The bigger, fancier tractors with cabs have an ajustment knob to ajust the ptos start. Our TS 125 NH has this, good thing too or it would ruin the driveshaft shearpins on the baler and cut- dtioner.

I have to say I am majorly happy with my Boomer 24. It has exceeded all my expectations. Especially the backhoe attachment. I've dug up trees that were 6-8 inches with just one scoop of the backhoe bucket. Today I hooked up a 5' bush hog and it didn't even know it was back there. I was cutting down 3" trees and it didn't even bog the engine. Like I said, I am extremely happy with the tractor.
I've had 2 warranties issues though. The backhoe attachment is leaking at the top cylinder. Also the front loader screw fell out and I lost a bushing. The company I bought it from told me to come and get the part. So I had it in less than 30 minutes. He also gave me Loctite (blue) also.

I just read a very bad story about New Hollands warranty in the latest Farm Show. They left a part out of the transmission on a new tractor and it broke down. Trash went through the PTO and that broke down. Then it broke down again. The guy wants a new tractor and the dealer says he should get a new tractor. New Holland said they would give him a new tractor and months later says no deal. Pay us $7,500 then we will see.
I'm sure that will help sales when it gets around.
Cvans... man ol man.. if you haven't seen my "New Holland Boomer 24" please do. I have never been so aggravated in my life! I bought the tractor 10 months ago and it's been in the shop for 40 days already. Guess what? New Holland will not do anything for me! My tractor actually falls under the lemon law and New Holland still will not do anything! It is a "never me" situation.

Absolutely CVANs. Well today finally made my decision. I loved the Boomer 24 but the Mahindra is just superior. The Boomer had the pedals I wanted and the comfortable joystick. The one thing that overthrew that was the Plastic hood and side panels on the Boomer. The ones on here that own a front loaders know the hoods can take a beating. One good whack on the plastic hood it will be destroyed. One good whack on the metal hood atleast it can be bent back out. Overall performance, quality and warranty go to Mahindra. I tried proving myself wrong in a 100 ways but I keep coming back to the 26xl. Come the middle of April.... I will own a Mahindra 26xl.
Don't be too quick to discount the plastic hood. Depending on the material they used, it very well may take a hit and bounce right back where a steel hood will definitely get a dent.

Love my Kubota! Looked at those plastic hoods on deere and holland. I have bounced stuff off the hood that would have cracked the plastic hoods. I'll take a ding over replacing plastic any day. To each his own. :o)

Sears that story makes me sick. Buying something like that should be an enjoyable experience.
