Strengths When working the tractor handles well, strong and ergo friendly. Regular maintenance easy to accomplish.
Weaknesses At approx 180 hours the front axel housing failed, split. requiring tear down and repair. Under warranty, no problems there. However, at 500 hours the transmission began freezing up. Two weeks in the shop and it was determined that the pinon bearing and shaft had failed. The needle berings on the gear faild. as confirmed by the tech working on the tractor the was no abuse to the tractr what so ever. The bearings had to have been defective. Apparently this 500 hour mark is all the maufacturer counts on the transmission to last as no compensation nor consideration was given for the cost of the repair. Whatever savings I may have recieved by this purchase was definately ineffectual.
Overall Low marks due to dealer, manufacturer for not taking any responsibility for the failed parts and cost of repair. As soon as this one is sold, no more. $600 for hired replacement during repairs, in addition to repairs and transportaion.
