Well, yeah bigger than NEEDED but the reality is that 9Ns,2Ns & 8Ns are 50
years old and were cheap junk when new and haven't improved! (-: The
steering box "dies" and can't be fixed, the hydraulics are coroded back to
oxides, etc., etc. Look for a little 4wd Japanese diesel (ALL little
tractors have been little Japanese diesels for about 20 years including
Ford, Deere, Case, Massey) Kubota is the most popular . . darn things are
indestructable and keep their value, they're ALWAYS worth about what you pay
for them if maintained.
