"Good small tractor including cab and A/C. I use it mainly for a topping (Brushcutter!) and pulling a 6-ton dump trailer. It's comfortable and performs well for my requirements and turns in tight spaces with the super steer.
Problem: previous owner has damaged the threads on the pick-up-hitch mounting holes on the underside of the rear transmission casing! How do I repair this problem?"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Does everything it says on the can within the limits of 65BHP.Cons: Can't see many considering the pros.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: UK OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

TN65 - Excellent Utility Tractor
Model year: 2003Date Purchased: 2003-07-01Number of Hours: 300
"I use my tractor for everything from handling rolled hay to bushhogging to moving dirt and gravel for maintaining the roads and trails on the property. My TN65 has performed exceptionally. If I had one improvement to make, I think I would have dropped the extra money for a 4WD. Of course that isn't a failing of the machine, only a failing of my wallet at the time :-)
The stock model had all the feature I wanted save the sun shade. I also added a FEL and extra valves rather than splitting the existing stock remote.
I've been very happy with the service and performance."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Excellent fuel efficiency, good torque. good hydraulics, excellent valueCons: Brake pedals could be further apart (I have big feet), differential lock is a little stiff.Type of User: Homeowner 100+ AcresLocation: USA ALI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

New Holland TN55
Model year: 2005Date Purchased: 2007-07-07Number of Hours: 500
"The TN55 was the smallest large tractor I wanted or needed. It is able to lift one ton bales, pull a 11' disc, 7' blade and power a bush hog 850 back hoe. Adding FEL with a 7' bucket was perfect, with fork lift attachment, couldn't live without it. I maintain 50 acres now, perfect size. I bought it used with a hour meter that was tampered with, so unknown hours. I'm an IH person, but the price was right, built on the same line.
