I've had my TO30 for seven years now, but I never bought a manual. I have a copy of the owners manual, but I am hoping for something more detailed. Agco has a TO30 service manual for about $21. This website has a service manual for about $37. There is an IT shop manual out there as well. What's best? Both in quality and depth of information. What is the difference?

The blue Shop service manual as sold on this site is the best one to get. Though it can be purchased as low as $16.00 from other vendors. Shop around. TPI

The I&T is generly not considered that good.

I agree with Jeff-oh, I have I&T manuals for two different tractors and I am not really happy with them. Frankly, I do not think they go into enough detail.

I would want both. Even the I & T leaves a lot to be desired so does the factory models as they are aimed more at the dealer that is already a mechanick and the I & T is aimed more to the owner and on some things they will cover what the factory thinks you should already know. And covering the same thing will word things a bit different or give a different view and that different wording or view may be just what you need to understand. So for the price if you can get both do it.
