Strengths Easy to operate, comfortable seat adjusts to driver weight and back&forth. Multi position steering wheel. Easy to operate "Joy Stick" loader controls are great! Easy to maintain, filters, fill ports etc all easy to get to. No excuse for not changeing them! Quick attach feature on loader is great. Extending arms on 3Pt. a major advantage, although getting them to lock back is a bit of a tricky job. Strong stabilizers that easily adjust to any position. I've got 160 hours on it and haven't had any major issues.
Weaknesses Engaging 4WD is stiff, and won't go if it's not in motion. I know this next one is a safety feature, but if you lift off the seat just a tiny bit(or snow gets packed under it) the engine dies. The Operator presence switch could be located in a different place. Seeing the drawbar isn't easy, you have to lift off the seat a bit to look down at it. See prior comment. Overall there are no mechanical issues tho. Just minor idiosyncrasies.
Overall Love this little machine. It does all I need it to do, all day long. Very fuel effient. I put 5 gallons of fuel in it and can run it almost all day at around 22K rpm. Dealership is great too. Had a couple minor warranty issues, they were out and fixed them the next day... No Charge.
