New Holland 3045 Posted by Dave on 09/14/2013

The creature comforts such as the radio, air conditioning, cruise control, and seat are wonderful. The continuously variable transmission does take some getting used to before feeling really comfortable operating it. The transmission works really well but it is really different than selecting a gear and letting out the clutch. I find having to pull on the handbrake to prevent the alarm from sounding whenever I leave the seat very annoying.

Likewise, I find the engine kill switch in the seat annoying as sometimes one would like to be able to lean forward for a better view of the loader. As soon a your rear end leaves the seat the engine quits. The 4-wheel drive switch is in a location where it often gets changed when entering or exiting the cab.

The bucket on the loader is made of lighter gauge steel than my previous 1989 Ford and consequently the lip of the bucket is bent and will have to be strengthened with additional steel. That is enough venting about all the minor problems---as you can see above I really like the tractor as I gave it all 5 star ratings.
