    never seen this before how does this work that it can turn that sharp and be 4x4? is this no good i wonder because ive never seen this before? seems like a good price for hours and condition but it is older...

    The Super Steer allows for a really tight turn with the front wheels engaged. The whole front axle pivots, that is the easiest way to describe it. It is handy feature, I spent a couple of hours on a HN with the super steer. I liked it.

    The machine has low hours, I woudn't be concerned about the age of the machine.

    The tc33 that you're looking at will be better. The only thing on the one you are checking out are those aweful turf tires. That is an easy fix.

    what would it cost to fix that? would you recommend having these tire filled? what tire would you get?

    I'd go with R4 tread. R1 or ag tread is decent enough, but on solid surfaces I'd go R4.

    The rears look to run $350 on up and fronts I am having a hard time finding a price. I am not sure how accurate my numbers are.

    I would fill the rear tires.

    That is what I'd do. Or at least go a whole season. R1 is the ag tread. Thumbs Up

    I'd say go for it. You've been looking for a while. I like the New Holland tractors, they are great tractors without the John Deere price.

    it is in really nice shape theres a small crack on the plastic by the fuel tank and it looks like a rock fell out of the bucket at some point and put a small dent in the hard lines of the loader. 920 hrs dosent look like it though. the tractor and trailer are a snowy salty icy mess now from the trip home ill be washing tomorrow. im glad i bought it i think it was a good price

    Be careful in tight quarters with that thing. We have a newer 3045 with Super Steer and a loader. The steering makes the loader move the opposite direction you are trying to move at zero to very slow speeds and can be tough to get used to. You will notice it when changing loader attachments mostly.

    Go ahead and put different tires on that tractor like every one says. Do yourself a favor and keep those tires though because after your first storm you wont be able to put them back on fast enough.

    I own a 4720 deere with turf tires on it, the dealer dropped it off with the R4's and the tractor seriously could not get out of its own way. Driveways with any slope what so ever i had to run two tires in the lawn next to the drive to get up it.

    Now with turf tires it has so much traction i can literally do wheelies with it up a driveway, stops on a dime and pushes hard.
