Years of Use : 180-Days
Implements : A light trailor
Purchased From : henton and chattall
Strengths hasn't got any.
Weaknesses Where do i start, the front axle is the same as the jd4010 which makes it very light on the front.The hand brake is in the most awkward place, i can hardly reach it, in fact i kick it off. The spool valves are situated just right to get coverd in any water and mud that get thrown up by the wheels. It doesn't have a seperate spool block for any front mounted impliments, and have to swap pipes that operate the rear mounted at this one block, which means muck gets in and damages the seals. You can't have both operating at the same time, which isn't very pratical. Only two gear ranges[its a hst]. Ihe hydrolics are week, can only lift 650kg and only tow 800kg unbraked. Other compacts of smaller hp can lift far more and tow double. In fact the framework holding the drawbar snapped. Although this is a 32hp tractor, treat it as a 22hp. It is so light weight, and i haven't mentioned the vibrtion in the steering. We could have got a mf1528 for the same price and i so wish we had.
Overall Don,t buy one, its the worst compact i,ve come across. Its put together with one thing in mind, the biggest profit margin deere can make. They should be reported to trading standards for using the word quality to desribe anything about this tractor
