Nicely Equipped Without Breaking The Bank Posted by Fred C on 11/14/2013

This is my second Mahindra and my first cab tractor. The first was a 2516 and it was a great little tractor, but I'm getting older. It was getting harder to use a rear snow blower with no weather protection.

The 3616 Cab took care of that and more. I have the front 66" mounted blower with all hydraulic controls and it is a joy to use in the heavy snow we get east of Lake Ontario. It is also nice for mowing in August with the A/C.

Heat and A/C work like a champ. Pre-wired for a Jensen heavy duty radio. It plugged right in in a few minutes. Front and rear wiper/washers and work lights. I added a quick hitch so switching between the mower and the back blade is a snap.

It is a heavy machine with loads of power. If something fits in the bucket, it will lift it. The rear tires are loaded and I haven't needed a counterweight. The shuttle shift is a little finicky at times, but not a big deal. It is a shade over seven feet tall so there are definitely places it won't fit. If you keep your tractor in a shed, take that into consideration.

Between the two machines I owned, the only problem I had was a leaky hydraulic hose which the dealer replaced under warranty.
