Great Tractor, Just Too Complicated for the Average Homeowner Posted by Nodamidis on 04/23/2013

This tractor gets the job done on our property. There are a lot of useful implements for it: mowing deck, snow plow, snow blower, front end loader, aerator, utility cart, etc. It has enough horsepower to get through anything with ease.

My one really big gripe about it involves the complexity of it, especially when using the implements. Many of them are heavy, requiring two people to move and position.

Also, the instructions are incomprehensible to the average homeowner. There is a lot of jargon and the pictures included with the instructions are often difficult to see because they are in black and white and generally are not crisp.

It's also VERY expensive to maintain. We do some of the work ourselves but the annual service usually costs in excess of $500.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great tractor. Very reliable and useful if you live in the country and have a large piece of property. It's just not easy to use in certain circumstances if you are an average homeowner.
