We have a Johnson tile plow. Our larger 4wd tractors are Versatiles. 9882, 946, 895. We pull the plow with the 895. With the Cummins engine, you can start off slow. We have some mechanical problems (clutch etc.) due the load, so we have kept using the older tractor so our newer tractors would be ready for field work. We are planning to purchase a John Deere, maybe a 9520 or 9430. The question is, "is there a tractor that is best for this application?". I have heard CV transmissions work well, but they are only available on MFWD I think. I saw another post where a guy was very pleased with his JD9420.
