Bought it new in '01. We have 5 hilly acres and bought it mainly for mowing. It drives great and cuts very well, but the machine has always been unreliable. Too many leaks to document. Even replaced the trans.
Finally disconnected the FEL and cut off the hydraulics to the front to prevent any more leaks. For the last 2 yrs. we have been battling starting problems. Dealer has replaced a few switches but that has not solved the problem.
