I say mobility. Used to do all our business in small local town seven miles away, now it's no problem to drive the twenty miles to the larger town where the small towns can't compete. Farmers farming ground twenty miles around them, it's no big deal to drive this new equipment that far. Think how long it would take to do that with a 2 cylinder or M, even a 4020 compared to an 8000 series. And harvest, the trips with a wagon or small straight truck vs all the semi's today.
