I purchased the tractor after getting snowed in and having to clear the driveway (approx 400 ft) by
hand. Since then it has hauled a lot of rock, dirt, gravel and stove wood. The 4 stars for Build Quality is due to the factory forgot to seal the ignition system and the tractor refused to shut-off. Local dealer (Run-away Tractor) replaced the wiring harness (under warranty) and the tractor has worked great since. I also have a scraper blade, a turf buster plow and driveway scraper box.
