"Great tractor for the price.Upkeep costs have been minimal and all service has been performed by me except for repair for a blown head gasket at 390 hours. BTW I don't fault the mfg. for that---just as likely a bad gasket. Stuff happens.
I use it to pull a finish mower, a bush hog, a box blade, a scraper blade in winter, and to operate a fertilizer spreader and a PTO driven chipper. Also have a FEL and forks for the loader frame.
Overall, I'm very happy---this little tractor does everything I ask of it, and makes taking care of 35+ acres much easier."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Cost, build quality, ease of operation, reliability.Cons: None except for head gasket issue.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NCI also considered buying: John Deere 2030, Ferrari 18-66 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Nice Tractor, but it's not a Kubota
by John Hondrogen
Model year: 2007Date Purchased: 2013-11-14Number of Hours: 280
"I had a small Kubota BX24 and stepped up in size and got this. The price point on this was very good and that is what sold me on it. The backhoe controls don't operate as smoothly as on the little Kubota. Much more jerking movement. Loader is fine, but my cylinders seem to be leaking (with so few hours?) I will probably rebuild over the winter. I would definitely buy another."
