 Boomer Steering

Greetings all,Just surfed in from the John Deere threads and wanted to pose a question to Boomer owners. Seems that a lot has been written by JD 4xxx owners about turf tearing (scuffing) when cornering. Has anyone ever seen this problem with the Boomer series compacts? Thanks much, in advance, for any feedback.Burgie

Burgie... This'll prbly set off a firestorm here... I got my new TC29D too late in the season to do any serious mowing, but it'll definitely make black marks on concrete (low speed) when turning at full lock, so I imagine it would damage turf too. I got mine without supersteer, so it has a very short wheelbase, just like the JD 4XXX series. I suspect the dirtly little secret is that this behavior is typical of any of the compacts. (Plus, my old Ford 8N did it too!) I expect you'll get other responses. My basic opinion is that if it's fine finish mowing you're after, you might do better looking at specific-purpose mowers.

Burgie, I've got a TC25D/supersteer, with a 72" deck and I mow in second range
(5-6MPH)WITH R-4 tread and have never turned up any grass, I always leave it in auto 4X4 and haven't ever tried it with the 4X4 locked (No Reason To MowIn 4X4)
I can turn as tight as I can around trees and never leave a mark. I have heavier
soil (NO Sand) I'm sure others may not believe this but I test drove John Deere and Krapbota and the NH was the only one that wouldn't leave marks, maybe the supersteer is the answer?? (Just kidding about Krapbota) I like to stir things up once and awhile!!

Richard & Jerry, thanks for your inputs!! I am buying a new home on 2-2.5 acres of completely un-landscaped land. I plan on using my tractor for a variety of chores including preparing the land for a new lawn (tilling, grading, seeding, fertilizing, etc), tilling for a veggie garden, yearly landscaping chores (planting, mulch, etc), lawn mowing, and snowplowing to name a few. I believe that all makes of compact tractors have their own unique merit and it is up to the buyer to select that which will suit his/her needs the best. Nonetheless, it is during forums such as this that the true colors of the machines come to light. Every salesman will tell you that their particular machine is the best....and rightly so I suppose. But for a $15k- $20k investment, I like to hear unbiased reports from owners in the field. They speak the truth without fearof repercussion or persecution. Lots of wind....but thanks again, guys...and to whomever else may post a reply.

Burgie

Burgie, with the merger of New Holland and CaseIH I think the future of the compacts in New Hollands line up might change. With having Case management running the shooting match and knowing that Case made the decission to get rid of the compacts they were marketing what might happen to the boomer? Other than the tractors with super-steer have been found to be to low of ground clearance for excavation work they do seem to be a tractor that has made a impact in some areas.

Burgie,
If you plan on using a loader at all, you should be aware of the concerns with using a loader with supersteer. Since the supersteer axle sits about 10" futher foward than the standard axle, there is some concern with it interfering with loader operation.

Chris/Art...thanks!! As a point of interest, if I decide on the Boomer series, I would purchase w/o the supersteer. Nonetheless, the info is nice to know!! And, yes, I would be using a loader as well as other implements!!

I have a TC25D with supersteer, loader and backhoe. I highly recommend the supersteer even with the loader. I have a small backyard I have driven on fully loaded making tight turns and don't scuff the turf. The super steer is a super asset. Now that I have it, I would hate to be without it. I have no problems with the loader and supersteer.

Chris What are you a John Deere salesman?? The supersteer in no way interfers with the loader function, If you don't know what your talking about don't talk!
The supersteer is the only way to go, don't buy a boomer without it!!
