    Do you do it, or just let it be?
    Think a 2001 NH TS110 would hold up okay on a blower if turned up to 110 PTO hp?

    well first is the tractor mechanical injection or electronic?
    if its mechanical,then you need to find a dealer with a pto dyno and run the tractor up to working temp and see what it currently has for hp.if not turn the screw on the pump a little and redyno until your happy.
    no if its electronic,well then your gonna need a chip or somebody with a laptop to change the fuel settings.
    the tractor is around 80-90 hp right now im guessing? if your only going to 110 you should fine,just keep track of your temp gauge when unload full load

    It's a mechanical fuel injection, so it's a pretty simple thing to do. Just like you said, turn the screw for more power. The only thing I'm worried about is that the 110 is the biggest tractor in the TS series so some parts may not be specked to handle the higher load.

    The tractor is advertised at 90 PTO hp, but most have 95 or so.

    You should be just fine. I have a JD 7400 which is 105pto hp and i have it making just over 130 with no problems. All my other farm equipment is also turned up with no problems.

    From what I can tell, no one has a problem with turning up tractors a little bit except the dealer who wants to sell you a bigger tractor. payup

    And the dealer who will void your warrenty LOL
    I would turn the fuel up a lil, advance the timing and ditch the muffler :}

    That sounds like a good idea. Customers get too much sleep anyhow.
