Designed Okay, But It Was Built Poorly. Designed Not to Last! Posted by Bob on 03/14/2013

Maybe this is true with all new utility tractors these days, but this thing was built with really crappy materials. Even the steel seems of poor quality. Hand throttle just broke off in my hand one day. A friend of mine had the same thing happen to his! He wore out the clutch in less than 1000 hours.

I had the dealer guys out three or four times on warranty before it made it to 200 hours. Fuel lines are made of plastic. Hydraulics also seem to overheat. There is no hydraulic cooling unit. That will definitely be a problem with older versions of this tractor so beware!

That said, it drives nice, all the hired hands like driving it. I am about to unload it though before we start getting into any problems with it.
