I purchased this tractor in 2010 after going through many winters here in Minnesota freezing my butt off on a tractor without a cab. We had a snow storm at Christmas time that year and my wife was on call at the local hospital. I spent almost 40 hrs on my old John Deere 770 without a cab just keeping the road and driveway open so that she could get back and forth to the hospital. She was the only lab tech that could get to the hospital that wasn't stranded by the storm. It was my wife that suggested I get a tractor with a cab, bless her heart.
After looking at several dealers I was dismayed that no one offered a small tractor with a cab. All the dealers around here have large tractors with cabs, but I needed a small tractor that would fill my needs, and not have to spend big bucks.
I love this little tractor. It is perfect for everything that I do around my 28 acres. I have a snow blower, a rock box, an angle blade, 60 inch brush mower, loader with bucket and pallet forks.
The cab has a great heater and air conditioning. Bobcat really put some thinking into this tractor, it is designed very well. Good visibility and easy controls make any job I do very enjoyable from snow blowing to mowing to grading the road. I am saddened to hear that Bobcat is discontinuing making tractors.
