As a first time buyer, and knowing little about tractors, I thought my decision would be between John Deere and Kubota. After researching and going to see them, I saw an ad about Mahindra and looked into their choices.
Right away I saw some pluses for Mahindra. First the body is all metal, built from the frame up as a tractor, not a lawn mower, and great support and service from the local dealer.
One other deciding point was that Mahindra Finance offered 0% interest for 72 months. The tractor with loader and backhoe was about 20K and I also purchased a rake, blade and seeder. Since then I added a post hole digger and boom. I've used them all.
Recently I spread about 80 tons of stone, planted a dozen large trees. leveled and smoothed a rough section of ground, and put up a section of fence. I haven't had the slightest hiccup or problem with the tractor. Maintenance is easy. I couldn't be more satisfied and would recommend anyone to at lease take a look at Mahindra.
