My 1st John Deere Tractor! Posted by Tractor Pilot on 04/25/2011

Great compact tractor. Very reliable if operated within its published limitations and maintained according to schedule.

The engine (23-24HP), bucket (1190 lbs @ 18 C 755 lbs @ full height), 3 point (815 lbs), and PTO (20 HP) have adequate power for a tractor of this size.

I have used this tractor on a 5 acre property to plow snow, level the ground, move dirt, redo fencing, and cut the fields with no problems. Tractor has started every time with the first turn of the key. It suits my needs well and I am happy to have purchased it.
