My First "Real" Tractor Posted by Joseph Kendall on 11/05/2012

Have only 12 hours and am still getting used to controls, operation, touch and feel. Having used a late 70's Bolens HT23 with a lot of accessories for the last 20 years was okay but the Mahindra is addictive!

Most of the 12 hours has been mowing with the rotary "bush-hog" and reclaiming about 2 acres of overgrown field. Found "a few" rocks, dug em out (if they didn't wiggle after a tug or two with the bucket they stayed). Have tested the 4WD without getting stuck a couple times (Bolens was 2WD). In general am impressed with the FEL (quick attach bucket) and overall power - think I would possibly like at little more at the PTO.

Have a couple nit pick things like others who've reviewed this unit 1. Needs a toolbox 2. Seat belt re-tractors: once unbuckled they fall into unseen places... otherwise impressed.

Have just purchased a softcab, looking into rear ballast and quick mount plow 6/7 ft.
