QUESTION FOR YOU NH EXPERTS OUT THERE, I'M LOOKING TO PURCHASE ONE OF THE ABOVE TRACTORS THIS FALL. I WOULD BE REMOVING FIREWOOD FROM MY PROPERTY, MAPLE SUGARING, MOWING, LANDSCAPING AND SNOW REMOVAL. I LIKE HORSEPOWER BUT WONDERING WHICH MODEL TO PURCHASE? I RELIAZE THE TC48 OFFERS THE BIGGER LOADER BUT PACKAGE IS ABOUT 4K MORE THAN THE TC40. WITH THE SMALLER LOADER (16L) SHOULD I STAY WITH THE 40 OR GO TO THE 45? OR SHOULD I ABSOLUTELY GO FOR THE 48 WHEN I HAVE THE CABBAGE?? I USUALLY FEEL BIGGER IS BETTER. CAN SOMEONE STRAIGHTEN ME OUT? THANKS

I grew up farming, I have more hours on a gear drive tractor than a hydo by far, but to me if it is not a hydo CUT, it does not exist. Hydro is like 4x4, it can make a smaller HP more effective, in MOST INSTANCES, but not all. All the models you are considering are large frame compacts, so more HP may be better until the hydro option drops out. Demo them and see for yourself. ....

I own a TC35D, thought about a TC33D at 1st, I wish I had gone for the TC45D, I looked at the 48 this year, it is not the same as a TC45D.
I have put over 900 hours on the 35 in the 1st and 2nd seasons, good machine. ....

Save enough for some impliments you need. There is not that much difference in the 3 although I too would like more hp although I have not had a need for moe yet. I have a tc40. No hydro. You know what they say you wont miss it untill youve had it and you dont miss what you never had. Depending on what your doing with the loader I see no reason for the larger tractor unless your worried about its lifting capacity? If money is a concern I think $4K is a lot of money for the rise in HP if you dont really need it. Go as large as you can realistically afford and still be able to buy some toys for the rig.
I have a few pics of my tc 40 on line here, so far I am real happy with it. ....
