I recently purchased a C47L from a local dealer. I had been looking for a tractor with this exact transmission option but the other brands that I found were all older and still too expensive and well used.
The number one reason I bought this tractor was the price. I am somewhat partial to JD or Case but as far as quality, I think they are comparable and the more I become familiar with it the more I like the choice I made.
There may be a few minor things on the more popular branded tractors as far as ergonomics that are better but really the only thing that hasn't been to my liking is the seat. After looking in to why it rides so rough I found that the adjustable spring ride seat is seized up probably due to its lack of use since it was new.
I have been around tractors since I was young and used several different brands, and as far as I can tell its as good as any other tractor with a much better price tag!
