The tractor was purchased used (560hrs). It replaced a AC 5040 that had 3000 hrs and needed a lot of work (more money than it was worth). The Mahindra was a gamble, not many in this area. With low hours the question was why are they selling it? Turns out that it was used to clear land and was too big to cut the lawn after the house was built.
It runs excellent. Good on fuel for an 80HP tractor and supplied much needed weight. Local dealers are 60+ miles away and sell mostly 25 to 40 HP units. Don't even carry oil filters. Would purchase another any day.
