5065E Posted by Geoker on 04/07/2013

Good simple, strong tractor, kind of like they all used to be. Mine is a 2WD without loader. It has plenty of power, and in fact is a little light for its power.

I have water in the tires and have found that even with differential lock, when pulling up a small tree, I can not pull a larger tree with it than I can with my 1952 John Deere Model A, which sometimes will wrinkle the tires a bit before spinning. You only pull till you spin.

Reverse and 2nd have synchro in all ranges, but shifting to other gears often requires slowing to idle from bush hogging rpm, and having a little patience to avoid grinding. It's really too new to make any reliability statement. The Model A, now THAT is reliable!
