I saw this thread 3 years ago, but never really read it.

But 335A more than my Koenig PTO
The "working harder" part intuitively makes no sense. Your engine doesn't work as hard pulling a load in 1st gear as it does pulling the same load in 4th gear.
Obviously I'm not understanding something, but, at least with the Ramsey worm drives, it seems to be working less hard.
Four wheel drive allows you to get stuck
in places even more inaccessible.
