Great Versatile Tractor Posted by Craig Simon on 06/09/2017

I have had this tractor for 24 years now. It came with the house and I would not know what to do without it. It is the right size for many things.

As soon as I bought it, I purchased a loader for it which has also been invaluable. I use it for grading, landscaping, mowing (rough and finish cut), lifting, dirt handling, garden tilling, raised bed creation, work platform, mowing and raking hay, moving things, plowing snow, etc.

I have FWA with diamond tread high flotation rear tires and R4 front tires. I have never been stuck and I do not make tracks even on a wet lawn. It has been to the shop once since I have had it. It failed to start for me one time at -20 Fahrenheit (a rare temperature for our area).

Negatives - I wish it had a little more hydraulic flow so the loader would be a little faster. A more standard drawbar would also be nice for pull type power take-off implements.

All of my kids have learned to drive on it.
