I am looking at purchasing a TC40D and would like to know if that would be enough horsepower. I have 40 acres of CRP that I would like to mow, a couple of 2 Acre deer food plots that I would like to plant and landscaping to do on my yard. Would a tiller, mower, loader and box blade be able to do this work with this tractor. Also I have a 15 acre field that I am renting out that I may want to plant in alfalfa next yeear. Can I do all of this with the TC40D?
What kind of equipment should I be looking at?


Thanks

You should be fine with a 40 HP tractor. You will like the New Holland. You will probably want to consider a front end loader because they are real handy.

Is the 40HP large enough to use the appropriate implements to da a 15 acre hay feild? A dealer told me that it is a marginal horsepower and should go to a TC45 or TN series? I don't want to keep going up in price though. What do you think?

Thanks

If you can afford it go with the TC45D, I have a TC40D and love the tractor, but if you have any hills to go up and down the extra 5hp would be nice. I find I have to be in low range and back off on the hydro quite a bit when mowing up hill. the 40 and 45 are both the same frame size, just different HP. I aloso don't think you can get a mid PTO with the TC45D, but not sure if that is still the case. I know when I bought mine (2 yrs ago) the mid-PTO wasnt an option on the TC45D. But the tractor size is fine for the work you are wanting to do. ....
