I'm just curious, I'm not trying to start a brand war, but I can't think of "lots of creature comforts" that the TYM could be missing? I have never sat in a cabbed TYM, or a new cabbed CUT Deere either. How can their be "lots" of "comforts" missing?The TYM will be missing lots of creature comforts and additional features of a premium brand tractor. For most these extras are not needed anyway. I also looked at TYM and think they are a good choice if you have a stable dealer and parts network. Much better than Bobcat, New Holland, Bad Boy, RK, or any other rebranded outfit.
The Deere in question is a 4 M series? Aren't those pretty basic models? Kind of like a Deere "E" model, only larger chassis on the "M"? Can you get an "M" series Deere with a cab? I'm honestly not sure, but I thought the "M"s were all open station?
When I looked at Deere 5 years ago, I was looking at an R series cabbed (I think it was a 3 series?-it's been so long) Every. Single. Thing. was an option that had to be added to the order for more $. So what I would consider "comforts", like A/C in the cab, stereo radio, side mirrors, cruise control, work lights, windshield wipers, windshield washers... these were all separate ordering options that had to be tacked on to the order sheet. I'm sure there were more, but it's been so long ago, I can't recall them all.
And this was on an R series, which is their "higher grade" tractor vs. an "E", or an "M"?
I'm only questioning the presumed lack of "comforts" on the TYM. I think (from my experience with a partnered brand -Branson), that all of those things you have to add for additional cost on the Deere order sheet, actually come as standard features on the TYM. Again, I'm not saying one is "better quality" then the other one, I'm just questioning your assumption of "comforts".
Maybe I should go back and climb around in a new Deere? They actually have a few cabbed ones sitting on the lot, don't know what # or letter series though.
