Bought it new and used it to mow 100 acres weekly for three years, quit the mowing business and bought a "Woods" front loader bucket and a Gannon blade for the rear have used it as my diesel wheel borrow around my home since.
It has performed flawlessly even after sitting for three years without being started.
The only problem I recently had was with the hydraulics.
Not realizing there were two drain plugs I was only draining the transmission oil and changing the filter, the rear end sump accumulated a sludge and plugged the filter that =
Drained the complete system and flushed it with diesel fuel(didn't start or run it)shook the tractor to slosh the fuel around in the trans and differential, drained thoroughly and refilled with oil changed filter and Wha La back in business.
If I were to do it again I'd buy two and give one to my wife.
Love my little "diesel" wheel borrow.
