I only have used the tractor twice to remove snow and have been busy finishing a shed to keep it in. So far I like the fit and finish and the 32spd auto reverser transmission. Exhaust vibrates some at certain engine RPM's. Love the sound of the engine which is quite smooth for a 4 cyl. Will post updates as I put more hours on it.
I am anxious to try out the econ PTO on my new 8' Land Pride Shredder this Spring. I have been around a lot of JD's in my life beginning with JD GP's, B's, A's, G's, D's, 60, 4010, 4020, 4450, and now the 5105M.
