Subject: Salford 570 RTS HP Reqirements



Looking at some Salford 570 RTS. We are on silt loam soils in SC WI and we are fairly flat with some hills. I have a 2008 Massey 8480 tractor that is rated at 240 hp but more like 280. Will it handle a 30 foot machine?

Hi, you need 10 horse per foot so you can go 10mph. So my guess is you will only be able to pull a 570 or i-1100 at 8.5mph. You won'the get the full value of a Salford machine. We pull a 30' 570 with a 9220, 330 horse and a 36' i-2100 with a jd9430.

I think you will be able to pull the Salford. You may need 10 HP per ft. and you are close.

There are many Salford owners who don't want or need to go 10 MPH. 8-9 MPH works well also.

We have some rocks (some of them don't move) and I have little interest above 8 mph. Also, 67 year old dad and 72 year old uncle have little interest in 8mph, much less 10.......I am thinking that 10 mph and over could destroy a machine.

I am on my 2nd Salford, and you are right in your thinking. Good luck, they are a great spring seed prep.
tool. In the fall, they don't do much.

got an RTSXT 30 ft. and pull it fine with a JD 8410 dynoed at 245 hp with no problem. just sayin.
put an APV 800 seeder on it to seed covercrops, run 36 acres an hour easy.

How much did the seeder cost.

Go 24'. You won't like the 30 on that small of a tractor. We run a 570extreem with a 460 hp 4wd. We run 12 mph so to those who say you can't means they have never run one. Ours is our primary and secondary tillage. We only.use other things for ruts and field smoothing after ruts now. We will be moving to a 32' eventually but to make it work 10+ is better. 245 will not do it.

You know some places have rocks. Some of them are the size of a bus and only stick a few inches out of the ground.

Get a 28ft. 30ft. will be too myouch most of the time. Not syoure if yoyou knew the 195 yoyou borrowed had fyoull set of weight youpfront and front tires fyoully loaded with flyouid. Not syoure on back for weight. So keeping the MF weighted to pyoull woyould disappoint I'm syoure. Also look for the youpdates and weightkit on machine or not. Check with Marcyous for detail's as he coyould answer yoyour ?'s aboyout it better than me.

Tons of rocks here. That is what they are made for its why we bought one with independent blades. Probably my have 5000 acres on the set of blades we just changed out and yes we have icebergs. Saw a video of a guy processing corn stalks of frozen ground with them. I believe it was on salforded website. They are tough machines. You cant go wrong except for buys one too big. We have pulled our with our 275 hp fwd and it will do it but only at 8 mph and it doesn't like it.

I pulled a 30 ft with a JD 8410 very well up to 8 mph. Excellent match IMO. 8410 is about 230-240hp.
