    Default TC33 or TC35

    I am trying to figure out whether I should buy a New Holland tc33 or a tc35. It will be used for wildlife habitat management activities. We would be pulling a 6 foot disc (3 point) and a 5 foot john deere press drill (its fairly heavy). There is some soft sand and it can get a little wet at times. The discing is between planted trees. We have anywhere from 5 to 20 acres of trees to maintain at any given time. The press drill is used to put in food plots. We plant about 20 - 25 acres of these. Some are very small half acre plots in tight spaces and some are as large as 5 or 6 acres. I am concerned that the tc33 will not be heavy enough. I think it will have plenty of horsepower, but I just don't want to buy more tractor than I need. I would also not be opposed to looking at a different brand of tractor. We have used my uncle's John Deere 4410 and that seems to work fine, but based on the information I read, the 4410 is about 500 pounds heavier than the tc 33 and about 300 pounds lighter than the tc35.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    The work you are doing and implements rates the heavier TC35.

    Go with the TC 35. I have used a TC 33 a lot, and I own a TC 35. You will need the extra weight.

    Sounds like size may be a factor for you. If you prefer the size of the TC33, you could ballast it to get it heavy enough to do the work needed. I have a Mahindra 3215 and it is about the same size as the TC33. I have it ballasted to right around 5000lbs. That weight includes the loader and box blade.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I think lift capacity(both 3 point and FEL) is the critical comparison. I am constantly at the lift limits(both front and back) of my TC45. If the drill is a 3point, that may be an issue that settles it.

    It sounds likme the way to go is the TC35. Yes, I do have some smaller areas I need to get into, but I suppose I can always use an ATV for those areas. I think I will regret not getting the bigger tractor since the larger areas will be 95% of the work. Thanks for the help!

    Ted if you need some extra dollars for the TC35, I'd pay $1 just to hear your last name pronounced.

    Seriously, to TBN. We hope you'll come back to TBN often and show us your progess. We like photos of tractors and people doing stuff with them.

    I can do that! I take lots of pictures of the work we do.

    Also, pronunciation is Warziniak. Of course that is the very "Americanized" version. The Polish pronunciation throws everyone off.

    You didn't mention the TC40 for comparison. A few more HP, about 50 lbs heavier, a half quart more in the cooling system, maybe a pint more oil in the crankcase, 130 lbs greater 3-pt lift capacity but best of all a four cylinder engine. Based on my 2002 operator's manual.
