I found the tractor well made and thought out. One only needs minimal tools to work on it. Filters are washable and easy to get at.
I have a 72" snow blower on the rear of the tractor and it has no problem chewing through mountains of snow. I only needed to put on tire chains. It does not have a loader, but one can be added.
Diesel fuel. No problems starting, I do not plug it in and only once had to use the glow plug. It is stored in an attached unheated garage.
