L2800, ergonomically designed machine, hydrostatic foot pedal in a good spot, bucket controls are easy and simple to use and in a good spot. Have run a 5ft bushhog on a field with no issues and cleaned snow out of the driveway in the winter.
This is a 5 star machine in everything but value do to the cost of it. We spent 19000 on it new in 2010. Got quoted 23500 for a Mahindra 4035, way more machine for the money. I don't use it a lot because all of our equipment is to big and rated higher then the 28hp. it was a bad buy for me but that doesn't reflect on the overall quality of the machine.
