Purchased From :
Strengths I was concerned that this little tractor was too small and light weight for my 5 acres, but I am very happy now that I've used it for 20 hours. Our lot is wooded and the belly mower works great around the trees. I was able to take off and reattach the front loader in about 15 minutes on the first try. It can only get better from here.
Weaknesses The front loader is rated at,I believe, 700 lbs. It doesn't have great breakaway strength when I'm trying to scoop up dirt or heavy mulch. About as good as can be expected, I guess.
Overall Overall I'm very happy so far. I only have 20 hours on it, about half cutting grass the other half playing with mulch, dirt, logs, brushhogging and tilling. I forgot to mention above that the tiller is excellent. It turned and all day project with an old troybilt walkbehind into about a 1 hour, no sweating required, ride in the park!
