I love my "big blue snow shovel" TC30. I have built two dams,set many timbers, made 4 motocross tracks, cleared countless trails and blazed my own. I've pulled out rocks with the back hoe large enough to tip the tractor backwards. If you take your time and really think about your move, this tractor can move mountains. Plus, it fits in spots the large 45 hp will not.
The only issue I've had is the bucket down control. Have heard others have the same thing going on. All other breaks have been my heavy foot and hands on the controls. All of which haven't been too bad to do myself. Just snapped the rear axle housing... oops.
