I purchased the ct 230 to add update my Massey something which was about 30hp utility tractor. I wanted hydro and mid size compact HP. I can mow with a 5' older rotary mower without issue, plow with a 12" triple moldboard and use a 5' tiller without problems.
The R4 tires suck, always full of mud and the battery spilling issue was never properly resolved by bobcat. Overall I like the machine and would re-buy after having side by side work done with neighbors JD 2305 and in laws Kubota 30hp something..
