 Installation/Removal Ease

I am shopping for a Tractor/Loader/Mower combo. I haven't narrowed it beyond Deere, New Holland and possibly Kubota, but I prefer the more contemporary looks and ergonomics of Deere and New Holland. I own 10 acres of land I will be building on soon. I will need to finish mow appx. 3-3 1/2 acres, push snow and do various loader work. Maybe mow the balance of the land as a pasture if I stop having it planted. My wife will probably do alot of the mowing as she enjoys it and came from a farm as a young person. We think we want a mid-mount-mower. My question is, "Which of these three brands is easiest to install and remove the MMM and while were at it, what about ease of installation and removal of front-end-loaders? Thank you for your opinions. It seems like I have been on the verge of buying a tractor for 8 months now, but I am not on the land yet, but I also keep having just one more issue to resolve in order to make a decision! Thanks again.

 Installation/Removal Ease

Alan,

I recently bought a New Holland and opted for a rear mower for two reasons. First was that the mid mower is a lot more expense and I thought it provided lessflexibility. If you have a mid mount, you won't have a lot of ground clearance, which may be important if you're planning to work on a lot of uneven terrain. From what I hear, the mid mount mowers are also not that easy to remove. However, I must agree that a mid mount is probably easier to use since it doesn't swing out when you make sharp turns. My wife refuses to mow with my rear mount mower for that reason.

Mark

 Installation/Removal Ease

Alan, I have owned all three brands. The Kubota and Deere are about the same for mower removal, the N/H comes off easily but is more difficult to install if you are alone, particularly if it is not on a flat smooth surface. You must slide the rear wheels sideways, which can be difficult. The Deere and N/H loaders are a snap to remove and install, I haven't used one on a kubota yet. I tried a three point mower, if you have any amount of trimming, go for the belly mower. The time you save with removal and installation of the three point will be more than eaten up by extra maneuvering later.

Alan, I like both Kubota and NH for various reasons, but I think the JD 4000 series beats both of them for both loader and belly mower attach and detach. I also bought the belly mower both for trimming and because my wife was more comfortable with it. Also, the JD belly mower is the only one of the bunch that is compatible with a frame-mounted backhoe (JD 47 or 48).

 Installation/Removal Ease

I have a JD 4400. I really like the way the mower and loader work for on/off. I helped a friend with his NH 33D, the loader was a snap. The mower on the other hand was not.......I at least found it hard to get on and off. One thing that helps a lot would be to leave the loader on until the mower is on the thing. Use the bucket to push the front end off the ground.....there is a bar for the supersteer (I think) that is in the way of the front wheels of the mower and will not clear them in anyway with out the front of the tractor raised. I can remove my mower in about 3 min. and put it on in about 5. I like a belly mower for the control....Hope all this helps....

Alan, you've asked a loaded question. As previously mentioned, you should go to each of the dealers, discuss what you plan on doing, test drive the suggested model, LISTEN to your wife as she will have a direct bearing on the final choice, and then begin to deal. I chose the JD 4100 because it fit our budget and current needs. NH and Kubota were comparably priced in our area (liked blue, no like pumpkin ;-o )The FEL and MMM are very easy to remove on a level surface. Key word is level surface. If you don't have a concrete pad on your site or a shed to store the equipment, build one. You'll thank yourself later. For the first month after receiving my 4100, I stored my FEL on the ground. Needless to say, a lot flowery language and sweat was apparent when mounting the FEL. I now store it on our parking pad. Takes 5 to 10 minutes depending on how fast I move. It takes longer to move the MMM into position than actual attachment. I have no experience or have talked to anyone about the other implement attachment/detachment. Oh yes, I would strongly suggest getting the HST. Makes your life easy and your wifes. Good luck. Terry
