I like the look of the "regular" New Holland compact trractors, but that one is real weird looking to me. Maybe built buy Murray. LOL.

That's the look they introduced as the "Boomer".

Chief- FYI these are considered compact tractors.

Argee, don't tell me. :hand: :quiet: :fineprint Tell New Holland and their dealers.


The new TCDA "Super" compacts

"The new TCDA "Super" compacts are super efficient, turning more of their 48 and 55 gross engine horsepower into usable power at the PTO and drawbar. The TC48DA and TC55DA offer a suprising combination of big power and convenient size. Underneath their mild-mannered, stylish exterior lies big horsepower and hydraulic capacity that allow you to do more work fast." :pedro:

Compact tractors (CUT's) are actually currently broken down into into tow classes:

Sub Compact Tractor (i.e. JD 2210, Kubota BX2200)
Compact Tractor

Both Kubota and New Holland are trying to open up a new class:

Super Compact

New Holland with their TC48DA and TC55DA

Kubota with their Grand L 30 series L5030

I suspect John Deere will come along with something along the lines of a 4000 Ten Series 5710 or 6010 in due time, not liking to be out done by the competition.

So what your saying is anything over 45HP enters the realm of "Super Compact". I would think it's more of an Ag tractor at that point. But then again, Ag tractors of old came in under 25 HP.....go figure!

Rated 43 hp at the pto. I can't figure what is meant by opening a new class of cut.

I think it is just more hype and marketing. The John Deere 5000 Series tractors have been around for years and they go up to 89 hp. I guess maybe the diffenence is hydrostatic drive, but even the big combines, dozers, and other equipment are going to hydro drive too.
