Max 28 HST with FEL and Backhoe Posted by Kenny on 11/14/2013

Marketing hype got me a little bit on this guy (but that's not always a bad thing ;) ), I knew about what I wanted though, and I had a specific price range and this was the tractor with the most features within that range.

It sits a bit higher than most "sub compact" tractors, but lower than what many consider "compact" tractors (so, it's a small tractor but not the smallest. I don't care much for non-descript titles (is a yugo a compact or is it a sub compact car?).

I'm using it to clear property and configure an urban farming type of enviroment focusing on the cultivation of peppers (extremely hot varieties).

It has done well, I had to have the seat replaced shortly after I bought it due to a wiring issue with the seat safety switch (the swivel cut the wires, as it turns out, there was a missing zip tie to hold the wiring out of harm's way and I would have addressed it myself had I known about it before hand).

The backhoe works well, The front end loader works well. Just wish it had a larger bucket sometimes. Dropping the hoe and attaching 3ph items is a breeze. The longest it took me was the first time---5 minutes without opening the owner's manual. This is without a doubt the best tool purchase of my life.
