Strengths Very reliable so far at 986 hours. I work the hell out of this machine often lifting 800-1500 pound rocks with forks. I have moved many thousands of yards of sand,stone,dirt, logs and plough snow in the winter. I find the air ride seat works very well but the button under the front edge of the seat difficult to get at. I have a 7 foot box scraper which this machine has no trouble pulling on the dirt road to level. I have a wood chipper, water pump for fire fighting, backhoe which works well. This machine has dug up many tree roots and dragged down the road. Roots so big the machine would lift off the ground if not careful. I can say that this machine has been used to its limits many many times and just keeps going without break downs. I do all my own maintenance and find it very easy changing all fluids and filters.
Weaknesses Wish it had a 1000 horses under the hood sometimes but I don't have the money or the want of that big of machine. Lol.
Overall I would buy another but would get one with a cab and heater for the snow ploughing I do.
