Price Paid : $26,500.00
Years of Use : 2-Years
Implements : loader
Purchased From : ky
bought 5740c in 2007. tractor hanled good-- loader easy to use. god visibility and tractor was stable on slopes.
good power for size.
Weaknesses trans tight --shuttle very tight,, shuttle went out in july 2009- dealer I purchased from sent his "mechanic"
who charged me $136.00 to tell me I would have to take to another dealer to get fixed. Took to another dealer on Aug 10--got tractor back in mid november. used 1 hr only to find they left bolt out of 4 wheel assist.. took back to dealer, got back mid december with serious oil leak. I am now the proud owner of a new 7040 Kubota.
took a beating on getting rid of this terrible excuse of a tractor, but enough is enough.
Overall If you want a tractor that looks good being hauled back and forth to dealer, by all means buy a Montana
