I purchased this tractor over the internet from Little Tractor over in Metropolis IL last summer while I was still stationed overseas. Just took delivery of the tractor recently and I'm very impressed with the build quality of this machine. It's more like a new car than a tractor in the fit, finish, and detail of the tractor.
While I've only used it to do a few hours of bush-hogging and move some heavy equipment around the property, it has been a pleasure to operate. All the controls fall naturally in hand and operate smoothly. The 3-point hitch is very easy to hook up with all the adjustments it has, and the ability to move it up/down from the rear of the tractor is very helpful.
I'm very happy to have purchased the hydrostat over the gear; much easier to use for FEL work. So far, so good with this tractor. I'll update as time passes.
