Horsepower to pull a 24 row ccs planter?
Wondering what size of tractor would pull it just fine. I’ve got an 8420 John Deere with single front wheels and am wanting to upgrade to a 24 row planter. Just wondering if I’m gonna need something a bit bigger?

Thanks for info. Just heard they have a lot of tongue weight and am worried about that in the 8420
We used to use a 8400 got along just fine.
