Though small by grain belt standards, to most tractor owners, a 100 HP job is very large. I think it's fair to say that.

I am somewhat skeptical of the claim that "most" farm tractors are 100 or more HP. I don't see that around here. My grandfather ended up buying one about that size for 300 acres, and it was considered somewhat freakish for his area.

If you don't like the L3710, wait a while. Kubota is expanding into bigger machines. They're up to 168 so far. On this farm, that would be a monster. I'd have to buy new gates.
