 TC45D questions

Iím thinking of buying a NH TC45D and I have a few questions. Some which I asked my dealer about and he either didnít know or I just donít believe him.1. My dealer told me there is no draw bar available for this tractor. I would have to purchase an optional one to mount on the 3PH.2. Why is the top speed for the TC40D and 45D 5% slower then for the TC35D. They all are rated at the same RPM. The manual versions all have the same top speed. I was wondering if NH was restricting power to the transmission because of a weakness in the power train? I canít see them gear it down when your buying a larger engine with more torque.3. Why is there no mid-mount PTO on the TC45D? The TC33D and TC40D have them. My dealer couldnít answer this one.Any help will be greatly appreciated. As this is a major purchase for me and I hope to keep this tractor for the next 30 years. Like I did my Case 430CK. ThanksJoe

Find a new dealer the draw bar is standard equipment hooks under the rear end of the tractor and is standard from the factory. he is trying to make extra money from you by not being honest. good luck

Regarding the mid pto option on the 45D, try the link below, or search for "why no mid pto". There was a discussion on this board about it a while back.

Bill,

Thanks for the quick reply. I am new to message boards and did not see the search feature in the upper right hand corner of this one. I did find the thread after I posted my message. Thanks again.

Joe

 TC45D questions

Rick,

Thanks for the advice. My first thought after I read your message is "maybe this guy is just stupid" (if he is reading this lets say ignorant). But after thinking about this I'm not sure which is worse being a crook or being stupid. In either case it's my money. Thanks again.

Joe

 TC45D questions

I was reading about the super steer on the TC45D. It said that the turning radius for FWD SS is 106" and FWD without SS is 110". Am I missing something here? I would think there would be a lot tighter turning radius from this option? Just curious Smile

Billy

 TC45D questions

Re: SS turning radius. The fairly small difference in turning radius does seem unusual. I haven't seen the specs but it wouldn't surprise me.

I know the locks on my Ford steering w/o SS are pretty wide and the tractor can come close to turning with one rear wheel in place. Pivoting around one rear wheel may be the smallest possible turning radius so SS wouldn't shorten up my turning all that much. I think the wheel-bases of many compacts are around 100" and would be pretty hard to turn shorter than the wheel-base.

In all this, I don't know how turning radius is defined--whether it's maximum tractor perimeter, outside front tire track or some other definition. If it's outside tire track, the the definition may be doing SS a disservice. With SS working, the outside tire goes forward which would act to increase a 'measured' radius even if the radius traced by a loader bucket stayed the same. Don't know! Maybe the whole thing is a measurement artifact.

Another possibility is that the main advantage of SS is something other than tighter turning. I know that the steering on my Ford isn't great in very tight turns and I sure don't want to be on the lawn in 4wd. I can easily leave furrows even with turf tires. Maybe SS just works better, but maybe people who have it can say for sure.

Tom, I think you got it right on all points. I have a TC40D with FEL and SS. It does make a difference. For example, today I backed it into the garage into it's less used winter space. That is to say-over a bit more and behind a post between 2 garage doors. With SS I was able to get it centered behind the post within 2 feet of it without using a rear brake on the painted floor or jogging back and forth. It will get out just as easy. That couldn't be done without SS. In the woods I feel that it makes the machine as maneuverable with the FEL attached as a standard steering tractor without the FEL attached. It is a bit hard to describe.I hope that made some sense.
