Hard Working Tractor Posted by Todd on 03/02/2013

I haven't had this tractor for to long but have used it quite a bit. It is used so there are a few things that need attention. The shuttle linkage needed to be adjusted. The clutch needs adjustment and the brakes stop but have to stand on them on a hill...and I have lot's of those.

So far I have been mainly working on roads. There is 1 mile of driveway and an old rock quarry of sorts. It is hard work on the tractor getting the ground to give up the desired rock but so far this tractor is doing great. I didn't get any manuals for it but have some coming. AGCO publishing has them but don't give them away---expensive! That's my review. Oh, couldn't get 'er done without the 4 wheel drive; a must have here.
