 TC29D

I own 2 1/2 acres of land, all grass with a few trees. I presently own a 17hp Cub Cadet (60 inch deck) that I've had for 12 years. I'm VERY seriously considering getting a TC29D 4wd with the intention of getting the 60 inch or perhaps even the 72 inch rear discharge deck. I've also considered getting the 78 inch snow plow as I have about 150 ft of driveway (paved) to plow. Some people have suggested that that tractor is "overkill" and that I'm paying for things I won't use. My own opinion is that my 17 horse (diesel) Cub is OK if the grass isn't too high but it's a lot of work if the grass is high or a little wet. I just feel the TC29D will probably make short work of it, making it easier on both the machine and me.
My questions:
(1)Am I crazy for considering spending 18K for the above euipment?
(2)At 50 years of age, will I STILL be happy with the performance of this machine when/if I'm 75? Thanks for any input.

Justus:
I bought my new TC29, two months ago. And currently use it for maintaining my three acres. Its equipped with a Woods 1012 loader and a Woods 7500 backhoe. at the same time i bought a bought a new First Choice 72" rear discharge finish mower, from Buy Smart in North Carolina.I use this tractor for mowing and landscaping around the new house. And it works great for this. It used to take 8 to 9 hours to mow the lawn using a 25 hp Craftsman with a 48 inch deck
now I've got it down to around 4 hours. The downside to it, if you can call it that. Is that the phone keeps rnging all the time, with offers of mowing jobs and backhoe work from my neighbors and their freinds. Now I realize alittle extra money and seat time is nice. This is starting to get out of hand. I hadn't intended to start a second career, just to get a nice tool that I can really enjoy. I encourage you to do the same. Just beware of those pesky neighbors.

By the way if your going to be in the market for a good rear discharge 3pt finish mower. Check out the ones by First Choice. I just can't say enough about these fine mowers. They are almost an exact clone of the Landpride FDR25 series, with some improvements added. And at a price considerably cheaper than Landpride,Woods or Befco. Its nice to know that a company can still build a quality product with out over inflating the price.

Justus,
I originally bought my TC29 to mow about 3-1/2 acres of yard; it cut my mowing time in half. Since then, we bought a house with 6 acres of land that needs some mowing and a lot of landscaping/clearing. Couldn't be without the tractor. Get what you want and don't look back.
Bill

I bought my TC33D this past winter. I got the 72" side discharge belly mower and am very happy with it. I mow about 5 to 6 acres with it and snow plow 300' of driveway. After using it I wonder why I didn't get one years ago. I use a 72" Rhino rear blade for the snow. My mowing takes only half the time now. I was using a 20hp Cub Cadet with a 60" deck. The TC has much larger tires and the suspension seat so it rides ALOT better. My body doesn't take a beating after a days worth of mowing.

To TC29 in Wa, Mullens and Treeman, thanks VERY much for the input. I plan on finalizing the deal on the TC29 on Monday. My neighbor continues to tell me it's "overkill", but I don't think so. I told him that one of these days more of the neighbors here will wise up and trade the toy tractors in for a real one. My thanks again. Oh, Mullens, I'm not going to look back.

Justus, So your neighbor thinks your TC29D is overkill? Please keep us posted on the number of times he either borrows your tractor or asks you to do a job for him. I'm surrounded by neighbors/relatives that also think my TC40D and JD X595 tractors and attachments are overkill. But they keep arriving at my door to borrow or ask me to do the job for them. Maybe that is why they have new campers/motorhomes/motorcycles/snowmobiles and I don't. I'm learning to say no.

Justus, be sure to propose a pulling contest with your neighbor after you get the TC. Hehe.

My neighbour also though my tractor was over kill, then he mowed my lawn with his small mower. I can mow ~ 3 acres in 1.5 - 2 hrs (centipee) it takes 6 or more hours with the 48" mower.
Look on the bright side, if worst comes to worst, you can always buy more land.

My neighbor thinks my tractor is a toy, but he farms 1000 acres. You only live once and if you Like the Tc29D as much as I and many othe posters you will have a ball!
