Strengths Have used it 500 hours and no problems. Usually use it in 2nd gear, HST is absolutely wonderful. Cleaned out 3 feet of mud from 4 ponds, it is a super mudder. ( I use weighted industrial tires, liquid, and wheel weights). Pulls large blck jack oaks right out of the ground. Put fork lifts on the bucked with a grabber and can carry brush piles or good sized trees and stack them.
Weaknesses HST in second whined going up hills while carrying a heaping load of dirt up a 100 yard hill for about the first 70 hours of use. Dealer told me it was normal, and it quieted by 75 hours.
Overall It is an absolute work horse. It took me a while to notice there was an adjustment on the seat so that I could adjust it to my weight for comfort. Very comfortable and much easier to use than any John Deer, or others I have used. I am 68 years old, 225 lbs. and work by myself most times. I don't know how you could find a more reliable and hardworking compact tractor. A larger tractor will do more big jobs, but they get harder to load and move from job to job. I have aux hydraulics front and rear for all the extra implements I use.
