Strengths REVIEW CONTINUED FROM DECEMBER 27, 2008, almost 2 years later and he is my point of view. Well i use the mower alot as i cut 15 acres of grass with it about every 10 days, and the loader and backhoe gets used just as much. It is a strong little tractor and will do big tractor things but just take alot longer, i ran a 4 foot tiller and it worked freakin great but i tried running a land pride 5 foot finishing mower and the tractor would start to overheat.
Weaknesses If there are big to medium sized roots you better bring a chainsaw but cause the backhoe will just sit there doing nothing, but you can break them up by chopping away at them with the teeth on the bucket. I broke both the hood tabs that hold the hood down (Due to rattling) and a O-ring started leaking just the other day but luckily it will only cost me about 3 dollars to fix,,i will say that i maintain my little tractor and wash it after every use but i do use it like a freaking tank, so really this thing is holding up great.
Overall Definately would buy again cause like i say i use it like a bulldozer, it is expensive though. I am going to sell it though and get a Kubota 326, and a Kubota L45 next year. Things the Kubota needs are: Grapple for front bucket, and for the rear, and bucket forks.
