 Boomer 8N CVT

I see the new Boomer 8N has a CVT tranny. These are normally found on larger tractors. Any input on this subject? I am presuming this is in place of an HST.

 Boomer 8N CVT

I Just read up a bit on the new 8N and yes it looks like the CVT is the only transmission available.
I think most all the makers of high HP farm tractors offer the CVT as an option.
The only ones I'm a bit famillar with are the Deere. I have test driven a 7XXX series with the CVT. I know they are an extra cost option and a quite high dollar option so I do find it interesting that the new 8N is using it.
The basic operating principles of a CVT are really quite simple, but for some reason they charge a lot for simple.

Funny you should mention Deere, they do the same thing w/H.P.
the 4120, 4320, 4520, and the 4720 all have the same engine displacement, 3pt lift capacity and hydraulic pump specs but the only difference is the software to up the H.P. Go figure!
Pretty expensive in my opinion. I will have to drive one of those Boomer 8N's and maybe I will switch from Kubota. Not too fond of the loader and that may be a deal breaker for me.

 Boomer 8N CVT

I know this is an old topic, but I've been all over the internet looking for feedback from owners of the new Boomer 8n, wondering how they like it. So far......nothing.

Does anyone here own one of the new Boomer 8Ns? Care to share your thoughts? I'm interested.

Even if nobody here owns one, I'm wondering if any of our members has heard anything, good or bad.

Thanks

Joel

When I was at the introduction of the 8n tractors one of the things brought up by many dealers was the premium price tag.

When I get something that is a collectors type piece I wouldn't want to have to use it but to park it away.

Art White,

Thanks for your reply.

I've been to youtube, tractorhouse, ironsearch, equipment locator, and even compact tractor review.......nothing.

I found one Boomer 8N with 100 hours on it. The paint on the loader bucket is barely scratched. Seems that folks aren't using this thing for anything but window dressing.

My local New Holland dealer has two of them sitting on his lot. Both have been there for over a year. He took one of them off the lot to run in the city parade last summer. I guess the driver (implement dealer employee) complained about it, saying that the tractor "drives goofy". I didn't get a chance to speak directly with the driver, so I have no idea what he meant by that.

And yes.......the price is going to prevent a number of people from even considering one.

I was just curious. If you hear anything, I'm interested.

Thanks again.

Joel

My dealer had one sitting next to a 40-hp range model--one size up from my TC33D. From what I could tell by appearances and by rummaging through parts diagrams it got a whole lot of new parts, bujt is basically a 40-something hp machine. The seat is kinda cool though--it's a red urethane---thick, like 4 inches thick, but with breathing holes like its much thinner stamped brother of yore. And there's a chrome plated ROPS as optional too.

I've never saw one in the flesh, just pictures, guess I'd forgotten about them. I'm not in the market, but just curious what premium cost is over a like size and like equiped compact.
Frank.

Does the 8N have a mid PTO for a mid mower?
