    Default What'cha think?

    I got a quote on a new TC40, cab model. $22,000
    4wd, hst, r4 tires

    Dealer said he would be getting one in, in September. Price sounds good to me. What do you think?

    That sounds good to me. That puts the cab option at about $2500 as a guesstimate.

    It don't include FEL. It does include heat and a/c. I don't have any need for a FEL. I have 11 flat acres to keep mowed. The a/c cab is what I really need. haha IT'S HOT!!

    You know your needs, but I'd bet you would find use for a loader if you had one. No one I know of that has owned one would want to be without. The things are kind of like pick-ups in that.

    What kind of mowing are you talking about, lawn, brush, pasture? Bush hog, RFM, MMM?

    Mostly finish mowing. I have a 6' rhino finishing mower and a 5' rotary mower. There are 22 pecan trees and a few oaks on my land. There is a small 7 acre field just down the road, that I cut with the rotary mower. Nothing to thick. Dealer gave me a "ballpark" price on the FEL...$5,500. I've decided to go ahead with the TC45 with the cab. Should be here around the end of September - 1st of October. Total price..$23,600. If I went with the loader...$29,100. That's just to steep for me. I can always get one later if the need arises.
    I see where alot of y'all have the FEL. And I'm not saying that they aren't handy. I just can't find a use for it on my property.

    I agree with most above. Unless all you plan on doing is pulling wagons, I can't imagine a tractor with out a loader.
    I do have one "antique show tractor" without a loader, but anyone that works gets a loader.
    Even mowing I use the loader to "probe" for what I might hit first. Of course if finish mowing is all you're going to do I suppose no loader is ok. Just remember a loader makes a great wheel barrow.

    No doubt it would be nice to have. However, I have a 96' 1720 that I bought new. It's been almost 11 years now and there has only been a few times a FEL would've been handy. I have a Polaris Ranger that I drive around and pick up limbs and such before I mow. Take a look....not much goin' on here. haha
