"This tractor is very easy to operate and has appropriate power for it's frame and engine size. The FEL is very strong and lifts more than I expected.
I used this tractor to clear brush, grade our drive way, build up the motorcycle track and do some logging. It has performed well for all of these tasks and I have made great progress on my property since I bought it this summer.
The power is good for its size, but of course a bigger tractor would always be better. I feel like it has been a very good value and have had no problems.
This was purchased from a dealers rental fleet, so I know regular maintenance was done. It also means that I was used hard, but doesn't seem any worse for the wear.
I am extremely happy with this tractor and would recommend this model without hesitation. Shoot me a note if you have any specific questions.
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Very easy hydro-static operation and good visibility.Cons: None really, could always use a bigger tractor with more power.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA WAI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
New Holland TC33D

"I love this little tractor, there were a couple electrical problems when I first purchased the tractor. A breaker was installed in place of a fuse and a relay added to the circuit that the starter is on.
Problems were taken care of by the dealer under warranty. A technician was sent to my place to do the repairs, so I was not without my tractor. Dealer was very good about the service.
I have replaced the ignition switch at about 300 hours and the glow plug relay at 600 hours, no other problems. I did the repairs myself with help from the TractorByNet Forum.
I have performed oil changes and HST fluid/filter changes myself with no problem. At 600 hours, the manual states that the valves should be adjusted and injectors checked. The dealer service manager said unless I was having a problem I go forgo these two items.
I use the tractor to plow snow and maintain my 20 aces, no farming, but do a lot of landscaping projects. I would purchase this tractor again. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Very easy to use and will do any job I ask it to. I thought I would need something with more HP, but 33 HP is plenty.Cons: Parts/filters are exspensive.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA WII also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I looked for a while before I found my New Holland. We looked at Craigslist and eBay, but to find the right tractor at the right price (and within reasonable shipping distance) was tough. We then looked at new, which due to the deals, seemed like the best way to go. We looked at and drove the equivalent John Deere and Kubota, but needed to wait a bit to save up the extra cash it would take.
Then, I discovered the New Holland on eBay and with free shipping. Wow. We were cautious, which is limited to asking the right questions and gut instinct. In our case, it paid off handsomely!
Overall, I'm happy and love to use it. I've now fertilized and rototilled my 3 acres of vineyard and move some dirt around. Next, ag tire, spraying the vines and mowing in the spring. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: We knew we needed 35 hp due to our need to drive a sprayer, but found that each of those ponies is really necessary to climb our steep hills. The 4wd is also key, as well as the occassional diff lock. Next, I need ag tires, as any mud will stop it on the steeps. The supersteer option was included and man, is it great. We have a vineyard and it's tough to get into the rows without hitting anything.Cons: Any niggles I have are small, such as the slowness with which it locks the diff. As I turn up into a steep row, I just pray that it locks and I don't get stuck (a pretty big deal if I'm pulling my spreader and the tractor goes backwards). Another issue is changing gears. It often resists shifting and I end up clutching/unclutching, reving the motor to get it to change from neutral to first. It happens just often enough to be a pain.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA CAI also considered buying: Bobcat CT235, John Deere 3032E, Kubota L3300 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
TC34DA - Great Tractor
Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2007-05-25Number of Hours: 600
"The model of this tractor has been changed to a Boomer 2035 (previous model versions were TC34DA and T2220 – all the same tractor). This is an excellent tractor. So far it is the best Ford/New Holland owned to date (previous tractors owned – Ford 1710, 1725, and a New Holland TC33D).
The tractor has good power for it size and the four wheel drive is very good. FEL w/68 inch and quick attach works great! The cruise control for the HST is a big plus when cutting for a long time.
I have no problem going toe to toe against my Uncle’s John Deere 3520 and actually will burn less fuel than the JD doing the same amount of work. Durability is excellent; have not had a problem or leak yet with the tractor. Lives up to the New Holland name! "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Durability is excellent, 3HP and FEL lift power is good, fuel efficiency is great. Cons: The only complaint, which to me is very minor, is removing the oil filter. It seems I need to remove the fuel filter in order to get to the oil filter and change it. Again, no big deal; I usually change both of them at the same time anyway. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NYI also considered buying: John Deere 3520, Kubota L3540 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I have used this tractor for landscaping projects, snow removal, and the care and upkeep of my 20 acres. It has been a very useful piece of equipment. When the tractor was new I experienced a few electrical problems that were repaired under warranty.
1. The 10 amp fuse for the safety switches/fuel shut-off kept blowing and was replaced with a breaker-problem solved.
2. The starter would not engage all the time, acted like when a solenoid is bad. A relay had to be added to the circuit-problem solved.
3. At Approx. 300 hours had to replace the ignition switch. This was an easy repair.
4. I replaced the battery with a Yellow Top Optima. This battery will not leak thru the caps like the original did. Very happy with this change.
I have done all the maint. myself at the scheduled times. Added a step kit to the right side, which was expensive.
Attachments: New Holland 7308 Loader 60" bucket, 6' Brush Hog Back Blade, 6' King Cutter Rake, 60" King Cutter Box Scraper."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy to use and has plenty of power for my needs. Would purchase again.Cons: Parts and accessories are expensive.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA WII also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
