Price Paid : $0.00
Years of Use : 180-Days
Implements : Belly mower, loader, snow blower
Purchased From :
Strengths Nice sized, nice looking little tractor. Nicely placed bucket loader hydraulic levers. Lots of nice options: 4 wd, pwr steering
Weaknesses No hydrostatic transmission, stop n go shifting.
Clutch mysteriously "out of adjustment" after 24 hours use.
Leaks all over the place from undetermined sources on tractor, looks like one leak is hydraulic from 3 point hitch raise lower lever but no way to tighten anything.
Sometimes just won't start, just clicks like a switch isn't made or something, then all of a sudden it turns over. Never been sure exactly what I've done to start it when it's done that.
High range reverse is too fast for snow blower and low range reverse is too slow.
Strange noise from hydraulic pump when unloaded.
Only one year warranty, pretty worried bout what'll happen after that now, thought something new would last at least five years before anything major. Learning my lesson.
Dealer is pretty sketchy, probably the most "unfriendly" people I've ever done business with. Not even a handshake after purchase. Better business bureau endorsements all over the walls in showroom, seems little to back it up.
They needed my owners manual when I took it in to get clutch serviced on warranty the first time.
No journeyman mechanic on staff.
Overall Bad decision to buy, 10k$ compromise between what I would have paid between this and North American brand. Time will tell how much I lose.
