I agree with ultradog. I had a 2000 gas 8 speed with live pto. It had much more pulling power and stability than my 8n. The manual steering was hard to steer and this one did not have differential lock. The gas engine could be a little hard to start sometimes. I would try to get a 2000 or 3000 or 2600 or 3600 diesel with 8 speed, live pto, and power steering.
