    I have not yet looked at the New Hollands. I know them fairly well as we have used them for some time, but whehe NH got away from the TN line to the current lines they priced theirself out of the market. The price went up enough to where many of our New Holland dealers went to other lines. As for guys like me they started looking at deere because they held their value better than NH.

    I don't know about that. It would not hurt to take a look at them.

    If your so in love with NH, why haven't you looked at the company that's under the hood. LS tractors made many NH and fords. Everyone that has one says its been their best investment.
    Hopefully Friday I get to say the same... My P701C arrives on Friday and from everything I've read and heard... I was in live before I put the money down. Don't hurt to look at more options.
    Just my $0.02

    Default Re: Deere folks give me some buying advise please

    After a year of shopping I ended up buying a 5105M with the deluxe cab. I looked very seriously at a Farmall 95 but the wet clutch Power Reverser on the deere was the deciding factor over the dry clutch 95. I then compared the "M" with the "E Limited" side by side. Huge difference in the two tractors. The "M" is a much beefer tractor. I also liked the extra weight the 5105M had over the other tractors. The Deere dealership is closer and has been very good. I am a cow/calf producer and I use mine to cut and bale hay and feed cows. No field tillage work to speak of. I sometimes feed my cows on a concrete pad which is a pretty tight manuever around between the bale feeders, fence and crowding chute. Does a great job!!

    If money isnt an option, as MWRR stated the M series is a great tractor. I couldn't, so stayed in the E series. Hoping to get mine in 4 weeks!

    Thanks! I know about the power reverser which is basically a hydro shuttle shift. But what does a wet clutch do for you?

    That's why I suggested the JD 5M series. It will only be slightly larger than your TN95. Very nimble machine. Tight turning radius.
