it yesterday off a retiring farmer. It's a 90 HP tractor, 80 at the PTO, and 70 at the drawbar. Should do the trick for my haying needs for many years to come.

It doesn't look big enough to be cranking out those HP ratings! My 40HP (modern) is way bulkier.

That's way beyond the bog standard Cat 1 implements, is it Cat 3?

@vandys cat 2. it does look small in pictures, it has s short wheelbase which I suspect helps the small appearance. I'm 5' 11" and it's taller than me. also, new tractors can do a lot more than less HP I've found, partially because of engineering and such and partially because new implements require less HP.

a modern round baler can be run on a 40HP tractor. But the older ones need at least 65 to get even close to a decent pressure for baling.

Back in the day, horsepower wasn't measured using a dynamometer...

36hp example below:

In my day we metricized it, slapped a cool German name on it, and called it Pferdestärke.
