    Re: Mahindra 3535 or the 4035 or another

    Tell your dealer to call Mahindra. There is a fix for the PTO problem. The first models out were missing the accumulator assembly that slows down the PTO engagement. Without it the PTO starts so fast...

    "And price ended up only being 1400 more for the addition hp which really there was not much difference in the capcity."

    Re: Comparing Hydraulics?

    Looking over the spec sheet between the 433 and the 4035 I cant see that much difference. It is a give and take. TYM has a little more hp, Mahindra has more 3 point capacity, TYM has a creeper range...

    Re: Should I be nervous?

    A dealer usually has the option to retain a parts account, sometimes it is only on a cash basis. But, if the dealer during the buyback asks to have all of his parts inventory bought back by the MFG...

    Re: New SC2450 TLB Cub Cadet Yanmar!

    I agree, I think that dealer needs a different calculator. $16200 even with free shipping and any early order incentive is under dealer cost. Maybe I should be buying from him vs Cub.

    Re: TYM T700 Out of Production!

    I have to agree, I have both the T700 and the 7520 Mahindra. They are used to farm a couple hundred acres of round bales. The TYM was fine until I used the 7520. With my 8' Howard tiller the T700 was...

    I am a big fan of front mounted implements and we currently have an Agrofarm 100 with front hitch and PTO. Just remember that the front PTO is 1000 rpm only.

    Re: Deutz Tractors?

    What are you looking to run off the front? Just remember front PTO hp is half of the rear. The Frutteto version (fruit) is still going to be quite a bit narrower than a field version, are you using...
