NH lags in cab tractors, not offering cabs for anything but their largest Boomers (but rumor has it that will change). As for engines, I beleive that kubota has the best engines, followed closely by Yanmars (which are still in SOME of the Deere tractors). In terms of reliability (based on Warrenty Claims), Kubota is the best, Deere is second, NH is third (as per 3 multi-brand dealers who I know, but that could be different according to other dealers) Kioti pales compared to Kubota based on the local Cub/Kubota/Case dealer who stopped selling the larger Cub tractors a few years ago because of warrenty claims, those tractors were made by Kioti (Cub 8000 series used to be Kioti DK35, DK40 and DK45 tractors painted in Cub white & yellow, Cub also used Mitsubishi for their 7000 series tractors, but as of this year Cub & Yanmar have entered into a joint agreement to co-brand CUTs as Cub/Yanmars and distributed through Cub dealers).

    I normally try not to be argumentive when I post but when I read statements like the above than I do have to say something. How many hours Bob have you ever spent working in a Kioti cab tractor? I'm not talking about just sitting in one and glancing over the controls but actual work? Does the AC work better in a JD? Are the controls better situated and easier to use? Is there better visibility out the back or side windows? From your experience is the JD cab quieter than the Kioti? Is it easier to enter and exit a JD over a Kioti from your experience of working in both of them? What is it about the rearview mirrors and work lights of the JD that makes it more attractive than the Kioti?

    About the warrenty issue, again you are making some pretty broad statements based on the finding of one dealer who sold Cub Cadet? I could make the same statement about our local McCormick dealer who also sells Cub Cadets and claims they are great tractors and has had very few problems with them.

    Remember people sometimes believe some of the things that we are writing so lets stick with the facts when it comes to making comparisons. You know what everyone says about opinions!!

    usually, only the really big ($100,000+ are built in america)

    Just remember one thing, if you need a battery for your TN; go to your local Ferrari dealership to get your battery. The TN series uses the same battery as the Ferrari 430 Modena and the 612 Scaglietti and older models.

    Trust me...I found that out; although I didn't go to a Ferrari dealership, but I had a hard time finding a battery.

    Why not just buy your battery from your New Holland dealer?

    My TN came with an adapter plate and mounting kit so that it can either the European battery or a standard American battery.

    Remember, when it gets to your place, we want pics. Maybe 1 with both of your tractors side by side so that the size difference is more apparent. Glad that the delivery time is near.
