Neither one would be my choice. Something along the lines of an H or M would be better. The A or 9N would be ok for sickle bar mowing or raking but neither would handle modern haying equipment well in my book.

Yep to what Big dog says. Your modern mowing equipment crushes the stems for quicker drying, This takes a lot of power. I think it is more obvious with balers with kickers and the size snd heft of the large round balers of a need for more power.

To operate a 1950's square baler you really need a live pto. You need to be able to stop the tractor's forward motion while keeping the baler working.

There are manufacturers making small sized haying equipment. But, the small sized equipment is as expensive as full sized.

Just thinking back about 55 years. Mowing , raking, and elevator work, either the A or 9N. Baler and wagon work - need a larger, more powerful, heavier tractor. We normally put 80 to 100 bales, each weighing between 60 and 100 lbs, on a hay rack/flat bed wagon.

Hay racks. Their trailing ability was usually very sloppy. Worked great at slow speed. Put a load on the hay rack and tractor in 4th or 5th gear, going down hill. Next thing you know the hay rack is pushing the tractor and was whipping back and forth sliding the tractor's rear tires sideways.
I have an excuse. CRS.

As already stated by others it all depends on what you are doing. Back in the 50's and '60's I had hundreds of miles under my belt on a Ford 2N pulling a ground driven hay rake and nothing more. We baled with both PTO driven and engine driven balers and loaded large wagon loads using a John Deere 60 or a Super M. With the Ford today you could pull an old engine driven baler and load small loads......maybe. If you are using more modern equipment you need a more modern tractor.

There are pipes available to change the rear exhaust to routed up beside the hood and straight up.
