 TC21D or JD4100 .. tips ??

Was wondering if any tractor gurus could help me out ... will be mainly mowing approx 4 acres of flat land, 2 acres will be "lawn" the balance mainly thicker "thatch" .. I'm down to a 21D or a 4100, specs appear pretty close ..21 vs 20hp, 16 vs 17pto, but the thing I noticed was the total pump flow is 7.4gpm on the 4100 vs 6.75on the 21D but the Boomer has a lift capacity of 1265 vs 930 on the Deere ... since I'm thinking I'll get a belly mower, post hole digger, and a blade at first to do some landscaping , then throw a FEL on later ... is there something I'm missing here? Any comments on either of these two tractors would be greatly appreciated !!

 TC21D or JD4100 .. tips ??

The lift capacity you're referring to applies only to the 3pt hitch. So it doesn't impact your use of a belly mower or FEL. And there's no way you'll put a post hole digger or blade (or even a brush hog) on which are heavier than 930 lbs. You'll run out of horsepower long before you run out of lifting capacity. So this really isn't a problem -- I wouldn't worry about the lower rating of the Deere 3pt hitch lift capacity.

Hydraulic pump flow, whether 7.4 or 6.75 GPM, probably won't be an issue for you either. A lot of flow is nice for attachments which use a lot of power and need quick recovery time, like a backhoe, but practically speaking I doubt you'd notice the different between the JD and NH in this respect either!

I'd call this a toss-up on the specs, and instead try to make my choice on the basis of other factors, like the price and after-sale support you expect to get from the dealer, the ease of maintenance, the cost of the FEL and belly mower ... even your favorite color (blue or green?). The TC21 and JD 4100 are pretty similar machines, but I'd bet there are other factors which could make this an easy decision for you.

You didn't mention if you were getting a hydro or gear transmission. If you are going hydro and want functional turning brakes, you'll have to go with the JD. The design of the NH doesn't allow you to use the turning brakes unless you have three legs.

When faced with this same decision, I went with NH because of my personal comfort level with the dealer, and a far superior price. But look at everything and then decide for yourself. Good luck!

I would suggest that since you may add a front end loader you may want to examine the attachement method.
While I am not totally familiar with the TC21 (my local dealer wasn't interested in selling compacts), the JD4100 is
absolutely simple to attach and remove the front end loader literally in less than 5 min.
