Have had tractor 17 yrs now, not many hrs. and only a few issues. Mostly used for mowing pulling a 6ft. woods finish mower. Love the power steering and 4wd. Finally had to replace front turf tires after 16 yrs. still on original rears. Also have 5ft. rear scraper blade, 5ft. King Kutter tiller.
Just talked to the Deere dealer about a loader, says a 300 loader bolts right on $4000. Seems kinda steep but getting to old to do it all by hand. Has only failed to start 1 time bad battery cable. I really like this tractor did a lot of investigating before purchasing. Probably have forever to expensive to buy again. Greens been a great color for me.
