I bought this tractor to do much needed chores around my property, and to remove snow in the winter. Let me say I'm impressed with the 22 HP tractor. I have moved large boulders and small trees without effort.
I am disappointed with the dealer I purchased the tractor from in Ridgecrest, CA. The salesman (Ayub) lied to me and told me the tractor was a 2012 model. Part my fault, I should have done more homework before I purchased the tractor.
The paint was faded and the decals including the dash decals were all faded from sitting on the lot. I spent 2 days polishing it with compound and wax. I also purchased a box blade and landscape rake in addition to the loader that was already installed. The dealer mounted the box blade brackets on wrong and the box blade folded into the rear tires, and cut into the rear tires on day one.
Ayub the salesman first tried to offer me $300.00 to settle their mistake. After 3 months of being told the tires were on backorder, I finally got upset with Ayub and he admitted to ordering the wrong tires. He eventually paid for new rear tires and kept complaining he didn't make any money on the deal (where is my violin).
When the tractor needed the 50 hour service, and I added a canopy to the ROP, I choose to drive 130 miles to a different dealer (Kings River Tractor) in Visalia, CA. These guys are real tractor dealers. They treat you with respect and are professional. Do your homework when selecting a dealer so you don't end up with problems like I did. So far I'm happy with my choice of choosing a Mahindra tractor.
