I purchased the Mahnidra 5010 based on value, industry quality reputation and lack of tractors of this size manufactured in the United States. The 5010 stacks up very well against all brands of similar size, including price.
After several months of research, phone calls, and visits to dealers, I narrowed my decision between Massey and Mahindra. I went with Mahindra, as it simply added more value, with more tractor. However, it took many emails and phone calls to dealers, in order to compare "apples to apples" with regards to specifications.
The manufactures represent specifications very differently, and creatively, although it may not seem so. Look closely. Time and due diligence are required to truly compare manufactures.
The 5010 is manufactured in Korea, (which is better than china). I'm using the tractor with the bucket, woods box blade and 60' CA grapple attachment, to clear wooded land, tree removal, drive way installation, snow removal, along with many more task.
I will add a woods BH90 once woods has the sub frame complete to fit the 5010. I'm very impressed with the engine and hydraulic power. With only 50 hours, I can't report to the reliability, just yet, however I have lifted, pushed pulled, large logs, trees and cut roads through the woods with no hesitation.
I have been in the manufacturing business for 15 years, I can see the tractor is built well, at a high level of quality. However, there are a couple of issues: A/C had an issue, loose hoses knocked off wires, which caused it to quit, and it has trouble keeping up due to heat being generate through the floor.
Mahindra has acknowledge the issues, and my dealer has assured me it will be resolved. I suspect an insulated floor pad and wrap will solve the problem. I will follow up with more details, regarding the performance of my dealer and Mahindra, with this issue, as well as more feedback on the tractor as I get more time in it.
