Price Paid : $10,000.00
Years of Use : New Owner (0-1 Year)
Implements : 60 inch midmount mower, 52 inch tiller
Purchased From : New Carlisle Tractor
Strengths This replaced a 184 Lowboy and 318 JD. We can mow in an hour what took two with both tractors. It has plenty of power and easy to operate.
Weaknesses The ride is not quite as good as the Lowboy but everything else is so much better that it really shows the 30 years difference in technology. The mower deck is not as heavy as the IH 60 inch deck on the old tractor. We have not found a weakness and hope we don't!
Overall Very impressive little tractor. My wife worked for JD at one time and I was sure she would pick it. We compared JD Kubota and CNH and she preferred the red Boomer style tractor.
