Like this tractor but have had a few issues with it. Heater coil quit working so cold weather starts are difficult. Hydraulics leak down and I was told that it is a $800.00 repair. Fuel cap leaks fuel when tractor is on a slope and had to put a plastic baggie over the filler neck to stop it.
With that said, I would still buy the tractor as it is a real work horse with the loader.
It has done everything I attempted and living in Kentucky I have some very rough terrain. The frame and rear end is very beefy, the engine quite powerful and with the addition of calcium in the tires the tractor is very stable on slopes.
