Price Paid : $26,000.00
Years of Use : 2+ Years
Implements : 15' Modern Batwing, 6' Modern Boxblade, 8' Athens Tandem Disk
Purchased From : Lansdowne-Moody (Houston)
Strengths Maneuvers easily, strong loader, easy access for maintenance
Weaknesses These newer utility tractors CANNOT work thier wieght out of slick grass. Previously owned older model 2WD w/ less HP. Older machine can get around mud without getting stuck. Very dissapointed with the 2WD model. It is very light and easily gets stuck. Fair weather tractor only. I have widened the tires on front-end and filled rear tires with H2O - no help. Dealership advised me that 6800 (60 HP) was enough for 15' batwing - WRONG. It is in shop now getting PTO repaired (hopefully under warranty). Will have to make arrangements for 4WD tractor - may or may not be Kubota. Dealership not available for good service. Athens disk has already broke 2 blades the 2nd time I put it to use.
Overall 2WD not a very good choice for slightly muddy terrain or wet grass.
