Strengths I was amazed at the power and the hydro trany is great,select hi,med,lo gear using the clutch then don't have to use clutch again. Just the forward pedal with toe and rev pedal with heel. Turns on a dime, power steering works great. I've been removing brush with it and in four wheel drive it can really push the big stuff over plus the high reach of bucket lets you knock dead branches off trees so no chain saw work. Looks really well made and I didn't see a lot of cheap crap on it. Mine is a 2005 got demo with 30 hrs on it.
Weaknesses I'm 6'1" and have a bad right knee and seat sat so low I couldn't comfortable raise leg high enough to clear pedals. I took some 1 3/4" plastic blocks and drilled holes in them and raised seat up it took care of problem. There is a heel pedal on left side for locking rear end in, and I keep pushing it down by accident and mine had no return spring to pull it up. I built a chain box and it sits under pedal so that problem is solved.
Overall I love this tractor and after using it all day I'm not tired. No more shifting just slide foot back and forth to set direction of travel.
