Strengths Loader and Traction - this thing bites into a pile of dirt effortlessly, the bucket size is well matched to the tractor power, in fact if, like me, you're not moving stone/sand, you can go bigger and still be happy.
Handles side hills well with the industrial tires.
Weaknesses Too slow on the hills - in other words needs a 3-range HST
(could be just my unit) PTO is noisy with the clutch in, I tended to drop the pto out instead.
(opinion) You probably don't want this one if you want to do finishing mowing - this tractor is MUCH heavier than competitors.
Overall Bottom line, this tractor can actually do everything I need, and is offered at a fantastic price. If you don't have much slope I'm sure you'll be happy. I have some pretty steep areas, so I chose to step up to the CK30 instead primarily for the increased speed - i.e., to save time
