 tc24d projects reality check

Hi. I have posted here before and stated that I am buying a tc24d with 12la and backhoe. Well, I had my dealer also deliver a tc29d because I couldn't get it out of my head. I have just 1.25 acres, and all the heavy stuff is pretty much done (I had an excavator in here for a few days). What is left to do is detail/finish landscape work, with creating beds for trees, natural garden areas, kind of a parklike setting.

My question is - has anybody built a winding path through their grounds that a tractor can go back to and maintain/remodel areas like islands with trees, plant some new plantings, maybe later build a gazebo in the far corner of the property, etc.? I have in mind a 4 foot or so wide winding path through the grounds that would allow the tc24d to gain access to all areas in the future, and if I went with the tc29d, the path may have to be 5 feet wide, at which point it starts to look more like a road, not a nice walking path. Am I missing something in this logic? Is it a pipe dream to think I could have a 4 foot path that will allow useful tractor access, or will turning around and actually doing anything with the tractor just screw things up anyway?

If I thought that a 4 foot path would ultimately be pointless for a tractor to work from, I guess I will just go with the tc29d, which really feels like more of what I want from a tractor if I ever get more acreage. Then again, I could stick with the tc24d for what I have to do now, then trade up later....any input? Thanks.

Bobby

from what you have mentioned you would be more suited for the tc24 remember these things hold there value very well. in the future if you need to go bigger you will not lose much money on the smaller tractor as a trade or even less if you sell it your self.

That sounds about right. I do keep my 1710 (similar to a TC29) because there is on-going work that a smaller tractor couldn't manage well. However, the 1710 wouldn't be great for moving because we have a lot of landscaping and out buildings. It would take too long to maneuver and leave too much trimming. I use a riding mower.

A smaller tractor might be generally more busy, but when I need the size and power I really need it and getting contractors to come to the deep country is a little irregular sometimes.

Depending on the land, I'd take care not to create grade with those paths that will cause erosion, because then there'd be lots of maintenance to do.

I'd probably stick with the tc24. With the size property you have and your need for mobility in tight places, I think you would find the tc24 just right. It still has good torque and power, you won't be left wanting very often. Those are nice machines.

The TC29 is a great tractor, but I think you are looking at an elephant gun to shoot rabbits. You will be very pleasantly surprised by the performance of the TC24, it has a compact frame but plenty of power, will turn much tighter, fit into place the TC29 won't go, and will do what you need done just a bit slower than the TC29.
