You Get What You Pay For. Posted by heyscottman on 10/19/2010

I bought this machine used with 275 hrs. Its got a lot of muscle for its size. Twelve gears give you the right speed for anything and it's very user friendly--anyone can learn to operate it in minutes. The hydraulics are strong and as others have said, slow, however with the lifting power of the slower loader, it's safer.

I've had both back wheels off the ground with ease. The engine and driveline perform flawless. I've started it at 15 below. It took some extra throttle and took a while to clear the exhaust, although I've seen all the problems others have.

The PTO sticks--sometimes it wont turn on and sometimes it wont shut off. Electrical headaches. The paint faded to a pink/purple (I'd advise painting with automotive grade finishes).

The front tires are simply not heavy enough and only made in that load range. The hydraulics are worthless in cold weather without a 20 minute warm up, which may involve opening the bleeder. The engine is a part of the frame and most of the bolts either come loose or snap (there was a recall with braces that "helps") so they need to be checked a couple times each year. If you can deal with these quirks its a lot of tractor for the money and I have no regrets.
