Years of Use : Test Drive
Implements : Just a test drive, not purchased
Purchased From : Not purchased
Strengths Low price, lots of features for the money.
Weaknesses VERY bad ergonomics. Remotes were controlled by levers UNDER your leg!?! 3pt controls were very long throw, you need gorilla arms to operate them. Loader bucket and QA attachment were crude and seemed like they forgot to finish some of the welds. Big tractors should have flat floors, this has a big hump in the floor. Plastic is cheap looking too.
Overall I tested several Montanas and all where crude, heavy and poorly layed out. These tractors are modern built machines that remind me a lot of a 1980's tractor. I liked 1980's JD 20 years ago, but I expect a LOT more today. Absolutely lacking in details and refinements.
