Price Paid : $0.00
Years of Use : 180-Days
Implements : la304 front end loader, 54" snow blower, 60" rear blade
Purchased From : Quebec Canada
Strengths Engine pulls very strong, lots of torque. 3 speed hydrostatic transmision is great,loader controls well placed and a pleasure to work with. Power steering is smooth and demands no effort at all. Unplugged cold starts are impressive.
Weaknesses The reverse peddle is a bit of a pain to use when using a rear snowblower and your turned to look behind, you kind of have to twist your heel to stay on the peddle. The other thing is the 1/4 inching hydrolic control, at low rpm's no problem but a pto speeds the quick lift option is quite rough. Using brakes is a two feet operation.
Overall I use this tractor mostly to blow snow and so far it has exceeded all my expectations, its light weight,ease of use,good horsepower has made a usually boring task into a "can't wait till it snows" kind of task.Now the wife and I have arguments to see who will use it and believe me that never happened with the tractor I had before.
