    1635 handles a 12'6" Kongskilde cultivator quite well.

    Here's our blue crew....the left one is a 1998 New Holland 1630 with 7308 loader and 757 backhoe. The tractor on the right is a 2001 New Holland TC33D with a 72CB front power angle blade and also pulls double duty for field mowing with a New Holland 914A 72" mid mount mower.

    The 1630 (9x3 gearshift) has 29 hp and the TC33D (hydrostatic) has 33 hp. Both tractors have supersteer, four wheel drive, plenty of power for their size and are fairly fuel efficient.

    What engines in that thing? 3 cyl briggs vangard/dihatsu like our simplicity legacy xl? looks very similar, suprisingly, these little tractors come in very handy for everything.

    Most likely, its the same machine as the simplicity and Snapper GT 600. Briggs owns them all so its just different colors and decals.

    I was under the impression that compact tractors fall below 25 hp?
    Their lift capacity rarely exceeds 900 lbs, maybe 1000?

    Just because it's not a full blown big bad tractor doesn't make it a compact.
    I can probably let that one 26hp'er slide...

    The tractor is built by Iseki for MF. it has an Iseki diesel in it, small 3 cylinder. NO Affiliation with Briggs whatsoever.
    GC series, 1100,1200,1400,1500,1600 are all Iseki built.
