    There are some grumblings that we may end up going back to Shibaura completely. Apparently LS is not willing to make the improvements to the product that CNH is asking for.

    Agreed. I have one of my own, a 1998 vintage.

    Are the new Shibaura 3040, 3045 and 3050 Boomer Cab models out yet or on the dealers lots? If so, how are the new CVT2 transmission in them? Did the NH make the tractors to electronically control the engine and transmission when the "go pedal" to pushed? Thanks!

    As I understand, I don't think the final touches are done on the CVT2 yet.

    Any new news on the newer Boomer Cab models with the CVT2? Did they come out yet and did anyone test one yet? Did they link the CVT2 tranny to the engine like they were suppose to? My neighbor is still looking for one. Any new information would be much appreciated. Also, is NH still going to sell LS Boomer models or are they going to go back to the Shibaura for all the CUT models? Thanks!

    We had one delevered to the store a couple weeks back. I haven't driven it but one of the other guys liked it better than the gen 1 version.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I also hear the park brake will actually hold the tractor on a hill or rollback truck.

    I have a 99 TC33d and 2003 (I think) MC35 (35 hp diesel front deck commercial mower). They are still going strong, just like the day I got them. Are these Shibaura tractors?? TIA
