I only have about 75 hrs. on my TC21D and it has been perfect. My bigest complaint is the cost of the filters for the 50hr service. The only one the auto parts place could cross reference was the fuel filter (which is the cheapest anyway). The tractor does have a made in japan label,I believe it is the same factory.

i am thinking of getting a 5 ft finishing mower. do you think the tc21d will pull it or should i stick with a 4 ft. my 1120 did well to pull the 4 ft.

I have a TC18 Hydro and it does a great job pulling a 3 pt. 5' rear discharge Woods finish mower. The only problem was the weight on the rear and I mainly solved that with front weights, I don't have a front end loader. If my TC18 can handle it, then I know the TC21 will. I have about 40+ hours on mine and I couldn't have made a better choice in a tractor, Dealer, value, quality! This is one rugged little tractor, I can't wait for snow to fly to see how it handles that, don't know yet if I'll need chains or not. Jim

this is in response to KG's whining about the cost of the oil filter. I am amazed when someone pays good money for a tractor and complains about the price of the most important parts of the tractors systems. They may be pricey but necessary. Just take good care of your machine and it will repay your efforts many times over the owner who skimps on service. Guaranteed.

Greg- KG wasn't "whining" about the cost of the oil filter. He's not stupid and knows that oil filtration is important. If you were perceptive you would know that he was disgusted in having to pay 100% more for a product that if it was available out of the dealer loop would drop the price from $8 to $4. KG wanted value for his buck. You probably believe that price=quality. Got a news flash for you, ain't always so. Dealers love people like you-pay going rate no questions asked and believe the myth of P=Q. I'll stick with guys like KG , they keep manufacturers honest. Incidently, what kind of filters do you put in your cars or does jiffylube do it and you have no idea. Webmaster-Mls- this sound familiar?

Bo and Greg relax. Maybe I was whineing a bit about paying $100 for the 5 filters I bought. But this seems like the perfect place to do just that. mostly I was just trying to share information with other folks who are comparing different brands of tractors. If everthing else is equal but the filter change cost 3x times what it should, that can be a deciding factor. Lets help people make good choices by sharing as much info as we can.

Has anyone looked at the oil filter study at minimopar.simplenet.com? Interesting stuff.

Roger- I was a diehard Fram user until I read the filter study and now I am a diehard confused person searching for the right filter. A good piece of work done by that guy. bo

Bo, just don't overlook the fact that they guy who did that "study" admits not having the technical knowledge; just one person's opinion (and I don't have the technical knowledge either). It's been 40 years since I sold Fram oil filters, but I'm still using them, and I've never had a lubrication related problem with ANY engine in my life. We've each got our own personal quirks, and one of mine is to change the filter EVERY time I change oil; not every other time, and since I bought a new Kubota this year, I did buy several spare Kubota filters (don't know yet whether Fram makes them for this new model) and of course, those Kubota filters cost four times as much as a Fram, so I'll be checking later to see if Fram has filters for this tractor.
