 Super Steer pros and cons

Looking for some opions on the super steer. Is it worth the cost? Is is reliable? What are the down falls? Thinking about the TC40DA? Thanks

 Super Steer pros and cons

It does cut the turning radius of the tractor to make a tight turn, or tighter then much of the competition. It does take extra moving parts to do that so you do have the additional parts that might wear and need replacement.

I guess I am worried about the service life. When does it start to give you problems and what is the cost of maintance/repairs on the system? What is the reliability factor?

 Super Steer pros and cons

If you judge reliability by the absence of complaints here it seems to be very reliable. I can't recall anyone having problems with it. One possible downside is that the outside of the tractor moves slightly the opposite way during a turn. IOW, when turning right the left side of the tractor moves a bit left at the start of the turn as the axle pivots right. This might be a concern if you negotiate close quarters. The other concern is front axle load rating. Make sure that the loader capacity isn't downgraded when using SuperSteer.

 Super Steer pros and cons

If you are using a loader, turning the steering wheel will move the loader in the opposite direction some because the axle moves side to side. It takes some time to get used to, especially in tight quarters. Once you get used to it you can use it to your benefit. On a TC33D, the SS model has a longer wheel base which I think has helped me doing loader work. My primary use is mowing and am glad I have SS for turning tight. My tires don't dig up the yard even turning tight. My SS system seems to be a simple design and heavy duty. Drive both and buy the one you really want.

I have a TC33D w/out SS and I think the turning radius is just fine. I don't do a lot of close quarters mowing though.

 Super Steer pros and cons

We have quite a few super steers out with well over 1000 hours on and no problems. Just remember to keep every thing greased. As far as the load rating, there is no difference.

 Super Steer pros and cons

When I purchased my tractor my dealer discouraged me from purchasing the super steer. The reason he did that is because I planned to do a lot of lawn mowing and he said the regular steering would tear the turf less with a larger turning circle. The regular steer really is quite manuverable and very good for most needs. I would only get supersteer if I need to work within a barn - cleaning manure etc.

 Super Steer pros and cons

My primary use for my tractor was going to be mowing. So I knew I wanted the belly mower and tighter turning would be a plus. I test drove a SS equipped tractor on a gravel parking area noting how much the front tires would push. I was amazed at how little it disturbed the ground. I bought a TC33D with SS and I do lawn mowing and love it.

Poorfarm, your dealer was way off. They will not tear up the turf and to try and do loader work with them in a barn is asking for trouble, because the bucket will go in the opposite direction that you steer.
