Years of Use : 180-Days
Implements : 6' Heavy duty box blade, shredder, tiller
Purchased From : Texas
Strengths I purchased the MX5100 4X4 new with almost all the accessories the last week of december 2009, wheel weights, canopy, front and rear lights, loader quick hitch, 3 rear remotes, 3rd function loader valve, R-4 tires, swinging draw bar, this tractor is unreal, lots of power, the loader and 3 point can handle just about anything I've put on it round bales, dirt work, great turning radius, flat deck, easy controls, can go in and out of anywhere, have a hydraulic toplink and works great for the pitch of the box blade, or tiller. All sheet metal contruction (hood and fenders) not plastic.
Weaknesses The pto lever is in a bad location, but it's better than having to grind the pto into gear, wish the steering wheel would tilt, rear remote levers are too close together, guzzles fuel bigtime, tool box too small and bad location, R-4 tires are only 6 ply.
Overall This is a very nice tractor, the strengths definately outweigh the weaknesses which are more of a luxury than a necessity. Perfect size for an all around tractor. Financing was 0% at the time, and the dealers won't tell you is that you can buy the interest down to 0%, will save you a couple of hundred dollars in the long run. Also buy at the end of the year, you'll get great discounts and rebates.
