Hi. New to this site, although I have been trying to read-up on the past postings. I am in the process of buying my first tractor. I have been looking at the Cub Cadet/Yanmar Ex3200 and the New Holland 2030 (aka T2210, TC31DA). The postings on the Ex3200 seemed to have stopped in early January 2009. I am curious to know how that tractor has been doing in the field since it is still relatively new to market. I would get FEL and brush hog and front blade (for snow) as a starting point.

I have 31 acres on which we will keep 2-4 horses, 10-15 acres will be pasture, 10-15 acreas are wooded or boundary zones with road or stream, 1-2 acres around the house-barn-garage-garden-pond. Jobs for the tractor would include manure management (combination of compost turning and spreading), snow removal on a long drive, cutting pastures 3 or so times a year, tilling garden, poss. running generator in event of power outage (I am sure I am missing something!).

1 Do you think a 30-32 hp tractor is appropriate? The lay of the land is both flat and hilly. (I would get 4WD) I have also looked at the New Holland 3040--which comes with a significantly higher price tag. I was planning to purchase a lawn/garden tractor to do the half acre of grass around the house that we do not turn into pasture or garden--which adds its own expense.
2 I have test driven all three tractors; the CabCadet/Yanmar was remarkably quieter and smoother at start up and once warmed. Seems to be more machanical vs. electronic in its switches (e.g. cruise control). The hydralics are less, however, compared to the NewHolland 2030.
Any thoughts, comments, guidance? If there is more information posted on this site that answers these questions, please direct me there. THANKS!!!

Welcome to the board, we'll try our best to help out.
I have to agree in your desire for mechanical over electronic even tho I have a ten year old Deere 4310 loaded with electronic gizmos, but so far so good.
I think size wise you are about right with mid thirtys horse power and the attachments you mwention. by far the nmost used attachment you will have is the FEL and having one with a quick tach bucket is a real plus to use pallet forks, different size buckets, etc.
Mid mount mowers for your size tractor are not only expensive but a pain to mount and dismount, with a bit of shopping around you will find lots of rider mowers with lots of life left for less than a mid mowwer.
I have no experience with any of the brands you mention, but as has been said many times here, a good reliable local dealer in any of the brands you mentiion makes you tractor ownership a lot more pleasant. Frank.

Cub Cadet has some good pricing right now on the I1050's and you might be able to put a nice package together with your dealer.

Thanks so far for the feedback--confirmation that we are not way off target. We have been working with a local, reputable dealer who carries both the Cub Cadet-Yanmar Ex3200 and the New Holland 2030 (T2210).

Anyone have any experience--good or bad--with the CC-Y Ex3200? I have read about electrical problems with the New Holland (esp. with all safety switches). I like the 3-point hitch on the 2030(T2210), seems like it would be easier to attach implements; both have a quick-release FEL. More importantly, how does the engine and transmission wear over time? Anyone with over 2000 hours?

Abbas;
Most all loaders that are a brand match, like New Holland loader on a New Holand tractor as an example have a quhiuck moubnt system for the entire loader. What I meant was the bucket it's self being quick attach from the loader frame. Some of the older loaders required removing hinge pins disconnecting cylinder rods, etc. you don't want that.
Other people here who use compacts on a commercial basis can tell you more about their conditon at 2000 hours. On a homeowner basis you will be a real old man before you get to that many hours. I've got about 600 hours on my ten year old 4310 if that is any indication.

If you follow the owners manual with any tractor, use the filters and fluids they recommend and just keep a watch on air filters, fluid levels, etc., there won't be enough wear at 200 hous to even measure. Kinda like the ten thousand mile mark on a new car, it's still new.

Regarding the hours--an old post by kleinchris (TX) had made a comment back in 11-17-2007 regarding hitting the 200 hour mark would be a telling point for the "new" tractor. On the same thread, Nolat1114 (northcentral PA) was operating a CC-Y ex3200 at the time. The thread ended with no further "updates" in the late summer or fall of 2007.

In any event...any comments about the differences in hydralics between the Ex3200 (total 9.9gpm-implements 5.6; steering 4.3) vs. the NH T2210 (2030) (total 12.3gmp-7.2;5.1). Certainly, I will be able to lift more, etc; how perceptable will that be? Will I regret not having the extra power if I get the Ex3200? Or is it a wash on this size tractor?

After the blizzards, we've had we are looking at upgrading our Kubota BX2230 which has been super reliable to a CC EX3200. The best price we've been able to find is $18.7K with belly mower and FEL.

I called many dealers to find out their prices- and was quoted within $1K by all. Is this a reasonable deal or are the dealers taking advantage of the increased demand?
