It should be plenty. I have TC33D (hydrostat and Super Steer) and I use it commercially to pull a 5' brushhog, 6' box scraper. I don't need a loader for it (I have other equipment for that)

What did you mean about the 3-point hitch? All modern tractors come with 3-pt hitches.

As far as loader work or even grass cutting, opt for the hydro drive TC, or better go with the "D" or "DA" which you get the hydro, a suspension seat, cruise/speed control, and a telescoping/tilting steering wheel among other goodies. ....

Sure, it should be able to do all that. I have a TC30. Mowed 15 or so acres, tilled two acres and enjoyed doing it. It will take a little time cutting 10 acres with 5 ft. But such is done by many. Just know that it will take most of the day going into it. The price must be about right. I was shown such a TC29 before I went with the 30. Its price here in GA was close to yours. ....

I love my TC29 (650 trouble-free hours), but if I was mowing 10 acres and tilling 1, I'd want a bigger tractor. It will handle a 60" tiller and 5' Bush Hog OK, but the going can be slow.

If I didn't use my 29 to mow the yard, I'd want something the size/hp of the TC40.

Good luck,
Bill ....

Bigger doesn't always mean quicker when it comes to rototilling mowing. You can only mow or till only so fast anyway. Then there's the added cost of wider/bigger implements going from 5' to 6'. I can mow in 3rd-range high with no problems. ....

I'd agree that bigger doesn't ALWAYS mean quicker. But in my experience it sometimes does.

I rough mow usually with an old MF135 diesel (35 hp). It will run rings around my TC29 with a 5' brush hog. So would the 801 series Ford tractor that we used up until last year. Now if you're just cutting thin grass, or it isn't too high, the TC does fine. Let it get thick and about knee high, and you're low gear, middle range or high gear, low range.

Last year I mowed side by side with a TC40 and MF135. All of us had 5' brush hogs. I was the only one that had to gear down to go through the tough places. The other guys pulled right through. (The MF labored the least, by the way).

For tilling, I've only been using the TC two years. But several times I've had to go to low-low to keep from lugging the engine. I know that tilling speed is not limited solely by engine power, but sometimes it is. In my soil, where I garden, more power would help.

For me the smaller tractor is better for several reasons. It fits on my trailer, in my barn, and is small enough to finish mow with. But if I didn't have to trailer it, and didn't finish mow with it, I'd want something bigger.

Good luck,
Bill ....
