    Default weight of tractor

    I live in sunny Florida where it gets very wet & muddy in the summer (which causes the grass to grow alot).I am looking for a 30=/- hp CUT.Would a tc30 make less tracks than a 3130 or would they both sink the same?

    Depends a lot on the tires. Wider flotation type of tires sink less.

    Depending on your conditions, weight is good. I am surprised at how little I sink even when I have my loader and weights on (I have R4s inflated near minimum recommendations with filled rears).

    If you are floating on muddy soil and towing something heavy, you are going to spin. However, if you are TOO heavy you are going to sink to your axles and go nowhere. Do you live in an area where you can see what other tractor owners do? Do you have enough confidence in your dealer to follow his recommendations?

    The TC30 and the 3130 are VERY different tractors. We would need more info about your land and what you intend to do with your tractor to make more specific recommendations.

    The L3130 wieghs #3305 which is aprox 1000lbs more than the TC30. The TC30 is a smaller framed tractor.
