First Tractor Posted by Larry on 08/06/2012

Purchased the unit with backhoe attachment, land pride box blade and 54" mowing deck.

This unit had a rear valve issue from the beginning that caused the rear 3-point to leak down quickly (30 seconds to the ground from full up). Took a while to get it fixed, but has been operating normally since repaired.

Unfortunately, I do not have any previous experience with other tractors to draw any comparisons. It gets the job done for the most part. I wish it had just a little more power when digging with backhoe. it's a little cumbersome in heavy clay and attempting to pull stubborn stumps.

The deck is really nice, cuts very even and super quiet.

Overall, it's a little pricey but I would purchase again. It has enabled me to do a lot this summer in a short amount of time.
