Stonehenge, The John Deere didn't hold up to the abuse of lifting, we unloaded it this winter Someone needed it to move snow bad, didn't lose too much on it
From what I understand you can now order them with hand controls so might want to give NH a look see.

We like Case

We run a Case 1840 and are very happy with it. I am always thinking about getting another one, and will probably stay with Case. We have a dealer nearby, and I am always in favor of buying something from a local dealer rather than saving a few bucks at purchase price, then relying on a 1/2 hour or 1 hour trip to get parts or service.

I love operating our case 1845c. It just works and works and I love the hand controls. My ankles just arn,t flexible enough for those foot controls.

Stonehenge

We own a New Holland with hand controls. Just tell them that you want them and they will install them for you. The dealer claimed that they were better than Case's hand controls but I disagree. However, in my opionion the overall machine with hand controls beats the tar out of case. Of course that is just my opioin.

Trouble with most peoples comparison to Case it is inreguard to the 1840's and 1845's,there is no comparison when talking about the 75xt to 95xt.With full servo hand controls ease of operation is unparalleled.

Yes diggerman!

I do remember that, altough it has been some time since I ran that case (5 yrs), that memory of the smoothness of the controls really stands out. I'm sure it was an XT model, but can't remember the specific size. I completly agree with you. I never knew those details you gave, but now I know, and knowing is half the battle!

Paul,

How old was your JD? I bought the 240 back in June and have no problem unloading pallets of sod or block off a truck. I also got the hand controls. wouldn't buy one without them.

It was less than a year old One of the first 270's with 2 speed trans. problem was the torque tube in the back broke on us twice, JD fixed it both times but we felt it wouldn't hold up.
