Price Paid : $14,300.00
Years of Use : New Owner (0-1 Year)
Implements : Woods RD7200 Finishing Mower, 5ft Box Blade
Purchased From : E.S. VOELKER
Strengths Power, Open Platform, eHydro peformance, MFWD
Weaknesses Steering Wheel Not Sturdy & you need to purchase so many optional items before you can hookup a Mid Mount Mower.
Overall I bought this on a dealer close-out. It had 2 hours and tractor list $20,560 (32hp, 4wd, ehydro, dual SVC, cruise, Turf tires and so on). I picked this one up for $14,300.
As a user of gear shift for a number of years, I was sceptical of the ehydro. Even after the purchase was made, I had buyers remorse. Finally after weeks of deciding what to do - I hook my 72" finishing mower and started using the tractor.
After an hour of usage, I realized this ehydro is worth every penny. I can control that mower with pinpoint accuracy. You do lose approx 2hp from the eshifter model - however you have more efficient use of your available horsepower.
