Strengths Very Stong and dependable tractor. This tractor carries its weight well without water in the tires. Like having the power overlap of 4 cyl. engine instead of the 3 cyl. engines most other manufacturers put in their tractors. Love the lift capicity! Great ease of use, I was able to teach my wife how to drive this tractor, and operate a bucket, just not all at the same time!! Good turning radius. Just an overall great Heavy tractor, I would buy another one anyday! oh yeah my wife likes the look of the tractor! take that as you wish !
Weaknesses The loader hydraulics could be better and faster. I would like to see a beafer bucket. Would also like to see optional wheel weights, the rear end is to light if you don't have an implement on the rear. Turn signal\ head lamp switch is kinda cheap and doesn't have a good hardy feel to it. Fuel filter is hard to change due to location, but like the security of the filter location. Would like to see a spin on Hydraulic filter. Would also like to see either a metal pitcock coolant drain or a more secure location for the drain.
Overall Great heavy tractor. I done my research before purchasing, and this was the best tractor overall in the 40 horsepower range! And it was cheaper! Unless you like a lot of extra bells and whistles, then the Kabota; but be ready to open your wallet!
