AC 6140 Dependable Posted by Dick on 02/02/2013

Purchased for site work in building a house and also small timber jobs for removal of logs and firewood. Has done well.

This is a 4WD unit. While logging I have a Farmi 3 pt winch mounted and together they perform well. I bought a set of rear chains, but honestly they are not needed in most circumstances.

Only problem I have had with the unit is to replace the water pump once. The repair shop was able to get the part, although this is a Japanese made orphan.
Also the shifting is a bit rough.
