Super Steer On A TC40
rating
4.2

Model year: 2004 Date Purchased: 2004-08-13 Number of Hours: 876

"Wow what a tractor! This tractor can pull its weight in low gear / 4-wheel drive. The front tires almost fold up to a 90-degree turn. This is important in cutting grass on steep hillsides. The rear tires cannot hold on wet or steep hills, but the 4-wheel really holds the tractor in place. It cuts so fast that you can burn out the mower belts. Hook up a 30-ton log splitter/single wedge, and not much can stop the wedge. I use a forklift to load and a wedge to finish the first split on a 4-foot oak log. Drop down to 12-inch cuts for knots."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Super steer, fast starting diesel, no one knows how to start tractor Cons: Cost, not a first time tractor, learn the lesson on junk Type of User: Homeowner 50-100 Acres Location: CND IL I also considered buying: Caterpillar 931B

TC40D Purchased Used

"We purchased a used TC40D last summer with about 1550 hours on it. It had not been maintained to our liking, but we got a great deal on it so we decided it was a worthwhile investment. The tractor (hydrostatic/supersteer/FWD) came with: 17LA loader, Sims cab w/ heater, 84" belly mower, and a back blade. The mower had been purchased separately by the last owner and he never mounted it so we were aware some extra parts would probably be needed, which turned out to be the case. The tractor runs well and is enjoyable to operate. The hyrdostatic/supersteer options make mowing/operating much easier and I would strongly recommend both options if you are in the market for a New Holland. The bucket does attach/detach relatively easily (5-10 minutes). The cab was quite a bit of work to install, but it will be left on permanently. If you plan to add a mower to an already existing tractor, talk to your dealer about all of the parts needed. Lastly, if you purchased used, CHECK ALL YOUR FLUIDS before operating. Our FWD was not engaging properly and it turned out the FWD reservoir was out of fluid, which upon filling, solved the problem without any damage."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Available options - supersteer and hydrostatic strongly recommended. Cons: Parts are pricey, but this is true with all dealers. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: USA NY I also considered buying:

Very Easy to Operate, Not Impressed with Hydro
rating
3.5

Model year: 2005 Date Purchased: 2009-07-30 Number of Hours: 247

"90% of the time, this tractor works great, but because the relief valve in the hydrostatic transmission lifts so easily, I can't always utilize the horsepower of the engine. The "whine" from the hydro gets old after a very short time. I now have about 420 hrs on the tractor, and the quick detach pins are worn out, causing a lot of play in the bucket. It doesn't appear there are any bushings to replace to solve the excessive play issue. Overall I like this tractor a lot. My previous tractor was a Ford 3000 (38 hp), eight speed, no power steering. So using this is like going from a Yugo to a Cadillac. I got a real good deal when I bought this tractor, so I'm not whining too much. "

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Smooth running, good hydraulic power for FEL, good ergonomics. Cons: Noisey hydro, relief valve lifting too soon, glow plug timer failure, and directional light module failed ($175 to replace). Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA NY I also considered buying:

Great Wall of Haliburton

Model year: 2003 Date Purchased: 2003-06-06 Number of Hours: 1500

"I purchased my tractor when I was building my cottage in Haliburton, Ontario. It has a bucket and backhoe. We did a lot of drainage work and then we built a retaining wall around the cottage about 300' of 4' high wall. The tractor has had a workout and never really been a problem. I would buy another and recommend it to others."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Easy to operate, easy to maintain, almost always starts even when left alone for a couple of months. Cons: I bought it when the Canadian dollar was worth $0.65 US, so I paid 40% too much. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: CND OT I also considered buying:

"Things started to fall off the first week (3pt.control lever, hydraulic leaks every 2 months). The loader would dump all by its self and would fall 7 inches in 5 minutes dealer just changed parts and returned the machine to me without testing if repair fixed machine. I called NH top care (they were the only good part of my experience) it spent 3 months at the dealer with no compensation from NH or dealer. I still have no idea what they actually did to fix the problem. The loader control valve was discontinued for my model and they had to use one that had to be modified to work (at least that is what the dealer told me) my experience was very bad and now the tractor is up for sale."

"Bought this tractor used with 300 hrs, a loader and a backhoe. So far it's worked okay. The Hydrostatic trans seems to be slipping in high range but not all the time. I've used it for a couple of months though with no problems at all. I'm going to take it to the dealer for a checkup and get the full service on it. "

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Controls are convienient and easy to operate. Cons: Trans is slipping a bit when it's warm. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA ID I also considered buying: John Deere 3520, Kubota L3700SU

"Just bought a used NH TC40A 4WD with a FEL. I have only put about 25 hours on my tractor and am really pleased with it. Although I have the TC40A(shuttle shift) I still love it. The entire loader is very easy to remove. I have had no problems with it so far and would recommend it to anyone. Pics to come."

"Decent tractor. Pretty strong. I don't like rear fenders on these new Hollands. They crack and split too easily. I've had a TC45, TC26 and this TC40 and all have eventually cracked the fenders. New Holland is pricey to replace the rear fenders -approx. $700.00 ea. Can't even compare to my John Deere which has thick fiberglass fenders. Deere is also much more user friendly. The controls are handier and levers more precise. However they aren't bad tractors!!!"

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Yuppie tractor -good resale. Cons: Rear fenders are flimsy and not well supported. They crack easily. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: CND OT I also considered buying: John Deere 4320 (old)
