Haven't had any trouble out of my 284 since purchase! Very hard working tractor! Recently the fuel pump went out and i can't find a replacement at a decent price! So I am going to put an electric fuel pump on it! It handles my 6' bush
hog just fine and pulls downed trees out of the woods real good! I need a fuel pump for it, if anyone has one or knows where I can get one! and also a caster wheel for my bush hog efm-600! All in all its been a good tractor! I love it!
