My name is Andy Zigan, and I live near Brighton, Colorado in a house on 2.5 acres. I seldom review purchases that I have made, however with this purchase of an LS 3039h compact tractor I am compelled to give a 5 star review.
I had a 2008 Norstar tractor that I decided to trade in because of my 72 year old bad back. I used it very little only when I had to, it was very difficult to get on or off of that tractor because it had a manual transmission and
several levers and pedals that were in the way.
I contacted Legacy Tractor by email asking for a quote for this LS3039 after a great amount of research on the web.
Gary the owner replied quickly and I was very interested and I decided to drive 55 miles north to Fort Collins, Co. to see what he had in stock.
I met with Gary and he showed me several models and spent his time answering my questions. Gary is NOT the high pressure salesman I expected. He is very knowledgeable and I bought the tractor and made a new friend all at that same time.
He delivered the tractor to me in less that 2 hours.
This tractor is just perfect for me. It is easy to get on and off. No levers in the way with the hydro-static transmission.
It really surprised me the amount of power and fast hydraulics it has over the Norstar. I moved 54 ton of topsoil last weekend to my garden area, and it really works great.
My son Steve lives across the lake and will be using it for mowing. I expect to have this tractor for a very long time. I keep it clean and in my shop.
In parting I have to say: DO NOT buy a tractor until you look at the LS series of tractors.
