 need help selecting a tractor

I am selecting a tractor for my business in Southeast, Alaska. We provide remote landscaping, trail building, and material delivery to islands with a small landing craft. I need a tractor that can pull a small dumping trailer for trail work, move small piles of crushed rock and dirt with a loader, and turn around in very tight places. we are going from beach to wooded areas and will have to deal with some rocky places. We use a mini excavator to prepare the trails and beach landing sites the two machines will work together. In winter we have several snowfalls in excess of 24 inches and need to run a front mount blower. I have been considering a NH TC29 and an Antonio Carraro. Any advice will be appreciated this will be my first tractor. (skidsteers tear up the ground to much in this country).

From what I have seen and driven, the TC29 or the TC33 would be ideal for what you are looking for. I would recomend the Deluxe version of either one (if you dont need the extra HP the 29 would be the way to go) The 20deg. swivel of the standard seat on the deluxe as well as Suppersteer will be life and neck savers in your line of work. The controles of the 7308 loader bucket are very convieniently located. Good Luck. Rick

Thanks for the response
I have found a new TC29D with loader and standard steering for $16900.00. Is this a fair price. They also quoted for an Erskin front mount snow blower $4000. Is this a good setup?

I've been pricing the same thing and the best I've found is $16500 for the TC29D and loader. Haven't looked at a snowblower.

I'm not sure if 'standard steering' means no power steering or no super steer. Power steering is very good if a lot of loader work is done. Super steer is good for very tight maneuvering. From the description it sounds like both features might be desirable. Of course, buyers in the used market can't always choose their features. I'm guessing that the reason for making tight turns is to turn around on trails. Most tractors turn pretty tight, but it might be a good idea to verify that the turning radius of any tractor considered is adequate to need.

If the trails are fairly long, you might want to think about the width of trails compared to blower width. For example, if a trail is 6' wide then a 6' blower would clear it in one pass but a 5' blower would require two passes and nearly double the time. Time and the number of passes could be a serious issue depending on the length of trails. It might be a good idea to roughly estimate the time required for clearing, given the tractor, blower width and ground speed to make sure it's acceptable. Blowers take time since most operate at maybe 2 - 3 mph ground speed and 1 or less in heavy snows.

If a time estimate seems excessive and two passes are required for clearing, then a more powerful tractor that could run a wider blower may be a better choice. However, more power won't appreciably increase the ground speed the tractor can work at. Ground speed is limited by how much snow the blower will blow, which is determined by fan diameter and rpm rather than pto hp for a 2-stage type . Too a ground speed and snow just piles up ahead of the blower.

Snows of 2' are going to be fairly heavy loads for most blowers so I wouldn't anticipate very high ground speeds. If the tractor has a gear TX, it would be good to make sure the lowest gear will go slow enough at pto rpm. Blowers barely blow at all much below pto rpm.
