Latest comment: With tractors, yes. A 40hp 2-tonner will outpull a 80hp 1 tonner without any problem. Regarding your "fossil" logic.. Ever heard of wood?

Oh FFS. The drawbar isn't horizontal, so the JD is already at a disadvantage, but that's all a minor point. It's all to do with weight with tractors, and an old steam engine wins.
