 looking for NH compact tractor.

Hello everyone,

Im new here and am hoping that this will be in the right forum, but am looking for a NH compact tractor 20-30 hp with front end loader. Has to be MFWD and hoping for less than 750 hours and or not older than 1999. I have $10000 cash. Trans im not to picky about, would prefer hydro tho. The reason im enquiring here is that im getting a little frustrated with all this shopping about. I live in Holloway, MN so am kind of limited with dealers who can jack up prices,so i thought id go to the people who know best, fellow customers. Ive been reading postings here and other sites with people who are happy with the way theyve been treated by their dealers and the prices they received. So if anyone can help point me in the right direction id be most grateful. I would be willing to travel upto 500 miles for the right price/deal. Again i hope i dont upset anybody posting this here.

All the best to you all..

regards.

 looking for NH compact tractor.

We're happy to see such a posting here.

If this is your first, they're not like cars in that most tractor owners do all of the routine servicing and some of the repairs. If you have little experience or wrench-smarts, you'll be dependent on a dealer for info and parts, and the closer the better. But if you are relatively self-reliant and are willing to take a bit of a chance, I'd suggest you go online to your local Craig's List and Kijiji and call up "tractors." You can also post a free "Item Wanted" notice.

Different brands have different inroads in market areas. You don't want to have the only NH within 100 miles, and there are others that work similarly and as well, such as Deere and Kubota, so be flexible.

When you get some likely possibilities, feel free to come back.

 looking for NH compact tractor.

Thankyou for your reply Auberbach. Also thatkyou for your suggestions on where to look. Most machines around where i live are green, but never have been fond of them as i find them grossly overpriced and quite honestly no better than the other major brands. As for repair, i own my own diesel repair shop so am not worried about that. We do have a NH dealer about 40 miles away if needed. Again thankyou for your reply and ill keep you informed

I wasn't sure you knew which end of the wrench you're supposed to hammer with -- and you have a diesel shop!

Let me observe this, then, though you're likely ahead of me on this too. Tractors don't do the work; it's the attachments. What implements you need depend on the work to be done, but with a loader, blower, hoe, mower, tiller, you can pay way more for them, especially if bought separately, than for the tractor.

Somewhere, there's a good tractor with a bad engine along with the attachments you want. That would be worth looking for!

Auerbach,

Again thankyou for your reply, yeah i had thought about buying a junker, but unfortunatly dont have the time with
work and all my other projects. However i did fail to mention what i needed it for. My wife has horses so we need it to muck out the barns. Also snow blowing will be necessary to but my "honey do" list first means i have to level and make an outdoor arena. so ground leveling is a must, our ground isnt too sloped but still. Im not planning to purchase eveything at once so figured tractor and loader is a good place. Oh and yeah i know which end of the wrench i can use as a hammer Laughing out loud.

 looking for NH compact tractor.

I'm new here as well.

I got my TC40D on Ebay. It was mint. It came with loader and rear mower.

I did a lot of searching and as I stated on here when I joined, the brand didn't really matter to me. I like all tractors as long as they work right.

Before I latched onto my Ebay deal, I was looking at TractorHouse.com

I've seen some nice New Hollands on there, I think there's a nice 40HP for like 13k.

I shopped around for a couple of years to be honest because I wanted to find the ultimate deal. I knew it would come eventually.

The folks on this forum have been really informative, as I'm very behind when it comes to everything associated with a tractor but I'm experienced in buying and selling. I looked for deals based on whether or not the seller HAD to sell, not whether they WANTED to.

And don't get me wrong, I don't wish anyone ill and feel horrible when I see someone get a divorce (although they're probably thrilled) but have seen numerous units go for a nice price because of the events at hand. Also when someone passes on, the family usually wants to get rid of things quickly.

I remember missing out on a Farm Pro tractor, loader and rear mower for 5k and the thing was nearly new. The family didn't know what to set the price at. Someone else got it. I don't know if I could have done that in good conscience anyway so I didn't sweat over it.

I hope you find a nice unit. I think the good tractor/bad engine was excellent advice.

Haunter, maybe you missed out on a bargain near-new Farm-Pro with costly attachments. Or maybe, just maybe, the tractor was suffering from Chinese Build Quality Syndrome (and there seems to be a lot of that going around at the moment) and you're lucky it's someone else's problem now.

Thanks for replying Haunter. Your right i should be more patient, i just have certain goals around my home to get done this year. Also by no means did i reject auerbachs idea of good tractor bad engine, infact i really like the idea, its just that im too busy, and i mean that in a good way. Also im trying to get my wife set up on her business too, we just moved here last june and she trains horses and i want to give her the complete facilities to do that rain or shine, or inthe case of MN a crap load of snow. Again Auerbach and TheHaunter thanks for your advice and comments, I need to learn to be patient i guess is the moral of the story.

You might be right. I don't want any issues with a tractor, I have enough other stuff going on. Maybe everything "does" happen for a reason.

You're very welcome. When I got my TC40D, I paid 17,500 for it. They're going for 19-23 grand used, and that's just for an "04 like I have. I feel a tremendous amount of pride that I was able to wait, because trust me, I got a great machine.

The wait was tough though. I went with Uship.com and had it shipped here from Tennesee (I live in Pennsylvania) It cost me 500 bucks. For that price I had to wait nearly a month. In that time, we got hit with HORRIFIC snow and I was kicking myself. I learned though, I'm glad I made that choice because I saved several hundred dollars by waiting.

When you pick a machine (and as I said, I don't know very much about tractors, I'm just getting my tractor skills back after YEARS of not using one) you should be very selective and informed. Don't jump on the first deal you see, because you might see a better one down the road and kick yourself. Ten thousand dollars is a LOT of money. I'm sure it came hard to you, like my money did to me.

I'm sure you'll love your NH when you get it though. I'm being unbiased when I tell you that I truly love my machine. I could have gotten a green one, or an orange one but the blue one was just right for me. Not dissing the other ones, I love ALL tractors if they're quality. I just like the way NH is set up, it works for "me". I was knocking stumps out of the ground two days ago and couldn't believe how easily they just TORE out of the ground, roots and all. I was looking for stumps in the neighbors yards Laughing out loud and wanted to ask if they wanted my FREE services just so I could do it some more. My yard is all torn up now haha. Hey I'm 39 and feel like a little kid on this thing. I think it's adding years to my life. Please take your time and get something that will make you as happy as mine does me... Who ever said that things don't make you happy should be smacked upside the head. I'm pretty happy on the NH. It's the first thing in my life that actually listened to me when I told it what to do Laughing out loud, I'm a married man if you know what I mean Wink yeah right
