    Default Decided a FarmTrac 270

    Well my wife and I went and drove some tractors today and decided to go with the FarmTrac 270DTC. The other tractor in the running was a NH TC30. I have a friend at the NH dealer so the salesman said he gave me a good price on the TC30, I have no reason to doubt this but is was still several thousand more than the FarmTrac. My wife on the other hand knows the owner of the FarmTrac dealer. I am not sure if we will get any better of a deal but it made me more secure in buying a lesser known brand. Then it came down to ride, my wife just like the FarmTrac better. Both have a gear drive but with the FarmTrac you didn't feel like you were getting whiplash when you started out even in high gear. Then the FarmTrac also has a shuttle which was a plus. We test drove a TC30 with an HST also and didn't like it. This was just a personal preference nothing against HST. I will admit though having the engine rpm and ground speed essentially separate was nice for the HST. Now I hope I never need that, we will not be mowing. So once the 48mo 0% financing starts in June we will own a tractor.

    Thank you everyone who replied to some of my other postings helping me decide on what to buy.

    Eric, if you like it then you are making the right decision. And don't be afraid to mow with a gear drive CUT. I was just doing so today, they turn on a dime. That 0% at 4 years is very attractive. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] So I take it that you like the dealer. I believe they are a very important part of the equation. I was nosing around a dealer today while taking a lunch break from all my hard work. Let's see. He was a long time Feed and Seed operator who decided to get into tractors. No service bay that I could detect. Not all that helpful either. No, I wouldn't consider buying from him. Check out your dealers place just a thoroughly as you do the tractor. The $$$ you're about to spend should buy you more than just a tractor. The more I look around, the more I'm convinced of this. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Congrats on the new tractor. The LG manufactured machines are very nice. Post some pictures when you get a chance. Good luck!
