 TC33 vs TC40

I am in the process of buying an new tractor and would like to know what others feel are the pro and con on either tractor. I plan on buying 4 acres of bare ground and will develope this with a new house, 50x60 shed, a new grove that will be kept black (tilled) for the first several years. I plan on doing alot of landscaping and once the develpement is done, it will be used mostly for mowing with a rear mount mower.

 TC33 vs TC40

4 Acres ? No chance of buy more land? Mowing involved intensly in the future? I would go TC33 hands down no questions asked especially for what you stated the uses would be for.
I own the TC40, its a large machine and for 4 acres it may be over kill. MAY BE is the key words. There may be other things to consider, where you plan on storing the tractor and make sure it will fit in that place.
The TC33 was on my list and untill the last moment (with dealer input) he talked me into the Larger machine. (ALONG WITH) help from this board! I have 160 acres. almost 20 acres under plow (but 10 of those acres I let a farmer down the road use). I am very very happy with the TC40 but I do feel the TC33 is more than large enough for your question. Unless you plan on larger scale uses for it and less mowing (I assumed your talking finish mowing)
Good luck, keep us posted

The 40 would be best now with the house project with the larger scale of soil movement. Later after the construction work is done the 33 would be more then enough and more manuveable for mowing.

 TC33 vs TC40

I am actually in the same boat as demcoed. TC33 or TC40? And I have decided that I think I will go with the TC40. Here are my reasons: #1 is Frame size. Just walk around the two machines. I would never forgive myself for getting a tractor that is too small to pull a pickup out of the mud or help a car out of a ditch for example. #2 is the loader capability. The maximum lift capacity of the 15LA loader (for the TC33) is about 1582 lbs, vs the 16LA (TC40) at about 2320 lbs. So, if ever you want to move heavier stuff, this little extra might matter. And while we are on hydraulic capabilities, look also at the 3 pt hitch numbers: (1635 lbs vs 2330 lbs) That's the difference in effectivly moving something heavy on the back, vs barely getting it off the ground. #3 is just the simple HP reasons. Drop a small plow or tiller in the ground, and that little extra is gonna go a long way.

Yes, I know I can't fully justify the TC40, but imagine the regret I would have for not being able to do one of my small jobs due to the tractor not having quite enough umph.

I will say this in defense of the TC33... great tractor. I really like it, and deciding to go up a notch was tough. Perhaps I will regret the bigger machine, but gotta go with my gut!

Just my situation and feelings about it.

Those are good reasons to go bigger. Price, manueverability, towability, implement prices and storage are good reasons to go smaller. My JD is about the same size as a TC33 and if it were any bigger I'd never be able to get in and around in the woods.

I agree with that completely... Number of trees should be a big factor for sure...

That sounds like the lift capacity with the old 7308 (IIRC) loader. I believe the newer machines have an upgraded front axle and lift more with the new curved arm loader.

Woops! I deleted my statement rather than replied. The numbers I stated; 878 lbs. and 1386 lbs. are for the Case DX33 and DX35 respectively. That came from a 2004 catalog specifying LX114 and LX116 loaders. The higher numbers mentioned may be at the king pins which is not realistic. A neighbor of mine has the DX33 and is not happy with the lift capacity and tiny front tires of the 33. Lifting heavy loads way out in front of the tractor is more difficult (either requires larger cylinders or higher psi) and requires more rear ballast.

Ken: according to the JD book your 430 loader has a 1261 lb. lift capacity at the pivot pin which would be actually less at the bucket.

Marketing of performance specs is intended to create confusion. The 430 loader has done everything I've needed, even with the 600 lb. grapple installed. That's the bottom line I guess.
