Strengths Just wanted to give an update , I now have about 20 hrs. on the meter , I have to say though at least a third of those were put on by my 11 year old son. I let him do all the plowing for this years garden and some very small bucket work with the FEL ( under close supervision of course). This thing is a TANK , amazing power in such a little tractor , it will bury a middlebuster outta site. I have also used my 4' brushcutter and a 5' tiller , couldn't tell they were back there. The 4x4 is very nice and I don't know how I lived this long without hydro. I am glad I didn't go with the weaker , more expensive KB and who wants a chinese-made JD ?
Weaknesses It does seem to use quite a bit more fuel than my old Mitsu did , but then again it has 3x as much Hp. Also the parking brake lever sticks sometimes , other than that no problems , no leaks and no limitations.
Overall I tell everybody I meet about this little tractor , I love it. Dickson's is a great dealer and an old family friend. If he sells it it's worth buying. It is big enough to do anything I will ever need to do on my little 10 acre place ,including pulling the neighbors 9N out of a ditch. But small enough to use the FEL inside my 36x40 shop.
