 TC29D or TC33D - what mower is quot best quot by type

Summery:
I have inherited about 12 acres of land in mid MD. Approximately 3 acres is field brush (need to cut 4 or 5 times a year), 4 is lawn (cut weekly or as needed). I have been looking at the NH – TC29D. The salesmen said that the 60” mid mount (under belly) rear discharge is best. He also said that I most likley should get the TC33D
Dilemma:
1. What is better side or rear discharge? I do want mulching blades.
2. NH has many different types of mowers available, what is the difference? IE: mid-mount mower, flail mower, rear finishing & rotary cutter.
3. The property needs a lot of work and is hilly (12 deg slops), is the TC29D capable or should I look at something smaller or bigger? I do want a loader later and would most likely “play lumber jack” to do some clearing and would like to rent a rear mount chipper as needed. Can this PTO handle a chipper?
I have never needed to purchase a tractor before, but now with my father gone I need some good advice. Thanks! Dave

 TC29D or TC33D - what mower is quot best quot by type

Just a note for mor info: I received a Quote from my local dealer & a TC33D w/72" MMM is $18,900... OUCH! I found a site on e-bay to call this 'Ted" guy at 1-828-464-1200 in NC. He Quoted $15,100 plus $400 delv. to MD (plus no sale tax!) Thats about a $4,000 savings. So I guess this is the way to go. Any thoughts would be welcome... Thanks Dave

 TC29D or TC33D - what mower is quot best quot by type

Dave,

Sounds like the NC dealer is the way to go! I have a 2002 TC29D with 35 hours on it and so far love it. It seems to mow fine and it pushed the 24" of snow around very well. I however am having 2nd thoughts and wonder if I need the 33Hp machine? I was unaware that the 29D is a 25D on steroids, My dealer did not even advise me of the 33D for the extra few hundred $$$, I plan on calling the NC dealer tommorow about a 33D or 35D just to check prices and possibly trade my machine.

If I were you get the 33D with a 60" or 72" rear discharge mower, MMM's seem to work great on hilly land.

-Mike

Make sure you ask "Ted" if he is giving you a New Holland Front End Loader, I saw one of his tractors on Ebay Sporting a Bush Hog Front End Loader.

I have a TC33 with SS, FEL, and 72 inch MMM rear discharge. If you plan on running a read discharge mmm just remember that it will take up all the hp you have if you get into deep or thick grass. I also have a JD 935 with a 72 deck and side discharge and it does alot better in heavy grass. When just tossing the clipping out the side and not having to mulch and move them our the rear you don't need as many pony's.

 TC29D or TC33D - what mower is quot best quot by type

My opinions:
1. I've never used one, but I think most prefer the rear discharge.
2.The mid mount mower (MMM) is the best if finish mowing is your main objective. The NH mowers are notoriously hard to remove and install, so if you don't have any other jobs that require a lot of ground clearance, you could leave it on. There may be issues with fitting a MMM with a front end loader. The flail mower isn't seen a whole lot for residential use; I believe that they are used more frequently commercially. Their drawbacks are high price and (I believe) higher HP requirements. The rear finish mower has the advantage of installing/removing quickly and does an adequate job of finish mowing. I got one because I do some work in the woods and needed the ground clearance. They are usually cheaper to buy than a mid mount. A rotary cutter, or "bush hog" or "brush hog" is for field mowing. The lightweight models can mow down saplings up to 1".
3. The TC33 could probably handle a chipper. I have no experience with it, maybe somebody else will chime in. Check the web and look at HP requirements for PTO chippers. The TC29 or TC33 would be adequate for your needs. The 33 is worth the extra few dollars, though I'd say you're splitting hairs to find any real difference in power. The next size up (TC40-TC45) would be even better unless you're going to be doing mostly finish mowing. Even then if your yard is open it would probably be OK. 12 degree slopes are not excessive for a compact tractor. Just be careful always. They can flip backwards on dry, level ground faster than you can do anything about it, let alone on a slope.

I have a friend that is buying a TC45 from the same dealer in NC, I assume. He found the dealer through e-bay. He doesn't have the tractor yet, but the guy sure talks a good game. We'll see how it goes.
Bill

 TC29D or TC33D - what mower is quot best quot by type

I have a TC33D w/SS & use a First Choice rear discharge mower (3 point pull behind). It seems to work great. I prefer it to a midmount because of all the other things that I use the tractor for & don't have the MMM in my way. The 3 pt mowers are going to save you alot of money (about half). I recommend 3pt & 1st Choice brand for my use...
Flail mowers & rotery cutters are for "brush" cutting, not mowing.
I would suggest the TC33 over the TC29 for the money. The TC35 seems to be a large tractor for mowing...

Thanks to all for the great info. I truly mean that! The local NH dealer (Fredrick, MD) is becoming VERY irate with me. He will not break down his prices for me so that I may compare to others. He says it is a package deal and the price is NOT up for bargin. If I buy from 'Ted' in NC (& save close to $4,000) and then need service... Fredrick NH is the only game in town. This could end up in some interesting problems! I suppose his price is good for the DC area (2nd most expensive in nation to LA). I have some serious thought to consider ($4,000 worth). I now find my self asking "When my father died...I now know why you did'nt get one"! Thanks again Dave
Also I am moving soon and my e-mail will be changing. When I settle in the new place (the old home I grew up in) I will then certainly regester to join the org. The best group of people !

Dave; I do not like "PISSY" salesmen. You are the source of their "BREAD AND BUTTER". Go to another dealer. I had a blue tractor for 13years and tried for a year and a half to deal with blue dealer for a new one and needless to say they wouldn't budge. The green dealer bent over backwards to make a deal. Green has a 3.9% intrest rate now til 3/31, I think.

Me thinks you will be happy to be in the 30-35HP range. More HP is always nice but more HP takes more fuel. I would not go any less than 30 and I sure would not use a 60" cut to mow 4 acres, unless I HAD TOO, because it was given to me or nothing else is avaiable.
