Quad trac rowtrac vs. Higher HP front wheel assist

So am i missing something, it really seems like case rowtracs of the same era and hours are priced quite a bit less than deere front wheel assist of similar hp. We are and always have been deere but wanting a new planter/grain cart tractor and seems the quad is a better value? Does the row trac take X amount of hp just to turn the belts? Ie: a 420 is really a 350 in deere terminology?
