Me and Daddy farmed with this tractor until he died eleven years ago. We used it for hay, corn and gardening. We truck farmed peas and watermelons.
Since then I have used it to plant most of my half of the farm in pine trees. This year my sister has even stopped using the tractor to make hay. She sold her cows. She and I use it for mowing and small scale gardening.
Now the biggest workout it gets is bush hogging a parking area and the road going into our camp on Ten Mile Creek every summer before our family reunion.
Other than a little recent trouble with the lift, it has given us no problems.
The hours is just a guess. The odometer broke at 785 hours not long after we bought the tractor. If I had to bet, I would say it was less.
