Price Paid : $25,000.00
Years of Use : 2-Years
Implements : chipper, brush cutter, blade, york, loader, forks, rock bucket,
Purchased From : Big Boys Toys, Pomfret, CT
Strengths Easy starting, plenty of power for brush cutters, chippers and lifting heavy loads. This machine is the best of any compact I have owned. I have had it two years with a couple of problems that were addressed by the dealer, Big Boys Toys in a very prompt and professional manner.
Weaknesses Hydraulic connections for front end loader are mounted beneath the floor level and are easily damaged or disconnected by debris under the tracts such as pieces of branches or brush. Very bad positioning, but I notice on some of the newer models the connections are moved above the floor pan. Pins on the shifter tend to work loose and have to be driven to shift properly.
Overall Excellent machine and I would recommend.
