"We were fortunate to be able to find this really nice tractor listed on Craigslist in our area. The guys who had it listed are also involved in "rebuilding" old tractors, so they took our tired old Cub 1572 e/w 3 cyl. Kubota Diesel as part of the deal.
Our "new" unit is equipped 4WD and a factory installed 812 loader/bucket, which will help us with a lot of tree work on our property. We have a Cub Cadet zero turn mower, so do not need to mount a mower deck on this tractor. All we need is a blade on the rear CAT 1 to level some material and we're are all set! This unit, with the loader and 4WD works great on snow clearing tasks."

"This tractor had been a pretty good tractor until my brother and his wife got a hold of it. After each time we mowed, we would clean all the grass out of it with an air compressor. Blew all the grass out of the filters. Kept it in the barn covered.
It has a 60" belly mower that is hard to get on and off. We bought a 60" plow for the back and used that to clean the drive. We had to had a 4 wheel drive model because of the hills. Like I said it was good until. Disconnected the seat switch so you could stand up."

"This was my 1st tractor. Unfortunately it was a bad choice. Every time I use it I wonder if something is going to go wrong. Lift lever wore a hole in Hydro line at 200 Hrs., lost almost all fluid, 5 gal. at $54. per. Fan belt broke, nuts come loose, parking brake wouldn't lock. Now the hydrostatic trans quit working, was fine then just quit. I haven't had it fixed yet but could be looking at big $."
