    I see you have a 01 JD with loader also. Question: Can you comment on the difference of the construction of these two machines? I do not have a JD so this may be an apple/oranges type thing, I don't know.

    How do you rate the two JD vs NH, etc.

    The John Deere is a completly different machine, Ill post pics tomorrow. It is pretty much an over grown garden tractor but has served its purpose very well. They both are built very well, its really your choice in color pretty much, green, orange or blue. The deere would have been nice but the dealer by me isnt big enough (imo) to handle such a big tractor. Chappell is the bigger probably in New Hampshire for equipment and can handle anything, they have something like 3 service trucks out daily. The NH was also less money for more tractor, something I didnt consider before until they showed me the size difference and the price difference. This should suit my needs for many years to come.

    Snow-oh ya.

    Did you know that we can get heated cabs on the TC35 for winter work?

    $5k is what I think I was told.

    Why didn't you get a skid steer. After using tractors for 2 years and then trying a skid steer, i never want to run a compact tractor of any kind ever again. On retaining walls and paver jobs they just are not efficent.

    Congratulations! Looks just like my TC33DA. I hope you enjoy it and make as much money with it as I do. Just today I spread out 20 yds. screened topsoil and 15 yds. mulch at one of my big accounts. I truly love this machine.:cool2:
