Price Paid : $0.00
Years of Use : 30-Days
Implements : Loader, Box Blade, Brush Cutter, Post Hole Auger
Purchased From : Landmark Equipment, McKinney.
Great turning radius with belly mower, easy to use and easy to reach fender mounted controls for loader, the implement height and the PTO. Reverse mounted fan really does keep heat off the operator. Very bright headlights and worklights. Easy to remove loader bucket. Power steering really cuts down on operator fatigue.
Weaknesses ROPS doesn't fold down at all making it hard to mow under trees.
Overall We've had this great little tractor a little over a month and it has amazed us every time we've used it. We have a 1 acre fenced yard and lease 15 acres. We won't mow the whole 15 acres with this but with the the AGMeier brush cutter I've mowed the fence lines and about 3 acres. We've mowed the yard 4 or 5 times with the belly mower in the 6 weeks we've owned it and we can mow closer to the curving flower beds and closer around trees than we could with the Huskee 24 HP 46" cut riding mower it replaced. There is no place in the yard we can't get this tractor that we could get the previous mower. I've used the loader bucket to build a 45' long 4' tall berm around our swimming pool. I have not yet found a load of dirt that would fit in the bucket that it wouldn't lift. We've used the bucket to move all kinds of stuff including with a chain to lift the box blade off the trailer when we brought it home. We took the dealer offered 48 month 0% financing. Bruce at Landmark was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. We were originally going to go with a Deere but the local Ag Power was so disorganized it was almost comical. Totally different experience at Landmark, they have all been great.
