Purchased my LS at Middleport Tractor ,Middleport Ny. Very good deal and very good family dealer. As a Canadian the price was about $4000 less than buying Ontario.
Have used the shuttle shift for 145 hours mostly moving and digging dirt, firewood, pulling large logs and snow removal.The G3033 never disappoints and continues to impress.
Couple very small issues re assembly quality control however easily corrected at home. No regrets with this purchase and it continues to impress. Previous experience was two 2 wheel drive 40-50 hp diesel farm tractors and this 4 wheel drive 33 hp LS outperforms in every way.
Interestingly I was warned away from LS by my diehard American Iron only very experienced Farmer neighbor whose opinion I respect however the LS price tag played a huge part in my decision and my neighbor now regularly borrows my LS for a variety of smaller needs (including lifting repaired parts back into his International).
