Default TYM T-233 Tractor

I bought a TYM T-233 tractor Thursday for use around my property. Bought a FEL and Boxblade in the package deal. Could of got a dual axle trailer and bush hog in another package but already have a trailer and can get a used finish mower cheaper on CL.

Used the tractor for about 8 hours today, so far I really like the T-233. I redressed the entrance drive with boxblade (did the main hole filling with a Large Ford tractor I borrowed from a friend), moved my heavy duty welding Jig table that is solid steel, moved implements into a new storage area and a few other things today.

Only problem I had with the tractor today was the hood latch wasn't adjusted correctly and the hood popped open when I hit a bump at high speed and flipped open in my face.... scared me cause I had just looked forward when it happened. Adjusted hood catch and all is well!

You might want to keep the roll bar up and wear the seat belt if you were going fast enough to bounce the hood open.

Thanks for the concern!

Wasn't really going that fast (low range / 4 wheel drive) and the ROPS was down so I could work underneath low hanging tree branches, plus my barn's roll up door just clears the ROPS bar in the down position. I keep all heavy loads close to ground during transport and watch the slope angles! The hood's latch was just barely catching, adjusted the latch bracket forward and no more problem.

Now seat belts are always a good idea, don't ask how I know this! To bad they are such a pain when moving stuff by yourself getting off an on tractor, hooking up chains constantly.

Welded on a few upgrades to my FEL bucket and boxblade to make using them easier.

I welded 3 chain hooks onto my FEL bucket, this will help in moving heavy objects around the yard. I was having to wrap chain around a support bar behind the Bucket inorder to use the chain to lift with.





I also welded a hitch receiver onto rear of my boxblade so I can use receiver attachments and will make trailer movement alot easier! Drilled corners of boxblade to install chain hooks there. I can use them to hook a drag harrow or section of chainlink fence or anything I want to drag behind boxblade.

Welcom to the TYM family, I think you will be happy with your tractor. Now all you need are some extra lights and you should be all set.

Thanks!

So far I'm happy with my purchase, only a couple of small problems to correct.

Thought about the lights but want a tool box mounted at the rear of the ROPS to hold tools and hitch attachments more!

So how about a long term follow up? I just happened to see in a Cabelas ad that they are now selling tractors. Did a little research and found out they were made for Cabelas by TYM. First I'd heard of the brand. Although even the 23HP would be serious overkill for my 1 acre do they look pretty nice. Competition to Kubota?
