I bought a cub 7284 in April of 2013. When I test drove it at the dealer the PTO acted weird. Salesman says you just wasn't in the correct position. Got it home (not a short drive). The PTO wont work at all, and the 4x4 don't work.
So I take a long drive back to the dealer 2 weeks later. I get the cc back and dealer tells me that's just the way the 4x4 works, it will kick in but you have to be stuck---say what? The cows may come and go but the bull goes on forever!
So I use the tractor another week and know the PTO is leaking out the rear shaft, the left front axle shaft is leaking, diff lock don't work, and the 4x4 it might work most likely not.
