an oldie but a goodie Posted by Don Mitchell on 08/05/2010

The only problem this tractor has is it's age. It is no longer supported by the manufacture which I think was bought out by New Holland. Not too many parts are available for it. It was made in Japan for Ford which could very well be the reason for the problem with parts.

It however does work very well and does all I need it to do. It came with a belly mower that does a great job and every thing works as it should. I did just have to replace the alternator which I found at Grimm's Repair in Brenham TX #979-836-2521. Other than the parts issue, it's a great little tractor in the 25hp class. The three stars for value is because of the parts issue.
