I purchased the TC 29 in 2000 and really love it. It is hydrostatic and four wheel drive with front loader. The loader does a great job for that size tractor. Pull two pins tilt the bucket and unhook the hoses and back out from the loader and the bucket and loader is off.
What do you want to know? There a great tractor for the price, I have 2 of them both gears 4x4 w/ loaders. Also have tc 40 hydro with loader. It depends on wnat you want them for and how much you want to spend.
excellent tractors for landscaping and other duties. not relevent here, however, went with a friend this week and tried out the new TC55.. Really well thought out and built machine. Perhaps a little too big for what your plans are.
The tractor are not big so the loaders are adeaquate for them. I used the loader to dig out for patios down through hard clay 10 inches, move topsoil just about everything you can use a loader for. Just remember that its in a 30 hp. tractor the more hp. the stronger and more weight that a loader will move. but for general landscaping there great. PM if you need some more info
