Price Paid : $13,500.00
Years of Use : New Owner (0-1 Year)
Implements : Roto-tiller, post auger, FEL
Purchased From : Rickreall Farm Supply
Strengths Only 44" wide with turf tires makes it easy to get through gates. FEL bucket is perfect size. I like the reverse exhaust. I roto-tilled about 1/4 acre yesterday with little effort. There's a reason why August is not "National Post Hole Month"... I had to wet these down overnight, but then they went fine.
Weaknesses Very minor. Brake pedal is too close to forward HST. When I go to set the brake hard, I hit the forward HST. Needs a toolbox or bin to store stuff...my cup holder overfloweth. Hydraulic levers should each have a distinctive feel so that they can be operated without looking. I kind of wanted a trenching attachment, but having a hard time finding one.
Overall This is certainly powerful enough to do anything that I need to do. I got my old lady to let me have this tractor based on saving my back... I now know that I am still going to break my back -- I'll just get more work done while doing it :-)
