I purchased this 5 year old tractor & loader used with approx. 400 hours on it. It previously had been worked fairly hard by a residential const. company.
I've put 50 hours on it, and just started having starting problems which I believe are the result of the 1 to 4 second glow plug timer and maybe several burned out glow plugs. I plan to install the 10 second conversion kit (which includes plugs) for $200.
After 400 hours of box blade use the three point hitch is also a bit spastic. It is, however, a qt. low on hydraulic fluid and could probably use a new filter. The tractor is a real workhorse for the money, and if I can easily fix the starting problem it deserves 5 stars. I rated the dealer experience 4 stars because of the lack of dealers/service in some areas.
