This is the best small tractor ever built!
This is not a big tractor, but for me its perfect. I bush hogged twenty acres, cleared graded land for two houses. used it for landscaping, and used it for back filling everything!!!
It's a work horse. I looked at trading it a few years ago but the new tractors just don't have the feel or power this one does. The tag reads FORD NEW HOLLAND built in Japan. The service manager at local New Holland dealer says built in 1992.
I purchased it around 2002 , Most of my friends, as well as 90% of North Carolina, is John Deer country, however all that have used it say that's the best , strongest small tractor they have ever seen. The only problems ever : rebuilt starter, replace muffler, and a front drive leak that I have not fixed yet.
