    Jerry:

    Have you moved those flashers to the rops yet. I moved mine to the inside of the rops, and now she just sneers at tree branches.

    s1120,
    From what they told me at the Louisville EXPO.......the TC30 was a new model. It does not have the sloping hood that... say the TC33 does

    <font color=blue>I have not looked at the NH's becouse I do not like the swoopey look of the body work.</font color=blue>

    Once I got on the tractor (a TC33D) that sloping hood was a selling point for me. Not because of the looks (personally, I prefer a more "traditional" look), but because it gives a much better view of what is going on up front.

    Doesn't Deere sell a 990? An economy model much like the 790,but more H.P. and I would think a little larger frame and platform area.

    BigDave, I pulled that picture off the Web. Some dealer site as I recall. It looks like a wagon for one of the little pedal tractors that you can see nearby. I don't know why its under there.

    Maybe, its there to catch tears of joy from NH buyers [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Ya, I can see your point. Does look like it would help when working with something up front. But I do still perfer the more "tractor looking" tractors. But what do I know, all my expearance is with my little Ingersolls.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I shopped for a tractor for about nine months. I really had my mind made that I was going to buy a JD990 or 5105. At first I did not like the appearance of kubota, although I did the maintenance work on 2 of them for Little League for 3 years. One thing I did know about them was that after all the abuse those 2 tractors went through they were tough. The only things I had to replace were burned bearings and blades in mowers , pieces knocked off or broken. Both of those tractors are still running. After a closer inspection of the 990 and the Kubota on the same day I decided on orange because I don't believe the JD compacts are built as well as the larger models. The 5105 was just too pricey for what you get vs Kubota. After taking delivery on an MX5000 I know it was the right choice.
    Just my $.02 and probably not worth that much
