Price Paid : $17,250.00
Years of Use : 1-2 Years Use
Implements : 60" HD QA FEL, CCM M-160 (58") Tiller, Tebben MD 60" Rotary Cutter, Woods 96" Landscape Rake
Purchased From : Dalton Tractor Company (MA)
Strengths Good power (29HP/23.6PTO HP) for size (L=106" w/o FEL, W=54.3", H= ~90" w ROPS/FOPS), weight (~3000#'s w weighted rear R-1's), and footprint (63"X54.3"). Good and protected ground clearance @ ~13". Relatively manuverable with 96+" turning radius. Good hydraulics (12.7 GPM Total, 5.1 Steering/7.6 Implement). Good 3PH lift 1635#'s @ 24" and loader lift 1596#'s @ bucket. The operator's platform is ergonomically designed and the curved boom loader arms paired with the sloped hood provide great visability during operation.
Weaknesses The differential lock is difficult to lock and at times it is difficult to shift between the 3 speed HST ranges.
Overall It is a great Class II tractor that seems more powerful than the stated specification data.
