Strengths Great tractor! Only have 30 hours on it but so far no problems. Starts right up, runs smooth and quiet. The hydrostatic is great and the separate forward and reverse pedals make mowing a snap. Turns very tight and lots of power. I have not had any issues with High gear not having enough power as I have read about in other posts. Mows up moderate grades just fine. It may be the extra horsepower the 2720 has over the other models in this size range. I mow about 4 acres and look forward to it every weekend. Also got the 5’ brush hog and the 2720 powers it just fine. The 200cx loader pops on or off in about 1 or 2 minutes. Flip two latches, use the loaders hydraulics to pull it off the support posts, and pop off 4 quick release hydraulic connectors. Very well thought out. The drive over 62” deck is great too. I have a bad back and need to avoid picking up anything heavy. Not having to try and slide the deck under the tractor is a big plus for me. The front snow blade worked great last winter on my 1000’ driveway. With hydraulic angling and lift, it was a breeze to use. I also recommend the iMatch quick hitch which my dealer threw in for free. Makes switching between implements extremely easy.
Weaknesses None really. While I have run into situations where the loader could not lift or dig what I needed to do, it was beyond what it was spec'd to do. This is not a full blown utility tractor and you have to make compromises in this size range. A larger tractor would probably be less agile for mowing which is my primary need. I can move dirt and junk cars, just need to be a little creative in how I do it.
Overall I love this tractor and its the perfect size for my 20 acre homestead. The 0 interest financing for 4 years was a big help.
