"This came with a New Holland backhoe. I had a Woods backhoe on a TC45 and liked the Woods better, but the New Holland is not that bad."

"Replaced a Ford 3910 with this unit. Old Ford had more low end but the maneuverability of this tractor makes up for the loss of pure grunt. Never fails to start but I've had minor issues with rubber fuel lines rotting off.
Rear lift is extraordinary in capacity for a tractor this size. I love the adjustable steering column. No major complaints, but I'll bet it won't hold value like the 3910 did."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Strong lift (three point).Cons: Short on low RPM torque.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA TNI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"Impressive power and loader lifting capacity. Has been back to dealer a few times for repairs: radiator/PTO/seat sensor. The dealer went good for all repairs but I think the radiator is going again already after 30hrs of use. The horsepower compared to a Kubota 50 hp is much more powerful for being less. Had the option of buying a John Deere but price was the outcome of the purchase."

"My tractor is a 4X4 and has the ag-tires on it instead of the Industrial. Tractor handles well and is easily hauled. Front tires could have be larger for better ride. Tractor has plenty of power but lacks the overall weight sometimes to utilize the power. Great all around tractor for most jobs.
Have pulled 10ft drag type bush hog brand with it for years and it handles it well. Run a 8ft vicon rotary hay mower and she really drinks the diesel. Overall really satisfied. This tractor has a excellent fuel filter system. However the boots on the tie rod ends could have be made better. "
