I have enjoyed owning this tractor, it is doing everything I wanted. I bought it used from an auction house and think I got good value.
My only problem has been the shifter that changes from hi to lo range. This seems to stick, and the lever arrangement seems kinda convoluted.
I recently sheared off the bolt that goes into the transmission housing and shifts from hi to lo, and am dealing with that now. If you have one of these tractors get some lubricant into that bolt area. I thought I was doing that enough, but apparently not.
I use a brush hog with the tractor and also a PTO powered chipper, the tractor has plenty of power for both.
