Great Little Workhorse Posted by Jason Laughon on 01/06/2012

Lacks some of the bells and whistles you find on many newer machines such as power steering, power brakes and a three point hitch which stays put when using a boom. However the simplicity and weight of the machine makes the power options almost un-needed, and the position control can be retro fitted for about $25.

Can be tough to start when the temperature is below 20 degrees and a rollover protection bar is difficult to add, so be careful. All in all, still my favorite tractor. Make sure to convert to 12 volt and add water and wheel weights to the front tires.
