Perfect Sized Tractor for Food Plotting Posted by Super55 on 04/01/2013

I have an L2500 4wd DT w/loader that I run it through just about everything. Bush hogging, snowblowing, tiller, discing, planting, plowing along with any other task I can find an excuse to find seat time.

The tractor goes off old and proven technology no push buttons on this thing. But with that being said it makes this thing about as rugged as tank. Somebody forgot to tell this tractor it is a 25hp because it doesn't act like one. Majority of my heavy load work (bush hogging/discing) is usually done in 6 or 7 the gear which is probably around 8mph with no stuggling at all.

This tractor would be perfect if it had a live PTO or two stage clutch but unfortunately it doesn't. Snowblowing without live PTO is definitely a challenge and one reverse speed seems to slow and the other too fast.

The tractor trailers well on a light duty 16' tandem axle landscape trailer and can easily be pulled by a 1/2 ton pickup. The L2500 has incredible fuel economy.

All said this is a no fuss bare bones work tractor. 775 hours and the only problem is a front wheel seal that will leave a couple drip spot after a couple months. The implements I run behind it are 5' tiller, 5' snowblower, 5' backblade, 5' york rake, 2 bottom plow, 6' bush hog, 6 1/2' double gang disc, 8' seed drill, 2 row planter
