What I think about my FarmTrac 680 farm tractor Posted by Dave Davidson on 03/11/2010

At first, I was led to believe "this" tractor would be just about ALL I wanted. Fact: first thing, the "tach" would never settle down. Time after time, I would voice my complaint about this issue, but, the dealer would never resolve the complaint. FINALLY, after all the frustration, complaining, phone calls to the company, I got no where. After "about" six years - I learned of a man who could FIX this complaint. Here is what he told me in the first 5-minutes: WRONG GENERATOR installed at the factory. Secondly, this was the cause of BATTERY FAILURE. At my cost I installed a new ALTERNATOR with a built-in Voltage Regulator. Next, installed a NEW BATTERY. Cost $550.00. Solved all my electrical problems. Tach finally settles down - all the lights work! Would I buy another one of these tractors? NO!
