 TC40D vs JD 4400 Comparison

I would appreciate anyone's comments and input on comparision between the TC40D and the JD4400. Other than the former having a bit more HP, it appears that they are about the same. I was close to purchasing the 4400 before I started looking at the NH equipment. The NH seems like a bit better value for the money. My uses included mowing (about 10 acres) and front load usage. I live in the rolling hills of north central WV so I need to be able to handle the slopes.

Plus, would anyone have any information on the operating noise level of the TC40D? The JD literature indicates a level of 87 dB for the 4400. I was wondering how this compares to the 40D level?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

the 4 cyln, engine is much quiter than the 3 clyn jd,
the jd is narrower, harder to get on & off the seat, you sit down in and confined, the 3 pt hitch is worth the extra if you buy a jd, the nh in my opinion was just better and $2500 cheaper, I decide to spend the extra savings on a 45d instead of a 40, it will be worth more in the end, and you can't EVER have enough hp.... especally in hydo....

I don't understand. Why are you comparing the TC40 to the 4400 when you should be comparing it to the 4500? I am a JD fan but still this would make a more (real world) comparison.

 TC40D vs JD 4400 Comparison

Fieldmower - Thanks for the valuable information. Your opinions confirm some of the other views I have heard from NH owners. I agree about the ease of entry and better vision. I do think the JD has an edge on implement attachments. I was very close to purchasing the 4400 as there is a dealer not too far from my home. Then I came across the NH website and started reading up on the NH. I was trying to get a better understanding of the price differential between the two machines.

Dave - This is not a side - by - side comparison. As indicated, I was close to the 4400 when I heard about NH. Since then, I have found a local dealer that has a used TC40D for sale and I just wanted some input on that. I agree that the HP are different but would appreciate your comments on other differences, especially from a JD owner perspective

Thanks again
Mountaineer

 TC40D vs JD 4400 Comparison

Please, let me correct my self, I was determined to buy JD 4400, GREEN. No other brand, but when i had both tractors side by side, NH Blue was better, in almost everything/everywhere. NOW, when the new JD 4410 come out, all bets are off. JD will then catch up, but currently you will not go wrong with the TC45D

And another thing, the two speed shift button on the HN was super!! I was mowing with a flail mower, cruise control on, when i came to make a turn, just flip switch to low range, tractor slows 30% or more, make turn or navagiate trees, and flip switch to high and resume speed, all without touching the foot pedals... That feature alone was SUPER neat, and Very Very useful... ( convinced my brother who also realized GREEN wasnt up to NH on creature comforts ) Granted a farmer who is going to put 1000 hours a year may have a different opinion, but my use of under 100 per year, i want the convience..... fieldmower, i mow 10 acres with a flail, you should consider this also...

Steve,
the TC35D, TC40D and TC45D are all the same tractor frame/size, but different engines... pumps....

so now, you being the JD expert, show me the BIG advantages of the JD over the NH TC35-40-45D tractors..
use any model of JD you wish.....
you have the floor....

Well Steve, I think if one is just buying an oversized Lawnmower ones priorities are different.

 TC40D vs JD 4400 Comparison

Just a minute as I remove the treble hook....Ok let's dance.

If I am being allowed to use any model of John Deere I wish to
compare to a nh tc40d, It would not be one which is 428lbs. lighter
but one which is 122lbs. heavier. Nor would I use a 4400 which holds
2 gallons less of fuel but a 4500 which holds 1/2 gallon less.

R-4 front tire size ...4" diameter difference??? Aw shucks that's
practically the same.

nh tc40d=121.7 c.i.d. 4 banger
JD4500=121.7 C.I.D. 4 Banger
hhmmmm...

Ah hah! Pumps you say? 4400 has a 8.6gpm main, 4500 has a 9.9 and
guess what?........nh tc40d has a 9.8gpm main.

Confined in the 4400? No wonder! It's a smaller tractor!

This Information was gathered by visiting the respective company's
internet sites.

Information is knowledge...knowledge is the opposite of
ignorance.

Part of my check went to Moline, Illinois, USA.
Part of your check went to where?....Is that even a country?

We are in this chat room because we have the First Amendment.
We also have the freedom to buy what ever tractor we want.

At this time in our great country's history we do not need
dissesion amongst the ranks. I am willing (after your reply)
to call a truce. Steve
