Purchased From :
Strengths $X$ with a GM loader. Great little tractor. Runs all day on a tank of diesel. Works way harder than its size. Great for work in the woods because it is easy to get around in tight places. Does a good job plowing an cutting . Good gear range for pulling or moving on. Easy to work on for the most part. Easy to haul on single axle trailer although a double axle would be better.
Weaknesses It is fairly light so it will spin some in high range but I have not stuck it yet after shifting to one of the lower gears. All labels on mine are Japanese so its just trial and error till you learn it. It has a small radiator screen that will clog when mowing seed heads after 2-3 hours; have to clean it or it will run hot. Although I have run it hot (per light on dash) several times and have had no ill effects; I just stop for a while and clean the screen and she's ready to go again. Parts where not easy to find initially but that seems to be getting a little better.
Overall For what I need which is working on ten acres and cutting trails and bush hogging at deer camp this is a great little machine. It had about 7000 hours on it when I bought it and I have used it for 10 years with little maintenance other than oil and lube. One of the front wheels has a leak at the axle seal now that I probably should get fixed.
