There was a guy who used a 112 near here and did well. This was years ago and he had done something to the varidrive to keep it from slipping. Does the 110 have vari? If so, they may cause you some fits.

Not if the driver doesn't know what he's doing.

 

Thats like me saying a Wheel Horse will out pull a Ford all day long. It's true, but a JD can be a decent puller if set up right

True , but in the hands of a good puller, the Sears will do better, especially in lighter classes. Out here, I have yet to see a Deere pull well yet. Big tractors yes, but the garden rigs nope.
The Cubs are still pretty tough to beat as are the 'Horses! They jus plain pull AWSOME!! In a strickly stock class its tough to beat a Sears though, I am very impressed with them .

Every time I've seen that rig it was either broken or it didn't run right. IT actually went pretty good this weekend though! But its not stock !

I know this thread was from a year ago, but....

 

I started with JD 110's. I liked the looks  since a JD 4020 is my all time favorite tractor. They work well in the yard and garden. I used mine to pull a Brinley 10 inch plow in the garden and it did so pretty well, but that Variator is easy to slip unless you have new belts. Some guys have eliminated the variator and went with a single belt. Most do as I eventually did, put a 110 body on a Cub Cadet chassis. I pulled two years in a row with my 69 110 and my daughter had a 66 round fender 110. We never got past 80 feet. Another guy at our pulls had a 110 and it did ok, but not as good as a Cub, Wheel Horse or Sears.

I have a john deere 210 that I pull. I have beat cubs and sears and they have beat me, so with that said, It is all about how the tractor is set up. I still have the variatior on mine, but I don't change the speed while I am on a pass down the track. I am still using the same belts that were on it when I drug it out of the junk row. I also run 23-10.50x12 tires so I can gear the tractor somewhat. The biggest help I found was not using wheel weights, I made brackets to hang weights on the frame so I could move it around to help dial in the weight distribution.
