Great Basic Tractor

Model year: 1997Date Purchased: 2010-01-03Number of Hours: 1037
"This is my first tractor. It is very basic with four wheel drive. I have had a few problems finding parts but overall, it has been great. Steering is a bit heavy since it is not power steering. I do find it is a little light for really heavy loads even with my scraper blade attached. For everyday small lot work like gravel this is great."

Just a Great Little Tractor

Model year: 1995Date Purchased: 2010-10-10Number of Hours: 1000
"We bought a foreclosure and needed to do some landscaping. I picked this tractor up with front loader and scraper blade with 600 hrs on it. Really haven't had any trouble with it. You just have to realize it isn't a big tractor so it takes more loads to do the same work of a bigger tractor.
5 gallons of fuel lasts a good week of hard work so it is pretty good there."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Not a whole lot of maintenance.Cons: Hard to find parts because it was a Japanese made model.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA GAI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Great Little Tractor

Model year: 1992Date Purchased: 1994-06-01Number of Hours: 1080
"I traded for the tractor in 1994 and the previous owner purchased it in 1992 with turf tires, woods finishing mower and a 5 ft. scrape blade.
The tractor has been very reliable with only having to clean brake assemblies and replacing one axle seal both of which I did myself. Overall, great little tractor."

"This machine weighs over 2100 without FEL, which helps maintain traction, and the 3PH is rated at over 1,500lbs. Also, although it is rated at 21HP, the rpms are 2,800, which I consider a positive. I have the hydro version and it is important to operate in the low range while working.
The operating station is comfortable and roomy (compared to the Bobcat CT122 I test drove, which I found a little cramped). Overall, the controls are simple and straightforward and works well for a compact tractor."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Solid build, 3 range hydro.Cons: Older tractor, so may be difficult finding parts.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA CTI also considered buying: Bobcat CT122 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
First One of My Own...
Model year: 1978Date Purchased: 2011-07-05Number of Hours: 1100
"I have life-long experience operating tractors but never owned one before. I had a chance to buy this MF 1020 4WD, with an Allied 195 FEL, small 3pt weight barrel and optional back blade and it has a mid-mount 60" finish mower.
The man I bought it from is a maintenance wizard and this machine is in fantastic shape. I have added a 62" Lynx snow blower to it [my neighbors are all pretty excited] and a set of rear tire chains so that I can get those turf tires to actually put the toy back in the garage when it snows."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Manueverability, function, price and fuel economy.Cons: A little underpowered at 21 hp/17hp@pto, no live pto.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA NYI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
