Best bid price/features Posted by Jonn Mero on 02/28/2015

Basically a simple, neat little tractor with no newfangled features, but all that you need. Mine has over 180 hours on the clock now, and runs without problems.
The gear linkage could have been better (sloppy), and the shuttle didn't always engage properly. But not a major problem, just annoying.
The reservoir for hydraulic oil could vent a bit better as it will overflow if the FEL is lowered quickly, and especially so if the engine isn't running.
One thing that really impressed me is that the engine oil remained pretty clean, even after over 170 hrs running same oil. Would I buy it again? Definitely!
