"Many hydraulic leaks, blown hoses, loader dumps 7inches in 5 minutes. Dealer sucked. NH does not stand behind their equipment. Made so many excuses could not figure problem out passed it off as coincidence. I would not recommend NH products to any one. Oh, the warranty sucked and so did the area service rep."

TC40A 4x4 16LA FEL

Model year: 2007Date Purchased: 2007-10-10Number of Hours: 350
"Have worked the tractor hard using the FEL from digging to moving logs and material. The tractor has performed as expected even with a 6' bushog in tall grass.I move a lot of snow with a 7' HD rear blade and the FEL.
I have R4 tires so chains are a must on all 4s during snowy conditions. The chain vibration from the front tires has caused the radiator to separate on the upper Rt. side tube to tank two times. My dealer would not warranty the problem nor would they go to bat with CNH to resolve this faulty radiator problem.
Now at approx. 350 hrs. the starter solenoid is failing which is frustrating, in the fact that I seldom turn the engine off during a period of work and even the cheapest solenoid made should last more than 350 hrs."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Sturdy build, low fuel consumption.Cons: Weak radiator; Short lived starter solenoid, noisey pump when cold. Poor paint on wheels.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA NCI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"This is the first tractor I have ever owned, a New Holland TC40a with FEL and Backhoe. This tractor has payed for itself 5 times over as far as I am concerned.
I run a 2 bottom Ferguson plow for about a 5 acre food plot and use it for manure, and firewood. The backhoe has been invaluable for helping with clearing roots and rocks. Both are plentiful in NEPA. (Not far from Rick Wallace)
And in everything this tractor has excelled.
Made in USA. I am looking at getting the new Powerstar T4.75."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Really solid tractor.Cons: Fendors were replaced 3 times before they added a bracket. Hydraulics are a bit slow.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA PAI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Problems - Some TC40DA

Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2009-07-01Number of Hours: 300
"Tractor had hydraulic issues from day one,dealer could not figure out problem nor did they care to. Regional rep fabricated statements stating I was satisfied with tractor when I was not.
I asked NH to replace tractor they refused. Blew 2 hyd.hoses that sprayed me with hyd.oil in the face tractor spent all winter at dealer and returned to me. Within .5 hrs, blew another hose so dealer turned down pressure which made tractor less powerful."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Good power.Cons: Bad dealer networking, not at all reliable, parts fall off regularly.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA CTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
