sounds like plenty of tractor for you, but I'd say go for it! a 1070 is around 105 hp, Yes, you only need a tractor about 1/2 that size...BUT....you're going to pay just as much for one at 50 hp and probably not have the a/c or heat...or even a cab for that matter

We had a 1070 for several years, and it was a very good, dependable tractor. Used it mainly for wagons, chopping stalks, and snowblower duty. Powershift never gave us trouble. Starts easy in cold weather (had a tank heater). I think it would be a little big for what you need, but that is your call. You'll have it if you need it. It's a lot of tractor for the money. If you want more technical info, Fern is right, head over to the Case board.

Your tractor question would be better answered over on the Tractor and Case boards.
Good Luck
