I am looking to buy a tractor soon and I am not sure wich I need. I will be working 9 acers some heavy brush at first. After I get it cleane up I will mainly just be doing a little dirt work and mowing. I realy like the tc35 but have heard the 40 is much better hp/weight ratio, but I dont raly need one that big. Does the new tc30 have the body style like the 35? would a tc 30 be to small? Thanks for any help.

Cletusb,

A lot depends on the type of ground you are caring for. If you have a lot of trees to mow around, and whole lot of lawn to mow, the smaller tractors are a better choice. But, if your land is hilly or bumpy, with washouts, ditches, etc.. or covered with heavy brush.......a larger tractor will suit your needs much better.

If you have any critters to care for, such as horses or cattle, a larger tractor will handle the haying chores a lot better than will the smaller tractors. This is also true for any fencing chores you will need to do around the place.

For the slight difference in price from the smaller tractors to the larger ones, I'd choose a tractor just a bit on the bigger side.

You'll find that you can't do certain jobs with a smaller tractor, due to the limitations of the 3pt hitch, horsepower ratings, and loader capacities. With 9 acres to keep up, you'll find that having the option to choose the larger implements will probably be useful, if not absolutely necessary.

For example, with a tractor in the 30 horsepower range, you'll be able to handle a much larger amount of dirt with your loader. When tilling, you'll be able to pick from a much larger selection of tillers. The same is true for your choice in mower implements, plows, etc.

If you are moving a lot of railroad ties, telephone poles, gravel, dirt, sand, etc.....you'll find that the smaller tractors struggle to maintain good footing and balance with these projects. It's even more difficult to accomplish these heavy chores with a small tractor if the ground is even the slightest bit uneven.

No matter what, I assure you that you'll find more uses for your tractor than you ever imagined.

Joel ....

I have a TC33D and use it commercially to do grading and brush cutting. It will pull anything 6' wide with ease even in heavy clay. Got to be 4x4 though--2wd is a waste of time and money. If you go with a D/DA you'll get some very nice features such as suspsended seat, tilt/telescope wheel, cruise control, etc. If you have some extra money spring for the Super Steer which makes installing a MMM easier. ....
