Price Paid : $17,987.00
Years of Use : 1-year
Implements : FEL, 54D mmm, post hold auger, forks
Purchased From : Ballwig turf and leasure, Beaver Dam WI
Strengths Works great all the way around. Mowing the the 54D deck does not scalp around my mound system and is able to stay at full power (in low gear at full speed) all the way up my 1 acre hill. FEL is the most useful attachment I have ever owned, use it for snow, mulch, dirt, gravel. I also purchased a set of pallet forks and use them for many many things as well. Good on fuel, always starts even in - Wisconsin temps. I have R4 tires and they are not to hard on my lawn, even with the rear tires loaded whit fluid. Post hold digger on the 3 point with a 12" bit digs with the tractor at Idle! very powerful machine.
Weaknesses The fuel tank is on top of the hood and I spill fuel every time! Low gear could be geared a bit higher to get the tractor to 5.5mph while mowing. It also could use a temp gauge on the dash. The hydro outlets leak with the FEL attached,
Overall Great tractor, I enjoy it very much and it is much higher quality then other brands. Also resale in the best in the biz if you would every sell the tractor, just try and buy a used one?
