Great For 4 Acres Posted by Bob Ziesmer on 02/01/2012

This Iseki Tractor has proved itself time and time again. The 3 speed transmission coupled with the 3 speed Range and 2 speed Creep give 18 ratios for the perfect gearing for any job.

With 4 wheel drive and a differential lock, the only way to stop it is to bottom out the chassis on a berm. (Don't ask how I know, had to see what it would do)

The front bucket is handy, but lacks serious power coming off the original pump. I use both a blade and mower on the rear with no problems.

The one MUST HAVE addition is a PTO overrun clutch for mowing. The mower will push the tractor a long way without it. In close quarters it takes heavy braking to stop the tractor before the mower winds down. The clutch ran about $50, and was worth every penny to reduce brake and gear train wear.

A very good purchase decision!
