 Used JD 855 vs New New Holland TC30

80's JD 855, loader, belly finish mower, 4WD, 24HP, good condition, $9k, no warranty, 6% financing

versus

2003 New Holland TC30, NO implements, 2WD, 30 HP, $10,500, 24 month warranty, 0% financing for 36 months

I'm leaning toward the JD at this point due to the implements and the 4WD. The TC30 has an $1,100 option for 4WD. Thoughts please?! I'm new to tractors.

If you want a loader 4WD is a must. You will also need implements. To make the comparison valid you'd need to add in the cost of 4WD, FEL, and comparable implements to the TC30 - I'm guessing at maybe $7000 for new stuff. This brings the comparison to $9k+interest for a 24hp machine vs. $17.5k for a 30 hp machine. Only your budget and needs can answer that, but it's always nice to have new stuff with a warranty. And tractor repairs can cost a LOT.

noobie-
about 4 yrs ago I was same, if all possible go with the new equip, unless your mechanically inclined and have the tools to repair, I bought used and had tractor in and out ofshop from electical to pinion gear problems several times during a yr. As to implements check with neighbors I know a few here lent me theirs , york rake,brush hog etc until I could afford my own.
