Well, I think I've made up my mind on a TC35D with a FEL but, I don't know whether to opt for the SuperSteer or not. Are there any advantages/disadvantages to this option other than the obvious tighter turning radius? Is it worth the additional $900.00 or is it just a matter of preference? While on the subject, does anyone know of any differences coming on the new (04) TC35-45 and is it worth the wait or not?
-Thanks

From my shopping days I would have spent the $900 for supersteer in a second. It does have some minimal downsides though. For one, when you turn the loader moves very slightly in the opposite direction of the turn as the front axle articulates - this MAY be a problem if you are in very tight quarters with a loader installed. The steering also didn't seem to have quite as good a feel as tractors without SS, but heck this ain't a sports car.

I do not own one of theese so it is little more than my humble opinion. I did look/drive and seriously consider the SS. The trouble is not the price but all the extra moveing parts. If you are just mowing the lawn and light open work I would definately opt for it. If you are going to the woods or doing FEL work I would pass on it. If you are trailering it there is extra weight, which can be either bad or good depending on your needs. Dave

The extra complexity of SS is a valid concern, but in my year or so of reading this and other boards I can't recall a single instance of someone having any problems with it. Of course I suffer from CRS like a lot of others Smile

Thats True I have heard nothing but good from those who have it but most who buy SS primarily mow. I have not heard from or seen a post where any one is useing it in the woods in 4wd. Like all tractor choices its just relative to your use and needs. Dave

From what I hear, it isn't all that complex although there are more moving parts. The sensa-track is controlled not electronically but manually with a torsion bar or you can shift into 4X4 full time.

Loaders shift slightly with steering position on non-SS tractors also. A FEL is not like a rear steering fork lift in that regard, but is more versatile in many situations. I use pallet forks on my loader most of the time to move equipment. The shift is noticable but managable.

SS tractors get longer in tight turns because the "outside" steering wheel will go significantly forward as the axle swings in that direction.

SS tractors require the 17LA loader that can accomodate the larger movements of the front axle position.

Do I have SS? No Would I buy it? Yes if I was doing mostly mowing and wanted to make minimal marks on the lawn. I would also combine that SS purchase with Turf tires. (I don't mow with my tractor. I use independent steering brakes and can pivot on a locked rear wheel.)

SS is a must! I've had my TC33d 2 years and am sold on the SS.

A voice from the other side here. The super steer on the NH is needed for manuverability. Without it they are not up with the rest of the market for steering. The time that it takes to wear those extra pivots out is a variable and the loader will help to do it faster from the extra load.

Does anyone know of, or have heard of any failures of the supersteer or sensitrack systems, and under what conditions did they occur? The local dealer seems to be a pretty decent guy to deal with and he swears by the supersteer and says he will give it to me at his cost. He has both variations in stock so either one would be available. Any info will be greatly appreciated as I plan to purchase within the next week or two.
-Thanks
