After a year of using this machine I feel confident in writing an objective review. Overall, a very satisfactory little tractor. I have the cab, box blade, snow plow and loader as well. Strong performance for what I need.
I had a hydro JD once, but traded up to a larger JD because I needed the power. Soon found out that bigger isn't better for every situation. Spoiled, I HAD to get another hydro for the small jobs.
The only real mechanical issue was a blown O ring in the hydraulic assembly underneath. Dealership fix; no further problems. The one thing I wish it had is larger rear tires. When I think "Front Wheel Assist" I feel you shouldn't have to run the MFWD all the time.
A comparable 2wd tractor would have 28" rear tires, not 24". Also, these models require a little break in time to loosen up before you get maximum performance; otherwise a great little tractor.
