Strengths Adjustable hydraulic pump, set mid range, have never blown a hose and has enough power for any task. Gets in tight spaces and doesn't make a mess. Skids logs,moves brush, removes stumps, landscapes: digs well, drainage, sewer, electrical trenches to 7" quickly through pennsylvania mountian ground(90% rocks).
Weaknesses Have extra ball joints on hand and if it squeeks grease it. I do a complete grease every 8hrs of operation. Unless it squeeks then it gets greased right then and there. ALL 50 fittings. Oil 15-40 Rotella every 50hrs. Fuel and Hydraulic filters annully. 32HP Perkins Diesel.
Overall I have had this machine 6yrs. It payed for itself the first summer. Have owned numerous tractors..ect. and for digging and overall versitility the 32HP perkins and the ruggedness of this machine is top quality.
