Beyound marketing engine hp #s mean nothing. Its not even on the Nebraska test. The 2 numbers that have always been used are pto and drawbar. I realize most compacts and utilities didn't get the test but the whole reason for the Nebraska test was so mfgs couldn't make bogus claims. For sh*ts and giggles I looked up my 5400 vs the m5040. The specs on the M5040 says PTO 45 (claimed) and on the JD 5400 it says 60 (claimed) 62.56 (tested). I'm not comparing tractors I'm only pointing out a tractor that has been tested and referred to as such is the real deal. Throwing out what may be a paper number on engine hp doesn't inform the buyer as to what the tractor is really capable of when called upon to do work.
