Years of Use : 1-year
Implements : front-end loader, backhoe, and 60" mower (never used)
Purchased From :
Strengths Nothing outrageous, but fairly easy to use. Can only compare the front end loader power to that of an old 20hp JD and it is about the same. But I like the lower ride. Have not tested the tipability, thank goodness. Handles a 7' backhoe rather well just off the hydraulic system. Attachment ease looks easy, but have not tried them yet.
Weaknesses Battery just died in 2.5 years. Hate the reverse pedal (keep hitting the lock for the loader). Don't like the machine moving when I forget to tap the brakes to unlock them (hard on brake pads). Owners manual not very good. The unit actually has less horsepower than its predecessor, the 2910?
Overall It is fine for what I got it for so far. Could not afford a little more HP model, so I am not as hyped as others. Takes me a while to dig out stumps and it will be a slow process to dig out a hill of clay/shale, it at all. Would also have liked a longer backhoe (7').
