Strengths Smooth running, fairly quiet, nice looking rubber floor mat, knobs and handles. Push button pto engage with soft engage option is nice.
Weaknesses Problems Problems Problems.....owned six months (100 hours), been in the shop 3 times. (wet) Brakes SOMEHOW squeel when applied in reverse. Hydraulic pump, lines, filter and filter manifold have all been replaced. Hydraulic pump sputters making loader and 3 point shake and bounce around while in use. Dealer states many units come in doing this for routine maintenance but their owners appearently don't mind it or know any better.I could go on.....
Overall If you see and 1500 series Iseki built Massey tractor that catches your eye......keep driving. I tried to trade this unit back in at the same dealer for a 543 massey and was offered $5000 less than I paid six months earlier. (it's immaculate) I owned two Kioti tractors before this one with no problems on either. Both had great trade in value as well.
