Strong Utility Tractor Posted by Richard on 10/17/2012

Purchased open station model with LA1353S Loader with 3rd function capability and 84" bucket, two rear remotes, cast iron rear wheels and radial tires 12.4x24 front and 18.4x30 rear R1 AG, loaded rears.

Very capable tractor, much more stable than I expected, never need additional rear ballast when doing loader tasks. Most of my work is in steep timber where this tractor rarely surprises me with unpredictable movement or shifting of weight.

Controls are handy, work station is roomy and comfortable. Transmission shifter is sometimes tricky but expected with a cable shifter.

Horsepower is never an issue and 12 speeds make correct gear selection easy. Hydraulic shuttle works very smooth and synchronized 6 speed makes gear changes smoothly.

3pt works precisely in position mode or draft mode. Lift capacity matches or exceeds machine weight. Extendable arms and telescoping links make equipment hookup and unhook simple. Three lift positions on arms and floating setting on lift links make 3pt compatible with any task.

Overall very pleased with tractor and glad I went for 9540 over 8540 for added HP and larger tires.
