 JD 4500 vs NH TC40 Pricing

I received quotes from 2 diffterent JD and NH dealers today. The NH TC40 with FWD, Dual SCVs, R4's (loaded) 16LA FEL wit Heavy Duty Bucket $19475.00, 758C Backhoe $6975.00, 6' Heavy Duty Box Scraper $550, 5' Heavy Duty Bush Hog with slip clutch and chains $1650.00 Total Price with setup and delivery $28650.00. The John Deere 4500 with FWD, Power-Reverser Tranny, R4's (loaded) and Dual SCVs was $16500.00, 460 FEL with Heavy Duty Bucket $3300.00, (Total Tractor + FEL = $19,800.00) 6' Heavy Duty Box Scraper $550.00, 5' MX5 Bushhog with slip clutch and chains $1395.00, 48 Backhoe $6600.00. Total with setup and delivery $28,345.00. I think the Bush Hog on the NH is a little heavier, so it's almost an exact match price wise. Both dealerships have excellent reputations and both are equidistant from me. All things being equal, I'm leaning towards the JD, but am not certain. Any (informed) opinions?

They're both fine tractors, Louie. Spend a little time on each one, and buy the one you're most comfortable with. You can't go wrong either way.

 JD 4500 vs NH TC40 Pricing

Louie, I think the prices you got on the JD setup are very good. I am comparing to when I bought my 4400 with 430 loader and 48 backhoe. The best price I found on a MX5, for example, was $1600. The heavy duty Bush Hog is heavier than the MX5 - I think the medium duty Bush Hog 285 rotary cutter is pretty equivalent to the MX5. I like the 48 backhoe better than the 758C for a number of reasons, the primary being easy of attachment and removal. I think the 460 loader is great, but then again I like the 16LA design alot also. I think you can't go wrong with either of these setups. I agree with Bird to try them out, but I would encourage also attaching and removing the implements a couple times. Also try what somebody posted awhile ago (I think it was Roger Loving) and drive the tractor, stop, get off, walk to the other side, get back on, and repeat for awhile. Get on and off the backhoe five or six times. You will be surprised how much a little thing like entry/exit contortions tires you out after a while. Especially with a backhoe where you have to move the tractor all the time. I don't know representative pricing on the NH line that well.

 JD 4500 vs NH TC40 Pricing

After extensive testing on both units today, the winner is... The NH TC40. I found the ergonomics of the controls better on the NH along with the entry and exit. The NH 16LA FEL was a winner hands down due to visibility.

On the JD 4500, I liked the 48 backhoe better than the NH 758C, but thought it was only marginally better (except for attachment - which is much easier on the Deere). The JD 460 FEL also attaches and detaches easier, but since it will remain on the tractor 95% of the time, I didn't give it much consideration (but would if I planned to constantly attach and detach it).

The 3 point system on the NH seemed much easier to work with for attachment of equipment.

I preferred the heavier Bush Hog in the NH package over the JD MX5 for my particular use.

Additionally, the hydraulic controls for the FEL on the Deere seemed much less sturdy (cheap) compared to those on the NH.

The final deciding factor was that the NH dealer did not have a TC40 in stock, so he offered the TC40D for the same price (rather than have to locate one and arrange a trade).

Louie, sounds like you did your homework well! And got a TC40D for the price of a TC40 in the bargain. I think you gave an excellent example of comparing two setups for your specific needs and doing a rational assessment. Good luck with your new baby. And keep us posted on your experiences with it.

That seems like a good price for both machines. What area do you live? I live in Eastern Pa. and got a price of about $18500 for a JD 990 w/ loader.
