I think I have decided against the tc33d and up it to either the TC35 or the TC40. The 3pt lift cap. is almost 700# more, do you think this will come in handy? IS there a big difference between the 3cyl. TC35 and the 4cyl. TC40?

Lift capacity is handy but it is possible to have too big a tractor. A heavy tractor will cause more turf damage and leave ruts in the lawn if you use it to mow and big tractors can't negotiate as well in the woods or other tight areas as smaller machines. What do you need to do with your new machine?

I have 160 acres in Northern Wis. I plan on moving there in less than 5 years. I have a 500' drive. Also I food plot around 15 acres for deer and birds. I have 2 1/2 miles snowmobile trail to mow along with keeping the gravel on the drive and level. Any other (honey-do's) also.
I have a 8N that is going up for sale, its giving me more trouble on weekends than its worth lately, so I decided to upgrade especially since I work for Case/New Holland, I get a heck of a discount! Thank you for your responses!
I am very new to cut's so I have alot to learn and ask before I buy this month.

It certainly sounds like you have the needs to justify the larger machine. With that kind of mowing you'd probably want a big rotary cutter, which would require more hp. Also, the infinite ranges and ease of use of the hst transmission would make much of your work easier. I found the TC series to be very comfortable so you'd be in good shape there with the long hours you'd be putting in.

Another thought. Not sure if the NH compacts have an available cab or if you've considered one but in your part of the country with the big property you have to manage it might be a good idea. If you decide against a cab now it might make sense to get a machine that can be upgraded with a factory cab in the future.

You are making my decision easier for me. So you think the 40 would be the better choice? Any comments on the difference between the 3cyl. and 4?
The cab would be nice, I hit a ground hornets nest last summer while roto tilling with a skidsteer, Thank god I had a cab, unreal how upset they get when you till their nest up! Laughing out loud. A cab is out of my budget though. How bid of a disk/harrow can these cuts pull? My soil is heavy and rocky even after picking for days.
How did you tip over your tractor? Hope you did not get hurt?

When you say your, "R4's have lousy traction in clay, what do you mean by R4's?

I'm not intimately familiar with the NH product line, but I think generally 4-cyls are a bit smoother than 3-cyls and they're all pretty good these days. To confuse things a bit, some guys have a theory that the best tractor in any given frame size is the one with the largest engine. If you agree with this theory the TC-45 would be the tractor for you. There are folks here who have NH tractors and hopefully they will chime in here.

Not sure about the disk/harrow size you would be able to pull. Probably the thing to do is select your tractor then get the biggest disk that will comfortably fit within the available hp.

There are several different tires available on most CUTs, R1s have the ag style chevron treads, R3s are turf tires, and R4s are industrial style. R4s are sort of a compromise between turfs and ags, they get better traction in mud than turfs but don't do as much turf damage as ag tires. Like most compromises IMHO they don't do anything real well though. They have very stiff sidewalls that hurt traction, the tread style isn't self-cleaning so they can clog easily in sticky soil, and the lugs are fairly shallow so they don't really dig in well. I'd guess you'd want the R1s for maximum traction in soft soil, but they will leave some tracks.

Which brings me to my rollover.

I was out box-scraping an area I had just stumped and the clay soil was soft and plugged the R4 treads. No matter which way I turned I was sliding into a depression, so I turned into it and drove down the hill rather than slide down sideways. Then I couldn't back up due to lack of traction so I had to do some manual shovel-work and layed down a bunch of fir branches to improve traction. When I backed up the hill the soil at the left edge gave way and the tractor slowly tipped over. I was lucky 'cause the loader bracket contacted a tree and slowly pushed the tree over, cushioning the tractor on the ride down. No harm done to me or the tractor but it convinced me that seatbelts and ROPS are a GREAT idea!

I went through the same thing years ago! I went with the TC40D with wheel weights, R4's and loader. The extra weight has been a great advantage! I love this tractor! The only thing I would do differently is to go with the 45 hp. You will not be dissapointed!

Sorry it took so long to get back here I just signed up as a member.
WOW some story. Looks like you have a real nice place too! Good luck on your retaining wall. You have any recomendations on brush hogs?
Dan G. How ya doin? Nice to meet you.
So you have a tc 40? I keep raising the horse power in the tractor that I plan on buying. I went out back at work today to look at the TC33d and it looks real small, just dont look like it weighs enough for some of the work I think I will use mine for so I decided to go up to the 35.
Then when looking at the price difference I decided to up to the 40 and go with the manual with shuttle shift to keep the cost down, I really dont think I want a syncronized trani, kinda like having alittle more snort on the ground, (imo) but like I said I have no experiance with these rigs. I do want to stay married and buy this though and right now I have her blessings so I dont think I should push it too much.
I would like to use the brush mower to cut my fields for awhile, since most of the fields are in annuals and the ones that are in clover I dont harvest anyway. Untill I buy a mower for hay is there any recomendations on what brush hog you would use with a TC40? Also I own a 7'blade that I used on my ford 8n, would that work on the new tractor for grading my driveway? One more (sorry) If I opt for a loader (later) will there be any added expense over getting it put on right now at time of purchase?
Thanks to all of you very much for you efforts here, I am a fast learner, Laughing out loud
