Greetings to all from Clark County Kentucky, U.S. of A. I found and joined this forum today in search of some information and hopefully some help. I'm hoping to communicate with someone who might be able to help me understand some of the gearing differences between tractors produced for the North American market and those available in Europe. I'm thinking about Fords, 100 - 150 HP, probably 80's or 90's models, but certainly interested in facts about others as well. To make a long story shorter, I have a friend who insists he needs a 50KPH tractor of that size but there doesn't seem to be much available here unless you look at 190+ HP with a $100,000 and up price tag. Perhaps I'm wrong but I believe tractors have been available for some time on the European market with higher road speeds than those sold here. If someone can confirm or deny this I would most certainly appreciate it. Thanks to all who took the time to read this.
