MF 1230 w/Front End Loader 1464
Model year: 2005Date Purchased: 2005-04-15Number of Hours: 485
"Unit is a great compact tractor. Coupled with the Iseki diesel, its good on fuel and reliable. Small enough to fit into most back yard for landscaping projects. Can be easily trailered on a 7,000 lb trailer.
The only issue I have had has been leaky spools in the control for the loader valve. However, I can't complain this unit has more than paid for itself and has a lot of life left in it. At the time of purchase, this machine was thousands less than an equivalent sized Kubota."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Compact, reliable, and affordable.Cons: Seals on spool started to leak after about 200 hrs of use.Type of User: Commercial LandscapeLocation: USA NJI also considered buying: Kubota B21 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
