D-35 Case Posted by T Hunt on 01/07/2012

I bought this tractor as a replacement to another tractor and for the nearby dealer. I have New Holland, Kubota, Massey, and John Deere in my area. The tractor is almost 18 months old to me and currently has 80 hours on it.

The size of the tractor allows it to be trailered fairly easily which is a plus if you need to move the tractor. I have a loader on the tractor as well.

My work consist of disc, mowing, moving round hay bales, and using a rotary tiller. The tractor loader combination is not large enough to remove round bales from the second layer of a semi- float trailer. It takes a fairly large tractor to do that. I have moved three thousand pounds of Alfalfa at a time (two up front and one on the rear spike) which is a significant load.

The tractor handles the disc quite well in four wheel drive. I am in Texas and the ground was quite hard this summer from the drought. I was able to pulverize the ground and use my broadcaster to seed oats.

The tractor does seems to run a tad hot (it was already 109 F outside) under heavy load when mowing. That is the one place where and additional 10 horsepower would make a difference.

Overall, I like the tractor. There have been zero problems at this time. It is a heavy tractor for the size category.
