"The tractor has great power and comfort.
The Perkins 6 out performs my neighbors higher horsepower tractors with 4 cylinders. No problems!"

"This is a bare bones tractor aimed at farmers who want a basic idiot proof tractor that is comfortable.
Duties are mainly feeding out via 3pt linkage bale feeder and carry 2nd bale on fork,mowing, move my own hay and silage bales. Track maintenance and general tractor work.
This tractor delivers for it's intended job, but due to major mission creep it is now the wrong tractor.
A contractor friend was let down by his bale shift sub contractor. So I stepped in and speedily found that while adequate on farm, the hydraulic pump was to small for full-time loader work (front and rear bale grabs). On the hills it showed good balance and felt sure footed.
All in all, I am satisfied with the match of tractor to original job description."
