Randy, I hate to sound a less than positive note but my experience with Ford/New Holland tractors has NOT been a positive one. My father's TW20 was a piece of junk and he ended up trading it in on a John Deere 7320. As you can see in the picture you posted, the New Holland tractor was for sale at a John Deere dealership. My dealer had a TN-70 for sale from a trade in and could not hardly give it away. The customer who traded it in was not happy with the power and performance. My experience in government procurement of tractors and equipment has shown to me that New Holland was not very customer oriented. They are nice looking tractors though. :peace:

:cry: LW & Chief, say it isn't so....say it isn't so....!:cry:

The little 1715 FNH that I have is pretty impressive, but then again it's a lot of Ford and a little New Holland. Your speaking of hydro transmissions I presume.

LW MOORE, you may want to take a look at some "green paint". Those 5000 Twenty Series tractors are nice. Hard to beat a 5520 for power. Or a 6715 if you need a bit more in size. They have some NICE cab set ups. Very good incentives as of late too. :thumbsup:

What are the specific problems with the TN series? Because if I was to buy one, it would be used and I'd like to know wha to look for.

You would think the dealer, knowing your dissatisfaction, would be willing to get you out of these units. I'm assuming he wants your future business.

Ford

When I bought my Deere in 2000,of course I looked at and demo'ed a lot of iron. The boomer series of ford was a new thing at the time.I went to my area Ford dealer and he would not let me demo any of the booomers. He claimed he had limited stock and wanted to keep them all new.I had bought 2 tractors from the man in the past.
Well ,my local Deere Dealer dropped off 3 seperate tractors to make sure I made the right choice.The thing that suprized me was when it was all said and done I spent less money buying a tractor with higher resale.I have never looked back.My next new machine will also be green.

It appears that New Holland has one bad egg(the TN series) in their basket. That's certainly not a reflection on the rest of their line-up.
