 New Holland Boomer 3050 2010 Model

I bought a 2010 Boomer 3050 with the CVT (HST is no longer used)and there are precious few user comments on the internet. It's transmission is identical to the CVT used in the 8N. You can shift between forward and reverse on the fly, and the tractor will slow down and execute. What I don't like is the computer deciding to protect the transmission; that is, it defaults on its own into neutral when it senses "excessive drive line torque". That has happened to me going up a hill and the dealer's only "fix" is to have the tractor in cruise going up or down a hill. No cruise set, be ready to hit the brakes or enjoy the thrill of a backward ride.

Also, I'm 5'8" and the seat just can't be moved forward enough or lowered enough for me to solidly hit the brake pedals. The dealer has offered to cut the pedals and weld extensions on but I'm determined to make this work.

The park brake light will indicate that it's set, when it really isn't so it's best to pump the brake pedals as you set the brake...but I've learned NOT to park on an incline.

Unlike a geared transmission, the CVT will ALWAYS automatically go into neutral when the engine is off as it is totally hydraulic. So, not only can you get no help if the park brake is really not fully set, but you can't get any transmission help to hold the tractor in place.

The Operator's Manual was just revised as part of a software upgrade but it still is rather lame beyond identifying the controls, lubrication schedule, and specs. The dealer is THE source of tips and fixes for you as you can't contact New Holland directly. It comes with a full 2 year warranty and it's a very liberal warranty but does not include transportation charges to/from the dealer.

 New Holland Boomer 3050 2010 Model

Blondie,

Thank you for stopping by.

You're one of the first to report on the actual performance of the new CVT transmission.

I often stop by a website called, "CompactTractorReview.com". It's interesting to read the comments written by actual owners and/or users of these new tractors. There doesn't seem to be anything there regarding the 3050 New Holland. You might want to stop in and leave a note for those who are shopping around.

Somewhere I read that the Boomer tractors have an inclined seat rail, which allows the user to move the seat forward or back.

For taller people, the seat rises as it goes toward the rear of the tractor, allowing for more leg room.

For shorter people, the seat moves foward and goes lower at the same time, due to the inclined rail system.

Maybe the seat doesn't have much travel distance? Are the seat rails too short, providing little room for adjustment?

Thanks again for the feedback.

Joel

The seat incline is really not that significant, and the seat assembly is on a platform with the front end of the rails already close to the end of the platform. The dealer's shop foreman had several mechanics look to see if there was something they could alter. Unfortunately, there isn't, and these guys are really resourceful.

Just noticed that NewHolland.com has a feedback link under contact us/feedback. I'll email them just in case they have an idea, but I've heard that tractor engineers, regardless of manufacturer, don't strive for product improvement to the extent that auto and truck engineers do. As an industry, I suspect they all believe in the old Soviet motto "Better is the enemy of good enough."
