Funny Thing Horsepower

I find it interisting that our machines have about 43hp and does what it does. I also have a 1940 Ford 9N tractor with 23 hp and it does everything I need on the farm for haying. Granted it doesnt do 75 mph and any air time is with a jack. but dmn only 23hp and it builds the track. got to love those old folks.
