    Re: TC34DA Opinions

    Hope this reply is not too late to be of some value. I bought an early TC34, had it over 3 years now. Great tractor. No regrets. No Supersteer and don't miss it.

    Re: New Battery for TC33DA

    I went with the Optima for my TC34 - should be identical to your application. My receipt shows it as a Group 51R Yellow Top. The R denotes reverse terminal locations. It fit perfectly - no tight...

    Re: NH T1520 Accessories

    I installed 2 of the worklights on my TC34 and love them. Great for back-blading snow off the driveway in the winter. Your situation with the prices is the same as mine was. In hindsight, I think...

    Re: 1210: What do you think?

    I had a 1210 for years. Used it to mow the yard (w/ 60" MMM) and bush hog a 3 acre pasture (w/ 4' bush hog). Great little machine. It's amazing what 16 HP can do. I sold mine 2 years ago (just...

    Optima for TC34

    It appears that the factory battery in my 2 year old TC34 is starting to leak, as has happened to others at TBN. The "perfect fit" AGM-style battery would be an Optima D51, but they have suspended...

    Price Check Re: Price for new tc34da

    I paid about $16,000 for my 34 last year, and $4000 for the FEL. I've read where some have done better and others have paid more. It's a great tractor, though.

    Jinman is correct (typical). Tractor is made in Japan, therefore metric. Loader is made is USA, therefore "standard".
