It's Alright...Just Not What You Might Expect from John Deere Posted by Perry Mason on 11/12/2013

I'm a little down on this tractor for a few minor reasons:
1) The "arms" for the front end loader function independently.They are always out of time. They shear pins frequently. I finally installed steel bolts where the original little pins were and problem solved.

2) Have had the pressure relief under the seat for the 3-point lift replaced twice already. Finally, JD set it so it can't go all the way up with a brush-hog on it. It hasn't given me any problems since.

3) Tractor is a 2-wheel drive and doesn't have enough weight to do a good job pulling. Had both rear tires filled with fluid and problem solved. $125 per tire.
