I purchased my Mahindra 3505 from a Dealer in Houston, TX. I talked with the manager of the dealer and negotiated price---got it for $4,500.00.
Got it delivered to Ms. for $500.00. I changed the oil, all filters and began using it to Bush Hog 5 to six acres and gardening. I really enjoy the power steering especially since I am 76 yrs. old.
I had a Yanmar 2210 26 hp. For 13 years with no problems--just not enough h.p. The only problem I have with the Mahindra is after sitting unused for a few months, the clutch pedal is sticking in the down position and will not engage unless I pull it up by hand.
I discovered that the grease fitting was stopped up not allowing grease to get to the slider shaft. Purchased new grease fitting to correct this problem.
