"Bought unit used from a couple that were moving. Seems like a well built tractor; no serious complaints. Only problems so far:
- Very small in rad hose block heater, must be plugged in for at least 3 hours when its -35'C
- Loader bucket slightly undersized for tractor
- Hydraulics are a little slower than my previous tractor."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Nice unit to operate. Love the shuttle shift forward and reverse.Cons: Hydraulics could be quicker.Type of User: Homeowner 50-100 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"We bought this tractor in '04. I can't even say how many hours are on it 'cause the gauge is broken. All in all this has been a great running tractor. We use it heavily in our commercial landscaping business.
The brush claw attachment for the front end loader is its most valuable asset. We hardly ever take it off. Our only problem is that we use it like a skid steer for very heavy use. It has held up for us with many repairs to the frame and has proven to be quite a work horse. We just need something bigger.
For those of you who want a great tractor for light to moderate farm use, this would be a great tractor. If you want something to work out in the field everyday, you should probably look at something a little bigger."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: I have never had one issue with the engine; Good for the price; Very smooth running tractor; Manuverablity and finesse are awesome; Grapple attachment is a must have.Cons: The frame is way to weak for the HP; Front end loader is mounted directly to the transmission casing; I've had to make many welds and repairs to the frame work due to bad design.Type of User: Commercial LandscapeLocation: USA GAI also considered buying: Kubota B4200, Montana 4940, Massey Ferguson 5435 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
