Luzhong Bearcat 30HP 4WD Tractor 4 in 1 Front End Loader Posted by Scott on 05/08/2013

Hi all, Had this tractor 3 years or more now and would not recommend them to anyone 4 in one bucket broke at hinge joint first log (about 30cm round and maybe 100kg). Got it welded up and then the other side broke so just welded it up and only use as standard bucket.

First time I used PTO, the fork in the housing somehow slipped off, had to take top of box off and new parts to fix (was fixed under warranty). Both bucket tilt rams seals replaced after 100 hours then rams bent and had to replace. Agent could not supply them had to buy some Australian ones and do to some major converting to make fit.

Shuttle shift lever pin kept falling out and to replace you have to take dash off to get to it. After three times I ended up putting hi tensile bolt and locktiteing it. Starter motor has fuseable link blew many times for no reason in the end I just hard wired it straight to starter.

Fuel gauge failed after 1 year got replaced then after a few tanks now reads 1/4 full when it runs out (bit of a pain). 4WD gone now not sure of problem yet no bang or didn't feel anything let go it was spinning in mud when front wheels just stopped going round.

So now I can't sell it cause it's not worth anything. Paid $20,000 For 4 to $5,000 more at the time could have got a quality brand name wish I knew then what I know now. In my opinion a mini bobcat would be stronger than these Luzhong crap.

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Cheap but it not a pro unless you just want to cart a small bale of hay around. Cons: They fall to bits and they change parts every few years so getting replacement parts is extremely hard. Spends more time getting fixed than used. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: Australia Outside of the U.S. I also considered buying: New Holland 4060, Mahindra 5010 Gear Cab, Bobcat 753
