Strengths Works well and with finess it will do almost any job from pulling stumps to drainage ditches.
Weaknesses One of the problems I have had, in two years I have had to replace three hoses due to dry rot. Two other hoses were repaired for a split crimp nut and the other was repaired when a large rock dropped on a stabilizer fitting and snapped it of(my fault).
Overall Very satisfied with the product , if you have the time to work with big stumps it normally is taking between 30 minutes and hour to get them out. I have the Woods mounted to a 45HP 4WD KIOTI tractor, stumps I can not knuckle up with the backhoe are eaisly pushed with the tractor. I now have ~ 100 hours on the machine and have moved 3 ton roks with it with finess.
