Price Paid : $21,000.00
Years of Use : 2+ Years
Purchased From : Joplin Farm & Lawn
Strengths Plenty of power, starts easily in cold weather,
Weaknesses Do they not put fluid in the rear tires anymore? The rear of the tractor is so light, that it's a problem. Pick up a bale of hay with the front end loader, and if you have any kind of grade to climb on wet soil...you ain't makin' it! Also, had to have the service department fix the individually powered lift arms on the loader...when an implement is not attached, one will respond faster than the other...this creats a problem sometimes hooking up bale fork or loader bucket.
Overall A great tractor for small time farmer/rancher who is going to use a front-end loader and feeds a few cows/horses. Would easily run an 8' Brush Hog if not in 2" sprouts. Buying weights or filling tires with fluid is an absolute must!
