Farm Pro 2430 overview Posted by Doug Jowell on 09/22/2011

My first tractor experience, so impressions could be considered naive. 30 hp x 4wd ... performs well for small farm application, but be aware of limitations to single point deep plow, 3 row cultivator, etc. Previous owner only used grease gun where physically convenient.

FEL and steering... replaced seals in all pistons.
Steering - replaced 'knuckles'
3 point lift ... leaks at arms, position drifts down.
Electrical - no work lights, fuel gauge, ammeter. Don't trust other gauges. 30 amp fuse blows after starting.

ITEM INFORMATION
Model year: 2003 Date Purchased: 06/23/2010 Number of Hours: 387
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Strong enough for small farm. Cons: A lot of 'small' conveniences are problems. Parts are only online and distant. Service manuals cryptic, hard to follow, and don't give 'how-to'. No hands-on' advice nearby. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: United States Texas I also considered buying: John Deere 5055E
