The DongFeng DF-504G3 2019 tractor
The "heavy" parts of the DongFeng tractor seem to be well made and resist on the long run.
It is a very big compact tractor, not a mini or micro tractor as some
Iseki's, Yanmar's or Kubota's.
This tractor is strong and heavy enough
to plow, move huge mobil-homes, or for to work in the forest.

Direct Injection Diesel
The diesel engine, Chinese build CHANGCHAI brand, type 4G50B,
is a 3.26 liter 4 cylinder engine.
The power is 50 hp (36,8kW) at 2400 rpm (12 hours measuring).
The engine's torque, the tractor's weight and size are also important: Torque 164.7 Nm at 1680 rpm
Weight 2090 Kgs, with cabin 2260. Wheel base 1880 mm.
The fully synchronised gearbox of the G3-models offers the same easiness as in your car.
12 Forward and 12 Rearward gears, allow a speed range
from 1.6 km/h up to 33.1 km/h, at 2400 rpm.
With the optional "Creeper gears" the tractor will have 24 forward gears and rearwards,
and a first creeper gear giving 210 m/h at 2400 rpm.
The synchronised shuttle shift allows rapid handling without too low speeds
when going rearwards.
PTO : power take off
The PTO is a standard 6 splines 1"3/8 (35 mm).
It is actioned by it's own wet clutch.
The PTO is a twin speed: 540 and 1000 rpm to drive all kinds of standard implements.
Two hydraulic systems
Two independant hydraulic systems:
A small, dedicated pump for the power steering makes steering a light job,
also when you action other hydraulic tools.
The second system, with a bigger pump (33.6 L/min) actions the Cat. 1 and 2 Three point suspension,
and two double hydraulic outlets:
these outlets can feed all kinds of hydraulic implements, like a front loader,
a backhoe, wood splitter etc.
