New Holland Boomer TC29D

I'm looking at small tractors, and leaning towards this model. I did an internet search and got really positive feed back.

I want to use it for aerating, bush-hogging (5' rotary cutting), front bucket work (mulch installs and light landscaping), and slit seeding.

I've looked at JD, and Kubota, but like the HP and the super steer of the New Holland. ;)

Any opinions on these tractors?

I like Boomers too, but I'd move to the TC33 jusy a bit bigger and able to handle landscape rakes when you move up.

I've looked at the Boomers. What's the reliability? I currently own 17HP Kubota B7200. Too small. Looking to upgrade in near future.

The Boomers are very good. They run a Shibaura diesel. Very
torquey and reliable. Pull harder than the equivalent Kubotas or
JDs. I've seen previous series run out to 10-12 thousand hours with no problems. To run a 5' slasher you'd need more power.
Go for the TC 33 or larger. The supersteer is great.

A TC29 only has 26 PTO horse power, thats really the minimun for some attachment, also you would be running lighter attachments not meant for commerical use. a move up in HP allows you to get heavier ones. More $$ up front but longer service life over the long run.

I've also found out that a 29d is the exact same tractor, same size engine as the 25d. The extra power is in the fueling.
A 33d has a bigger engine too.

There are some good deals on the 25ds now, because they are discontinuing that model.

The 25d, 29d and 33d have the same size chassis, just power differences.

I'm still digging info.;)

i have not looked at the 33. how much more is it than the 29? i am getting a price of 11,500 for the 29 (hydro 4wd) and 4100.00 for the loader for it.

"Rudder" in Danville, VA. quoted this.....

$17800.00 TC33d with loader (7308 loader I think) with super steer.

Not bashing here. I have a JD 4400 and a friend has a NH 33D. It is a really nice mowing tractor but I have used it for some bucket and 3pt grade work and was not at all impressed with the power. I have demoed some of the larger ones (35-45 hp) and thought that for the size of the tractor I was still better off with my 4400. I do like where all the knobs and switches are on the NH. But I just ordered a 4410 JD which is the new model and they have addressed most of the issues on the 4xxx series. I like the Hydrostat peddles better on the JD. I can't seem to get used to the rocker pedal type, could be my big feet. Hope I helped.

For what it's worth, the biggest equipment rental place in my area has all Boomers on their lot and they say they have had very good luck with them.

I have a 98 JD 855 that has been excellent, but it doesn't get much use (under 300 hours on the meter). Does kubota still have the hydro pedal and turning brakes on the same side? Stupid in my opinion.

I have owned my TC 33D for over two years. It has been a good machine. For the price and power I would look at the 33. THe money difference is not much.

The super steer is a must in our line of work. I am in the process of looking at adding another tractor to my line. Too much work not enough time. Priced a TC 33 with loader no super steer for $15000.00 Super adds another 2800.00 to the price.

Good luck in your decision.

Definetely get the 33-you will kick yourself later for not geting more power.

I have the "29" & haven't had any problems.
I'm running a 5' front-loader (1200 Lb capacity); a back-hoe; post hole digger; 5' brush cutter; 5' box blade; & a 12' truss boom (with back-hoe for counter balance & stabilizers).

I always go for the most "bang for my buck". While mine works perfectly fine with my equipment, I would advise getting the the most H.P. your budget would allow.

In my case, I got such a good deal on the 29, moving up to the 33 would have cost me another $5000.

In short, if you're getting a good deal on the 29, it should serve you well. If there isn't much of a price difference in the bigger one, you may want to consider it.

I bought a New Holland 33D 4x4 w/ loader last year and love it. Mine is gear drive instead of hydro. Have a hydro same tractor and it does good for aerating and lighter stuff including bush hogging but it is not good when running the loader part. Almost puts alot of strain trying to run both hydraulics at same time.
