This is a great small tractor for the money and I would highly recommend this tractor to others. I purchased the tractor, loader bucket and 60" mid-mount mower as a package. Removing and re-installing the loader is quick and simple. The mower deck takes under ten minutes to remove and just under twenty minutes to re-install. Maintenance is pretty straight forward with easy access to grease fittings, oil and air filters.
Two items that should be re-visited by the engineers are the locations of the cruise control and transmission drive range selector, being the transmission selector is used more often, if locations of cruise and transmission selector were reversed it would benefit the operator with ease of motion and less head turning required to select. Cruise control for mowing is nice but the speed selection seems to be predetermined multiple speeds like notches on a internal selector which under some mowing conditions is either a bit to fast or a bit to slow.
