Outstanding Posted by Chris Bartolo on 03/22/2013

I paid $21,500 delivered, which I felt was an excellent price when compared with some of the bigger names that would have run around $30K to get similar capability.

The engine is very smooth, and starts immediately, even in cold weather (used it many times in the low teens this winter). The loader has enough power that the limiting factor is often how much counterweight you have available. The controls all fall to hand as they should, and routine service is easy to manage...clearly some thought put into the way this tractor was designed. I can honestly say that there are really only two things I'd change, and they aren't remotely enough to make me regret my decision. First, I'd make the left side brake pedal smaller so there's more room for your feet while getting off and on the tractor. Second, I'd like a bit more total lift to the FEL in the fully dumped position. I only noticed this when loading a 30 Cu Yd rolloff dumpster....I managed it, but a little more lift would have made it easier. I was pretty surprised that a complete set of filters was only $150 from the dealer, and you don't use all of them every time.
