From all I hear the DX34 has been a great tractor, I really like the red and when you guys post pictures with snow in the background they look that much sharper. My brother has the New Holland sister to your tractor for about 5 or 6 years now, he is still very happy with it. No problems except his has supersteer and a mmm and he says it tears up the lawn in sharp turns, he likes the supersteer for loader work but not for mowing. Funny thing is I've heard just the opposite from others. Oops, there I go leaning to the New Holland site. On a lighter note I own a Case and am pleased with it for the most part.
