The SC2400 is a great machine if you are "Harry Homeowner" doing very small jobs.
If you intend to move round bales of hay, this machine will not do the job. Loader simply has no guts.
If you intend to use a post hole digger this machine will not do the job. The single hydraulic that lifts the 3pt doesn't have the strength to pull the auger out of the ground after you've dug the hole. I hand dug my auger out 10 times minimum.
The hydrostatic tranny is a waste of engine power. The engine isn't strong enough to push the tractor and use other components simultaneously.
Admittedly, I used my SC2400. I asked it to do tractor work and it simply couldn't do the job. If you want a lawnmower that has a loader for moving a few rocks or light dirt, this is a great machine.
The 60" mower deck cuts grass wonderfully.
I am not impressed by the plastic fenders, hood etc... Lots of money for a "sexy" cool looking little machine.
Overall, know what you want to do. This is not a tractor! This is a lawn mower with umph...
My dealer is/was great. No complaints. Engine vibration rattled and broke the air filter bracket three times. The dealer handled it under warranty with perfection, but the point is that it should never have broken.
