I have a chance to buy one, I own a TO30 and have it sold, so was gonna replace it with a To30 with a Sherman transmission hi low. Anyhow, anything Weak points on the 35 that I should be aware of?

Get a Deluxe model as they have the two stage clutch for live hydraulics and PTO. The Special model does not have those features.

Look for the deluxe, be sure it has power steering.

Otherwise they are good tractors for their size.

The clutch is stiff, your leg will get a real work out doing intricate work.

The front suspension is a little weak, especially if using a loader.

I agree with the others - make sure it's a two stage clutch and you have a better tractor - I've never had power steering, I guess it would be nice, the 35 does steer harder than the TO30 and is somewhat less nimble - the 6/2 transmission gives good working gears, tho it is somewhat notorious for getting hung up between two gears while shifting, I've yet to have this problem with my current 35, tho the F40 I grew up with would do it once in a while -

They are a nice package if you don't ask too much of them -

Unless you walked into a dealership who still stocks a variety of 1955 TO35's... you are stuck looking at the one in front of you. There aren't many people on these pages who would steer you away from one.
IF it has the options you need or want- oh, to have a single stage clutch, you might as well have kept the 30.
I make no use of the extra gears, I usually work in 1st low, and go down the road in 3rd low. No different than my 30. The ground drive pro is only used for 3 point hay rakes and special seed drills. The 'works when it feels like it' power 'assisted' steering is about the only selling point if it does not have live pto or hydraulics, so it comes down to price. If it has what you want at a price you are comfortable paying, there's nothing else to think about... so what's it got and how much they want?

Deluxe is your best bet. The extra gears can come In handy, I myself use low range most of the time. Not having power steering isn?t terrible, but if your
not moving, it can be a bear to turn.

It has live pto and hi low range transmission. No power steering. He wants 2000$ for it. I can get a really descent To30 for 1750 with cable operated hi low tranny. It has charging issues, but it may just need polarized. It’s sat for a while but runs nice... hi low works nice. A member here posted a modification to change it from cable to lever action. It’s 110$ ... so I’d still have less money in it.... it’s local. The 35 is is an hour and a half away.

Money, As well as limited amount of space in my 30x40 pole barn will stop me from buying both. My barn is packed and my billfold will only allow for one tractor..

take the live power take-off if conditions are otherwise similar. My personal opinion is that live power raises the machine to a full level above the TO30.

Keep in mind that the Hi/Lo in the 35 does not affect the PTO speed. You get 540 PTO operation in all six forward and two reverse gears. The Sherman hi/lo in the TO30 will change the PTO speed. The real advantage of the 35 for me is the low range which allows you to go slower that a TO30 and maintain the 540 PTO speed. Very useful for snow blowing and bush hogging rougher/unknown terrain when you want to be slow and careful.

I think the 35, even non Deluxe, is superior to the 30 for several reasons. First would be the six forward gears, mentioned by others.
Second would be the factory position control, which I don't believe anyone mentioned. Third would be factory 12 volts on the later 35s
with tractometer. And of course there is a little more horsepower in the 35. Also, some 35s have spin out rims. I own a 35 Special and
several 30s and I don't find much difference, if any, in the steering effort. It is true the 35 has occasional tendency to hang between
gears, but this is caused by pulling up on the lever when going into reverse, and you can unstick it with a screwdriver in the oil hole.
I have a steep rough area to traverse with bush hog each year and a 30 would not do it. It requires the low gears of the 35.
