Strengths Heavy duty for its h.p. It does anything I ask within reason. It has always started very well even in subzero temps. Easy to use with hydro drive and with front end loader, 4wd is a great help and with diff. lock and in 4wd it is very powerful. I have moved snow from my driveways with loader and boxblade, tons and tons of rocks and dug 12" holes for 40' retaining wall with the phd just above idle, spread 4 - 4 axle dump truck loads of gravel for a new drive and built pad for a new 10 by 16 garden shed. It has hauled loads of firewood and anything else it is asked. It has a 3 pt. log splitter and runs it with ease. It is the best powered wheelbarrow (;>) I have ever used and is soon to be used to haul logs out of the woods. It has paid for half the cost paid new in work not farmed out. Only trouble , it came with bent lift arm which was replaced immediatly by dealer and has had o-ring on joystick for fel replaced. I now am coming up on 150 hrs and no other trouble so far. I am looking foward to many years of good service and fun out of my 'Little Mule'
Weaknesses haven't found any yet. for its size, it is great
Overall Good looking, well built, heavy duty, easy to operate and comfortable. built by Mitsubishi in Japan. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another except for dealer. He just stopped selling them.
