 Help choosing between TC35D and L3010

We have 55 hilly and wooded acres in NH. I think I need a tractor to move earth and rocks and to harvest firewood for personal use. I've been considering the TC35D and L3010 and would like input from anyone who can help. BTW I have a quote on the TC35D with R4 tires and the 16LA loader... $21,000. Is that the going price these days? Dave

Prices do vary in different parts of the country, but if you've read the other messages, it appears that Scott Murray is buying one for $2k less in Dallas.

Dave, for $21,000 you should be able to buy an L3710, which (I think) is closer to the TC35D than an L3010. I have an L3710 and for 55 acres I wouldn't want anything smaller.

 Help choosing between TC35D and L3010

Hi Dave,

I live in the tri state area of VT, NH, and MA. I found that my local dealer was extremely high on initial cost. (close to retail) I went to the New Holland web site and found the 10 closest dealers in my area. I called each one and let them know that I was calling each one to find the best value. Some dealers couldn't compete with the best prices that I received. I was quoted $20,500.00 for a TC40D (no SS) 16LA 72" HD bucket with a hook welded on, R4's(calcium w/tubes), block heater. The price for a similarly equipped TC35D was $19,300.00 For the extra $1,200.00 I went with the TC40D mostly for the 4 cyl instead of 3 cyl and the higher lift capacity. The 4 cyl runs much smoother.
I only have 25 hrs on it but so far I love it. The only problem that I have had is mentioned in the post "Operating Temp" on this forum. Installing the shut off valve in the coolant drain hose has resolved the issue.

Todd

Hi Todd,
Thanks for the information. Your prices are very interesting. We live in the same area so I should be able to do much the same thing. The price ($21,000) I was quoted may have been a starting point for the dealer, Ryan in Tilton, NH, just 10 miles south of home. With your data I will chat with them again this afternoon. Do you mind telling me who you bought from? I suspect that any dealer in NH would be ok, but I would like to avoid the sales tax eslewhere. But given the right price, sales tax would be ok too.

You make some very good points on the value of 4 cylinders instead of 3. It I could manage the same deal as you did, I would go that way too. Additionally, the package you bought is exactly what I want to start with.

Thanks again for the help.
Dave

Hi Dave, I bought mine from Capital Tractor in Greenwich NY (518) 692-9611. I have included a link to their web site. The salesman's name is Charles Weeden. The sales tax wouldn't be an issue since you live in NH. Bear in mind that buying from a dealer further away has it's disadvantages. Delivery cost as well as service. Also I don't think they made very much money on the deal so I might have caught them at the right time. Moores Corners was another dealer that would match the price but I heard that they are a smaller dealer and I liked the people from Capital. If you like the dealer that is close to you and you can get their price closer to the one that I got, you should seriously consider going local.

Dave, remember the other great thing about New Hampshire -- even if you get your tractor from another state, there is no sales tax as long as it's delivered there! As you have found out, some dealers simply won't do much with price point, even with a sure sale if they were to budge just a bit. I got great quotes (under $19k w/your specs!)from a dealer in NY (on VT border) who was quite willing to deliver to me in Central VT at quoted price w/no tax. I ended up finding a used TC-35D (won't hurt you with the price). Whatever you do, get a feel for your local dealer since that's where the service will be done even if you buy it from far afield. My guy doesn't care (big enough not to know?) where I got my machine so he doesn't look at me twice when I bring it in or come in asking questions. As far as the 3 vs. 4 cylinder smoothness goes, that topic got beat to death a while back in the forum with no clear resolution as to whether it's true or not. I don't think you'll go wrong with either a 35 or a 40 (or probably a 3710 for that matter). Good Luck

Hey Dave,
How far are you from Burlington area, VT. We both a NH dealer and a Kubota dealer. The Kubota dealer, Gary at Essex Rental, usually offers great prices, and if you're not too far, has a great service dept too. No personal experience with Hertz/First Choice, the NH dealer, but when Brian there couldn't get me my Del Morino tiller in less than 3 weeks, he tracked one down at another local dealer, checked their price which was within $25 of his, and sent me there. Gotta respect that!

Todd

PS) Don't buy on specs. Look, touch, drive, and take service access into account. You can compare reasonable prices for Kubotas at Steve Carver's site.

 Help choosing between TC35D and L3010

Thanks to everyone for helping. Today I decided to go tractor driving. I started at the dealer who gave me the quote. I drove the TC35D, the TC40D and a Kubota L4310. I haven't read all the correspondence on 3 or 4 cylinders, but my personal feeling was that the 4 cylinder models, both NH and Kubota, felt smoother and quieter. Body rattles on the TC35D seemed much more apparent. But the biggest difference was the driving and loader characteristics were very different between the NH and Kubota. At this point I find advantages to both with no clear results. I hope to take my wife tractor driving tomorrow. Since I want her to use the tractor too, perhaps she will have stronger feelings about the NH and Kubota units. Regarding price, the dealer seems pretty set at his quote, and was a bit surprised when I suggested that the price might be negotiated. I also went to another dealer who sells Kubota and John Deere. His Kubota prices were very close to the original dealer. So perhaps I have the selling price for the Lakes Region of NH. I plan to call the dealer that you all have suggested. Again, thanks for the help and I would appreciate any additional insights you would like to share.
Dave

Dave,
There's about to be one more tc35d owner. Here's a few of the reason I choose a tc35d over the rest. Boy's the 16LA loader specs says max lifting capacity is 1800lbs!!! That's nearly 1000lbs greater than the loader for all the ~30hp orange, green and blue tractors. The height that this loader can dump is 81in. I put it over a 7ft chain link fence and dumped. Amazing! Aslo, the tc35d has the feul tank in the rear. Much easier to filler-up. The rap-around headlights, the tilt and tele steering wheel, and the 72" bucket. The really slick HST package where there is no clutch and you can jump into a higher speed at the flip of a switch or the press of a button on the loader joystick and back again. Oh and let's talk about the Joystick. The position of that right next to my hip is great. No more reaching for the knob. But to show that I was totally awed,NH need to get there act together on this sloppy seat belt setup. Give me somewhere to tuck it or better yet spring loaded. They've pack a lot of creature features in this baby. I've got a good out the door price of right at 18,500. gary
