Price Paid : $0.00
Years of Use : 2-Years
Implements : 1580 backhoe, Wallenstein Log winch, brush hog, 2 bottom plow
Purchased From : local dealer
Strengths -Engine has very good power
-very maneuverable, I use it in the woods a lot
-the 1580 backhoe is a good unit, I am very happy with it.
Weaknesses -Small Fuel Tank
-3 point hitch needs more grease fittings
-loader valve in bad place, I always hit it with my right knee.
-a Pain to bleed air out of the hydraulics after doing a service, the pump doesn't have a bleed screw, just a solid plug
-no draft control
Overall It has a few shortcomings but I am very happy with it. A comparable kubota would have cost me $4000 more. It does everything I ask it to.
