Commercial Use on Vegetable Farm
Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2007-04-15Number of Hours: 2200
"We use our TC45DA as our main tractor on a commercial vegetable farm. We operate it for about 300 hours per year for hauling, loader work, tillage, mowing, spreading compost, etc. In general we are very pleased.
After seven seasons of use the only issues have been:
1. Cracked radiator (probably my fault for not changing coolant often enough).
2. Worn PTO brake which needed replacement. Possibly my fault for stopping PTO at high engine RPMs. You should engage and disengage PTO at low engine RPM.
3. Broken ratchet pawl on parking brake. Poor design which can be dangerous (see other threads on this).
4. A fuse which needed replacement.
5. Bad seal on one FEL cylinder.
6. The cruise control is unreliable which is annoying. Also we have a number of problems with grit (rust?) plugging the screen at the exit from the fuel tank.
In general I would recommend it."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Reliable, easy to use.Cons: FEL lift capacity could be a bit higher. Issues with cruise control button and brake ratchet pawl.Type of User: Commercial FarmerLocation: USA WII also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Model year: 2004Date Purchased: 2013-11-15Number of Hours: 2500
"After almost 2500 hours, the first 1000 mostly very heavy work, I am absolutely satisfied with the performance of the tractor, especially its ability to get through wet spots. The dealership is also excellent. I have them service it on farm every 250hrs.
Some niggles on the quality of materials. Both lift arms broke at the shackles within the first year and both stabilizer shackles broke later. The dip headlights stopped working after about two years and one of the lights lost the chrome reflecting coat. The clutch pedal springs have twice broken (and I do not ride the clutch). The hand break cable broke after about two years.
Some of the dashboard lights are not functioning correctly. The machine is always shredded and only used when the weather is dry---no cab."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Pulling power.Cons: Poor materials in some parts.Type of User: Commercial FarmerLocation: EUR OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Very smooth and powerful engine. Build quality seems quite nice. Have had repeated small issues. But I believe them to primarily be related to previous ownership. The tractor is very sturdy and should be a great asset. "
