Get What You Pay For Posted by Ian Bray on 06/11/2016

Yep, International Machinery Traders are not the best. However when I first bought the tractor they had a really good service manager and I got a lot of help in the first few months. He moved on and so did the company.

Tractor World was the next to start up selling the Fotons same owner, new name, beware.

The tractor has done 435 hours with no major problems. I have just completed a 400 hour service and everything us working okay, although the clutch travel needs adjusting and I have run out of travel on the rod so will have to go into the housing.

The hydraulics are fine, not like a John Deere, but okay for my work. It's agricultural but pretty sturdy and so far so good - hasn't caused me any major problems.

It has plenty of power - the four in one bucket is great for moving timber and clearing land. The power take-off works fine on slasher.

Apart from the dealer, I'd recommend the Foton 504, for light to medium farm duties.
