Used TC30 Posted by Roar Sand on 02/17/2013

Bought a foreclosed home on 20 acres and decided to do a little logging and clean up in the woods. Was close to getting blocked in, so went and rented a tractor for a day. Could see that that would happen again and didn't want to keep on renting, so we bought a NH TC30 on Ebay. It is a 2007 hydro static drive 4x4, and it had 139 hours on it.

It came with a NH 7308 FEL and did a fine job of skidding logs down to the road. Later we bought a used brush hog and a rake, and for winter we mounted a NH 716D 63" front snow blower.

The tractor seems to be a little under powered for a 63" blower, as I have to slow way down if there is any significant amount of snow, but the biggest problem are the R4 tires the tractor came with. They are very poor for snow and ice. Traction is marginal, and the front steers very poorly. Presently looking into a set of chains.

The local dealer has been very helpful. Bought the used snow blower there.
