Orange Power in a Green World Posted by Mark on 08/04/2013

Overall, this little beast has done extraordinarily well. Between the bucket, the box scraper, and the mower---clearing weeds and brush have been little problem. It has endured some harsh mishaps with nary a wince.

That said, the plastic body looks pretty - but just doesn't hold up. By year 5, the lock downs under the hood had completely degraded (engine heat?) and were broken. The rear tail-lights not only extend beyond the rear wheels but also have zero protection. Hence, a reverse glance against a tree yields a trashed lens and also cracked body.

I have quit using the dealerships for service as I have had new problems suddenly crop up every time. I've been stung pretty hard on a couple of occasions - and now reason it would probably cost less to make my own mistakes.
