This tractor has performed flawlessly. I've used the front-end loader quite a lot using the bucket, forks, and grapple. There have been no issues, except when using the front-end loader if I ride the clutch too much it does heat up some.
I use it for raking hay, working in the garden, bush hogging, finish mowing, and moving logs for firewood. It's just all around work around a small farm of 120 acres.
It has never had any issues mechanically at all. I would buy another one. If anyone was comparing these to the New Hollands, look at the manufactures plate. The New Hollands were being produced by LS.
