Price Paid : $2,399.00
Years of Use : Test Drive
Implements : 46" Dozer Blade
Purchased From : Tractor Supply Store
Strengths High back seat with arm rests (standard), plenty of power (27HP), very smooth ride, 54" deck (makes quick work of my 1 1/2 acre yard), cruise control, 12V power outlet, drink holder, Bright headlights, Automotive style lug nuts, mower doesn't seem like it has to work hard even in deep grass!, ease of use.
Weaknesses Front tires are 15", I feel they should be 16" on a tractor this big. Small glitch in one headlight socket easily repaired by me at no cost (I had to bend a small contact tab straight).
Overall Overall I am very pleased with this tractor.I have owned two John Deere Garden tractors and I feel this tractor compares very well with them. I did an extensive comparison before my purchase and had fully expected to own a third John Deere. I just couldn't pass on the price and features offered by this tractor. I got my tractor and a 46" dozer blade (which I have used extensively on a landscaping project in my back yard) For $2,700 total, and I am very pleased so far.
