New Boomer 30 Posted by Pat on 07/06/2013

Bought a Boomer 30 with a front end loader a few months ago. First day out, a pine limb hit the right rear wheel valve, popping off the top of the valve. I quickly loaded it on my trailer and zoomed to the dealer. He fixed it for free.

Second day out a small pine limb popped up under the right side of the tractor between the hood and the loader. Right, it broke the filter out flow diesel line to the motor and bent the metal mounting bracket. It took a couple of hours to get a make-do filter on and flush the lines, pump and injector lines. Third time out, limb popped up from the ground and broke the right light cover.

The tractor runs great and performs well, as long as I can keep it running. The biggest problem is where they put the filter. It's on the right side next to the fire wall. Really hard to get to with a loader attached.

I went in to buy a Kubota, but the salesman talked me into the New Holland. I'm not sure if the Kubota is built with components exposed to anything you run over or not.

I have a 20 year old Belarus 250AS. Over the 20 years I've had the Belarus, I've only broken a hydraulic lift bar. They don't make tractors like they use to. Too much exposed components.

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Runs great, performs well. Cons: Too many exposed components that can be broken by limbs. Drivers seat too close and low for long legged drivers. New Holland parts are twice as expensive as the Kubota. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: United States Mississippi I also considered buying: Kubota B3030
