Sorry Im a little late to the party! I have to agree to all that was said, but I have more to add. I have a 1455 with a johnson fel
, a HT20, and a HT23. A few things I have noticed are that although my single is way more tourqier than a newer single, it still lacks compared to the twins.
For examle, I have pushed dirt with my 54" blade, and the ht never even grunted. I could easily loose traction, but not power. Granted I know I could have loaded it down some with more traction, but I didn't have much to do, and know for a fact my 1455 would have been cranky doing that.
Last year my buddy wanted a brush pile pushed back on his land, and I had my 1455 there. Naturally I used that to push brush back. That 1 lunger got a workin out that day. I literally had to charge the pile, and back off the pedal as I went to keep from stalling the engine. Now, yes the loader isn't made for that I know, and it wasn't any large logs or anything, but I was careful, nothing got wrecked. Point is, the HT would have just blown though without fast starts, as I know dang well the engines are up to snuff. Those twins are impressive, and a heck of alot smother.
Don't get me wrong, I like singles, but for working LARGE LOADS, it's a twins playing field hands down ;)
