 JD OR NH

I'm in the process of buying a JD 4710 OR a NH TC45D.
JD is an E hydro with 460 heavy duty loader with a cutting blade, heater block,1 set rear remotes, loaded tires (r4s) for a total of 24500.
The NH has loaded tires (r4s) heater block, FEL, hydro for 23500. My ? is the JD that much better.

Do you get a cutter blade with the TC45D? Both are good tractors. What you are asking is decision you must make after hopefully demo'ing both of these models. The 4710 has features such as the ehydro, MotionMatch, LoadMatch, and others that the TC45D does not have. My personal opinion would be for the 4710 (big surprise here right fellas! ;o) for its ergonomic features and my experiences with these tractors.

My guess is that the resale on the JD is a little better so you may get the $1k price diff back in the end. They are both nice machines though, and you can't go wrong with either one. Is one dealer better than the other? A good dealer really makes the difference.

I bought a TC45 over the JD. Most of the tractors that we had on the farm when I was growing up were JD tractors, so I like that brand very much. I do not regret my NH purchase one bit. I felt that I got more tractor for the money with NH, but a bigger factor was that I did not get along with the JD dealer and I have had nothing but good experiences with the NH dealer. I live in the west in NM. There is only one JD dealer and one NH dealer within 100 miles of where I live, so the dealer/customer relationship is very important.

 JD OR NH

I purchased a NH TC45D in March '03. I demoed JD, Massey, and Kubota, and I chose the NH because I was the most comfortable on it. Personally, I think JD is a little overpriced, mainly because the company is spread too thin. There is too much corporate money spent on things that do nothing to improve the quality of their equipment.(I am not saying that anything of theirs is low quality) My local JD dealer has more toys, clothes, or other stuff than they do tractors and implements. Although, the new JD 110 tractor/loader/backhoe is an excellent machine, well worth the $40,000 or so they are selling for.

I would expect that JD is like most corporations these days, in that all the deviations from their main product line must either make a profit or come out of the marketing budget. Besides, I LIKE the hats Smile It's all about product identification and nobody in the tractor industry does that like JD.

My other complaint is that they advertise many JD products that are completely made by other companies. The only thing JD on them is the sticker, and many JD dealers won't service or can't get parts for them. I don't know if this relates to their tractors. I do know that most NH CUT's have asian engines, but the tractors are made right here.

By the way, I like some of the JD hats too, can't find a nice NH hat anywhere.

I thought most of the NH CUT machines were Shibaura (sp?), not just the engines, but I've been known to be wrong. This was my understanding when I was shopping.

I will check the ID plate on the tractor tomorrow, but I say that because I know they come from the NH plant in Dublin, GA. They could be just assembled there, not made there. Now you got me curious...

Something I found interesting is Shibaura engines are a owned or that was my interpitation of the Catipilar site when you type in Shibaura engines.com, the real funny thing was the dealer didnt know this.
